Our aim is to create unique designer prints at an affordable price while retaining a very good quality print. Our prints currently are either an A1 594 x 841 mm, A2 594 x 420 mm size or a square cut large 594 x 594 mm or small 420 x 420 mm size.

The A1 size and large square cut sizes are surprisingly large when placed within mats and frames :)

A wide variety of A1 and A2 frames (with optional mats) can be bought online easily, for our square prints online framing stores can create custom size square frames. Usually online framing businesses have black, white with many offering natural timber options as well. You can also choose to have your print framed locally within your city of residence.

A good thing to do is to measure the wall space and our prints sizes (adding extra width and height for the mat & frame) to make sure our prints suite the required space.

The majority of our designs are currently printed digitally on quality 250 GSM paper with a matte or gloss finish. We currently have one of our prints as an offset Lithograph which is not a digital print. GSM is a good indicator of quality.

We currently do not have our prints framed (framed with glass and mats), in true De Stijl Fashion :) (We ship internationally).

Some questions to ask: 

Is the print going to be hung on a strongly coloured feature wall? (choose matching colour prints) or a moderately sized off-white living room wall? Is there wallpaper or a strong pattern on our wall? (use a simplified design, not too busy?) Are there specific colours (furniture, architectural) used within the space? Is there much light within the space? (use a brighter or higher contrast print)  Where will the print can be located? Is it a hallway (portrait or square prints), living room, office/commercial area or huge open plan area? (larger landscape prints) And for some of our designed prints, which way will I hang it?

Our designs are printed with a CMYK printing process and they are made to order prints.

Please allow 3 - 7 days for processing/printing. You can choose your preferred shipping method from our Australia Post options upon checkout. 

Our in-house prints are created in vector format only, using vector based applications. Vector based design is a great format and technique used by graphic designers for many years. Having strong design skills with vectors is a good sign of an experienced designer. Vectors scale to any size and designers require many years of practice to master vector design.

Our designed prints are original designs. We do not re-sell anyone else's print designs. 

Prints and posters have a long history within the graphic design industry and more broadly society, many of the famous prints and posters available today are reproductions of by-gone eras. You may recall a well know stylised Barack Obama "Hope" poster design in recent times.

We aim to breathe some life into this industry and offer new editions with potentially (in future) limited editions. Our aim is to create a wide variety of prints for different tastes. Our design work lies somewhere between art and design for the above mentioned reasons catering too not only designers, home and apartment owners, interior-decorators but ultimately creatives and even people with music, art and oil interests.
