Print Details

How are the prints made?

Prints in this shop are giclee prints taken from original watercolour paintings. All started out as unique artworks created by Kerri in her Brisbane studio, not computer-generated digital images. Watercolour is a unique medium, which a computer programme just can’t replicate. Your print will retain as much depth and detail of the original painting as possible.

Which paper type do you use?

We use heavy, 300gsm aquarelle or Giclee paper for all our prints, to make sure they're not only beautiful but long-lasting.

Will my print have the watermark shown in the photo?

All prints come without the watermark shown, and are unframed unless stated otherwise.

Paper size vs. Print size

What paper sizes do you offer?

All listings show the paper size, e.g A4. However, we try to make framing your new artwork as easy and inexpensive as possible. For that reason, the image is sized to suit most standard frames and/or mat openings. For example, A3 prints are on paper measuring 11.7″x16.6″ (29.7cm x 42cm) but the image will be sized to suit 11″x14″ – a very common mat and frame size. So if you have a frame with a 11×14 mat opening, your image will work perfectly, with a little extra paper all around for clearance. Or, if you’d like to use a standard frame without a mat, that’s fine too. Just trim the excess paper to fit (if required) and you’re good to go. One thing to note is that the old adage of 'measure twice, cut once' is really appropriate here! If you're not sure of how to go about trimming the paper, you can ask your local framer to do it for you. It's affordable, quick and sometimes the best option.

Here’s the full rundown on our sizes:

  • A4 – Paper Size 8.3″ x 11.7″, or 21cm x 29.7cm. Image sized to 8″x10″
  • A3 – Paper Size 11.7″ x 16.6″, or 29.7cm x 42cm. Image sized to 11″x14″
  • 12″ x 16″ – Paper size 30.5cm x 41cm. Image sized to 10.5″x10.5″
  • 17"x 22" - Paper size is 17" x 22". Image is sized to suit 16"x20"
