Frequently Asked Questions

Are the artworks framed?

No. In our view artwork should be framed according to its surroundings, so we leave that to the recipients of the print.

Smaller prints will be shipped in board backed envelopes. Larger prints will be shipped in cardboard tubes.

What is a limited edition print?

Limited edition prints are produced in limited numbers, which is intended to make the picture more exclusive.

Unless otherwise stated, Filthy Beasts will only print 150 of any artwork. 

How will I know if the print is genuine?

Our printer registers every print with the Fine Arts Guild. Every print is also accompanied by a certificate of authenticity, giving you the reassurance that you are investing in a genuinely limited edition print.

What is giclée printing?

It is a method of printing using pigment inks on specially coated paper or canvas. It is pronounced ‘gee-clay’.

It is different from other methods of print in that no printing plates are required, prints are made from high-resolution digital files, pigment inks are computer controlled, uses high-quality ‘archival’ papers, has a wider range of colours (gamut) and the tones are continuous. The inks are sprayed onto the canvas or paper to create the image.

The benefits of giclee printing are:

  • Vibrancy – the widest colour range
  • Longevity – both inks and paper
  • Authenticity – images match the original
  • Quality – uses the finest materials
