Prints – Consistently great colour reproduction

Printing is at the heart of everything we do and every product we create. Each substrate is individually profiled for our printers, ensuring fantastically accurate and consistent reproductions. Colour management is a core principle of the Fresh Easel Promise, guaranteeing you the best-quality prints.

Hahnemühle Photorag (HPR)

Hahnemühle Photorag (HPR), 308gsm

  • A heavy-duty matt paper made of 100% cotton rag with a natural white tone and superb black saturation. Popular with professional photographers, this paper produces very high-quality print reproductions.
  • Image reproduction is sharp, crisp and vibrant, with great density and vivid colours.
Hahnemühle German Etching (HGE)

Hahnemühle German Etching (HGE), 310gsm

  • A heavy-duty paper with a more textured finish than Photorag (HPR), the velvety matt surface is optimised for high contrast prints and works brilliantly for limited editions.
  • The paper has a warm white hue providing a perfect surface for reproducing paintings, lithographs and fine art.

Canvas – Handmade by canvas craftsmen

Each stretched canvas begins with a 12-colour giclée print produced from one of three individually curated substrates. We then make a custom wooden frame – in any size needed up to a maximum of 3 metres – and stretch the rolled canvas print over it.

The stretched canvas print is then hand finished by one of the most experienced canvas framing teams; ensuring each corner fold is perfectly smooth, tight and that all fixing staples are covered with special protective tape.

Canvas Stretched

Stretched Canvas

  • Each canvas frame is milled with a curved profile; minimising contact with the face of the canvas; preventing unsightly impression marks and surface cracking. We use finger-jointed canvas frames which resists warping.
  • For larger sizes, we add wooden ‘wedges’ to each corner; ensuring the canvas surface remains taut and allowing easy re-stretching in future years.
Canvas Frame

Canvas Frame

  • A stretched canvas comes with an internal frame created using specialist canvas stretcher bars. In addition, a framed canvas has a traditional picture frame added around the outside edge of the canvas.
  • The simple addition of a wooden picture frame creates a completely new form of wall art; quite distinct to a standard stretched canvas.
