Prints on demand: getting better all the time

Posted by Kim Fraser on Mar 11, 2015 4:00:28 PM

Last year the online shop integrated prints on demand into our new website, making it easier for you to order a print and any other product at the same time. After listening to initial feedback we are relaunching our prints online with some additional features.

 

When selecting your frame you will now be able to see how it will look surrounding your image, allowing you to decide the best way to showcase your chosen work.

All prints - whether they are rolled or framed - arrive with a white border, which has previously been included in the measurements of the print. After your feedback you will now be able to see the size of the image alone, in addition to the size of the print.

Remember that all of our framed images come ready to hang. Read more about your prints including the specialist printing process, bespoke handmade frames and recommended hanging guides here.

The Choice is Yours

But which print is right for you? With over 500 images the choice can be overwhelming. With that in mind let's take a look at our top five bestsellers since the integration and see which key trends you are picking up on.

 

1) Golden birch

Photographed by Herfried Marek, Golden birch is our most popular image.

 

This has been, by far, your favourite image. With such vibrant greens and yellows shining through a stark white surface, it's almost hard to believe that this is a photograph. It's easy to see why so many of you love it.

 

2) Magic mountain

Any image featuring the northern lights is always popular. Not surprising when you see the range and depth of colour some of our photographers manage to capture. The ethereal glow of Magic mountain has found its way into many of your homes.

 

3) The mouse, the moon and the mosquito

The deep violet and pink of the Western Montana night sky has been another firm favourite amongst you. The perfect piece of wall art to create an atmospheric setting in your home.

 

4) The greeting.

The greeting is the most popular print that doesn't feature in this year's Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition. It was actually entered into last year's competition where it came first in the Nature Black and White category.

 

5) Snow stand

Snow on trees has been a big feature this year. This snowy forest scene caught Silvio's eye on his drive home through the heart of Italy. The monochrome contrast crisp white snow against the dark bark underneath made this image a real-life black and white photograph.

 

We can see from your top five that there are two themes you are raving over.

 

  1. Stark white images that highlight other colours shining through.
  2. Dark, yet 'glowing' colours that give an ethereal yet atmospheric feel.

 

But there's plenty more to choose from if you want to buck the trend. Each printed to a Museum shop finish on a choice of paper or canvas, and then yet another choice of framed or rolled. Our prints on demand is the ultimate bespoke service.
