FRAMED PRINT INFORMATION
A Framed Print is a Plexiprint or Alugraph finished with a superior quality timber frame, shipped to you FREE worldwide, ready to hang.
Prints that are currently on display framed in our Gallery, can be purchased framed -exactly as displayed in the Gallery- through this website. If you would like to purchase any other print Framed, please contact the Gallery for a custom quote as the price depends on your choice of framing and other wishes. We use only the finest hand crafted or custom made superior quality frames for our prints. Our framers demonstrate excellent craftsmanship. As a standard, your print will be mounted in between museum grade Plexiglass and a solid backing (Plexiprint) prior to framing as we believe this provides the best look and protection for your print.
Your Framed Print will be shipped to you as a finished product, ready to hang.
If you are unsure of the type of frame you would like, we would recommend purchasing either a Print Only, Plexiprint or Alugraph and visiting your local framer as it is important to view framing samples “live” to get a good idea of colour and texture.

It’s all Australian! Michael is a local Cairns photographer, our Gallery is locally owned and operated and your Framed Print is Australian made and local suppliers are sourced where possible.
There are quite a few steps involved in producing your Framed Print. The photographer needs to sign and number your print, it will need to be printed, mounted and framed. Supplies and mouldings need to be ordered for your print and after completion a custom crate needs to be built for your print. This whole process will take approximately 6 weeks to complete. It will be shipped to you via courier and how long this takes will depend on where you live in the world. Within Australia, shipping could take up to 3 weeks if you live far from Cairns and we ask for your patience with this.
Unfortunately it is difficult to guarantee a certain delivery time frame, as this is dependent upon many factors and people, often beyond our control. If you have an urgent request please let us know as soon as possible. We always endeavor to prioritise urgent requests and are usually successful in doing so.
Customers are asked to please inspect the outer packaging on arrival and notify us immediately if any damage is visible to the outside of the packaging. We also ask you to inspect your print within one week. We will not accept damage claims for your print if you have not notified us within one week of arrival.

Most of our prints are Limited Edition Prints. This means we will only sell the image a limited number of times. An image in an Edition of 95, for example, will only ever be sold 95 times worldwide, regardless of the size. Each print that is sold, will be signed and numbered and accompanied by a Certificate Of Authenticity, stating the number you own in the edition. As the edition sells, the scarcity of the image increases and the price therefore increases as well over time.
If you would like to secure a number in the Limited Edition at the current price, you can do so by paying a $50 deposit on the Print Only price. Your name and your edition number will then be recorded against the image in the Limited Edition Register and this number can not be sold to any other customer. The balance must be paid within 6 months. Your print will be produced when you have completed full payment.
Please contact us today if you wish to secure your number in a Limited Edition.
Hanging your Framed Print is easy. All you need is a few strong screws or hooks in your wall and you are ready to go. You will need a few lights directed onto your print and it can be cleaned with a microfibre cloth.
You will receive more detailed instructions on how to hang and care for your print with your purchase.
(Please note that we use a special gallery hanging system to display our prints in the gallery. We need this system because we frequently change our prints. If you hang your print up at home, you will not have the wires visible above your print but will use normal screws that will be tucked away behind your print.)
