Q: What are the paper sizes of your prints?
A: My prints are sized by their image size and each print has a border with a few exceptions: see below

Prints have a 2" border except the 10x10's which have a 1" border
Exceptions & Notes:
- Print sizes are the image size, add a 2" border on all 4 sides (so +4") to get the paper size, 10x10's have a 1" border (so +2") (see size chart above)
- Print sizes for images on an all white background (i.e. Monopoly) don't have borders so they have one size that is the paper size.

Q: Do you offer framing?
A: All prints are sold unframed, with one exception, I do offer professional framing for the 10x10/12X12 prints only.
SHOP ART PRINTS > Select the Print you want to order > Select the pull down menu to select the size, and here you can select 10x10 FRAMED IN BLACK or 10x10 FRAMED IN WHITE.
For all other sizes: If you are in Toronto, send me a note and we can put you in touch with our preferred professional framer.
Q: What kind of framing do you recommend?
A: I recommend having your prints professionally framed in a black or white shadow box frame. In most cases, my prints have a 2" white border, so a mat isn't necessary (see examples below). Make sure to give your framer the paper sizes in the SIZE CHART ABOVE. Each print comes with a Certificate of Authenticity so make sure to have your framer mount it on the outside back.
Q: What kind of framing do you recommend for original paintings?
A: My original paintings have a 1.5" profile/sides and they are painted so they don't require framing but it does finish the look nicely. If you choose to frame your painting, I like to recommend a simple black or white floating frame, or a frame colour that suits the art piece. I encourage you to ask your professional framer about these and other options and see what they might recommend.
