Posters: A lowdown on the latest arrivals

It’s all to easy to forget that we offer popular posters, when quite frankly all I’ve been blathering on about is high art (he typed with a cheeky, mocking grin). So, we’ve got the official Inbetweeners film poster, and I’m sure this movie will be pure filth (smiling indulgently as I’ll know I’ll love it!).

While Sergio Pitamitz may not be a familiar name in your household, the chances are that you may have seen his work in your Sunday supplement or a subscription to Newsweek or National Geographic, so we’re very pleased to have added his pictures to our collection of photography.

The Tube Map: How will our understanding of the London Underground map evolve?

The iconic London Underground map has helped many of us understand how to get around our frankly gargantuan capital city. Since the Harry Beck map appeared in 1931, characterised by lines at 45 degree angles, the design has remained consistent, with new lines added as the city has continued to expand. Beck’s classic cartography has also

She recently relocated to her new home-studio in Bristol (which is the new Brighton, don’t you know?!)

Edgar Degas’ Legacy: A Lasting Impressionist Influence

When looking at some images created by Easyart Academy artists recently, I was struck by how influential the art of Impressionist painter Edgar Degas is. Although considered an ‘important’ artist of the movement with his studies of dancers, he’s not held in quite the same esteem as key Impressionist figures such as Monet. Above is a

Vintage Railway Art Prints from The Golden Age of Travel: The National Railway Museum Collection

Whilst busily compiling the best art print and poster collections that we have at Easyart, I’ve recently stumbled some fantastic vintage travel posters from The National Railway Museum. These posters date from the 1920s to the 1950s, and symbolize when railway travel in England (which from the Victorian era had primarily been used for trade and commerce) became

Lady Gaga: Imitator, Innovator, or both?

  On May 23 2011, the Mother (or should that be Mother Monster?) ship descends upon us, bringing the new Lady Gaga album, Born This Way.  Admittedly, Lady Gaga’s image has changed profoundly since she burst on the scene in early 2009 with ‘Just Dance’.  Her outfits are increasingly provocative and complex, ranging from Alexander McQueen lobster claw shoes to a dress

National (Gallery) Treasures

I hope that the following classic canvas art print, Bathers at Asnières, reproduced from the Georges Seurat original in The National Gallery, is helping along the optimistic mood being felt by everyone in the current GLORIOUS weather! However, did you know that some art prints that you’re buying may not accurately reflect, in terms of quality of printing and colour, the

More about framing

Exploded-product

In the Design Studio

We partner with the world's top museums and galleries to bring you exclusive prints of the highest quality. Our teams of designers ensure the colours are accurate, papers are well suited and the best frames are suggested.

Colour Perfecting in the Print Room

In the printing room, artworks are printed on state-of-the-art machines with a team of technicians checking colour and quality every step of the way.

Measuring Up

After being cut down to size, our team carefully finish any stray edges, check measurements and prepare the prints for mounting and framing.

Assembling Frames in the Framing Workshop

We have a team of master framers who work with high-quality, responsibly-sourced wood to create our vast range of framing combinations - each frame is bespoke and made to order for every print.

Hand-finishing in the Framing Workshop

Our selection of hand-finished frames are painted or stained by hand in a variety of colours, and finished with a layer of wax - the end result is a uniquely crafted, beautiful frame that is made to last.

The Last Stop

In this workshop everything comes together - the print, the frame and the glass - in a seamless and stream-lined process.

Mounting the Prints

The artwork is carefully mounted in preparation for framing.

Laying the Glass

Once mounted, the print is ready to be covered by glass or perspex - a delicate procedure but expertly done with not a fingerprint in sight.

The Final Product

After a final, thorough check, the framed print is ready to be carefully packaged up and shipped to the customer.

Transferring to Canvas

For those who order their art as canvas prints, the same amount of attention and care goes into the process. Here, the print is being transferred to a wooden frame.

Finishing the Canvas Edging

As with the framed prints, our canvases are all hand-finished in the workshop - a labour of love from start to finish.
