It does not need to be expensive. Prints start well below $50, depending on the surface chosen.

What size art is best to give as a gift?

In general, choosing a smaller piece will make it easy for the recipient to incorporate into the decor of their home. For example, they could add it to an existent grouping, display it in on a shelf, credenza or even on their desk. For this type of flexibility choose a piece that is 5x7, 8x10, or 16x20.

If you know they have wall space, for example above a sofa or fireplace, or in a dining room choose a piece 24x36 inches or larger.

Why choose original art as a gift?

Original art is a valuable treasure that is unique. Created with the artist’s own hands using the finest watercolors on 100% cotton archival paper from a mill in Italy that has been producing paper since 1264, it is a little piece of history that can be handed down through the generations.

People that own original art like to know about the story of the piece and the about the artist that created it. All original works i nclude a certificate of authenticity that includes both the artist bio and story of the painting.

Should I frame art that is a gift?

Frames come in a large variety of styles from modern and minimal to ornate. But if you are not sure what style would go best in their home, chose an unframed option. That way they can select a frame that suits their space.

Also, choosing a standard size print will ensure they have many options when it comes to framing.

Or choose a metal print. They come ready to hang and don’t require any framing.

Which type of print is best for a gift?

Smooth Fine Art Paper is a Bright White, Acid Free Smooth Matte Fine Art paper. 230gsm, alpha-cellulose based paper.

Watercolor Fine Art Paper is a heavyweight, textured, archival fine art paper.

High Gloss Metal Print is printed directly onto aluminum with a brilliant white high gloss surface for unsurpassed detail and vibrance. Our most popular surface.

Each original artwork is painted with high quality watercolor with the highest lightfast rating. All paper is archival to ensure longevity.
