Thurston Photo fine art prints offer After Pay


All our prints come standard with Premium Satin Matte photo paper, however, here we provide the option to upgrade to Hahnemühle Fine Art Papers.

The Fine Art Hahnemühle Photo Rag® 308 smooth Matte paper is a relatively smooth white cotton rag, acid free paper specifically designed to meet the needs of photographers or artists using digital printing.

At 308 gsm this paper provides the weight of an art paper with a rigid calendered surface, which picks up every detail captured. It’s everything you want from a matte fine art paper with excellent image sharpness, optimum colour graduation and very good d-max. Its’ very slight surface texture does not interfere with image detail making. It’s an excellent choice for archival printing of black & white and colour photographs with a matte finish.

Photo Rag® Metallic features a special silvery-shimmering surface finish. The high-gloss premium inkjet coating with a unique metallic effect guarantees impressive printing results with bold colours, deep black and the perfect reproduction of colour and detail. Photo Rag® Metallic is acid and lignin-free and meets the most exacting requirements in terms of age resistance.

      Canvases: Our high quality 400gsm fine art canvas offers a fine structure and premium bright white inkjet coating for amazing reproduction of our ocean art photography. Combine this with genuine ultrachrome inks of professional Epson printers and you have a canvas print with a lifetime of outstanding longevity. Each canvas is then sprayed with a liquid laminate, which not only enhances colour but also protects against UV fading, dust, minor scratches and water spills. Then expertly gallery wrapped over a stretcher bar made from quality Australian pine and finished with a tape seal backing plastic wrapped for delivery. It's the best Canvas product you can buy.

      Framed Prints: Our popular fine art framed prints are printed on high quality 250gsm Satin Matte or Metallic Pearl paper. Then mounted on acid free foam core and complemented with brilliant white acid free mat board. Custom cut timber frames are then added, with reflection control glass installed. Professionally finished on the back with a tape seal and hanging wire ready to display in your space. Please allow 4-5 days minimum off season (up to 5-7 during holiday seasons due to increased demand) for processing. If you live outside of Australia we suggest ordering a print only and have it framed locally in your country to avoid potential shipping damages.

      Acrylic Panels: Our Acrylic Panels are a fine peice of work, a slightly more costly option but a premium choice, showcasing our art in an an almost 3d effect, printed on Metallic Paper then set into a high quality 6mm clear acrylic panel that floats on the wall using an Aluminum french cleat hanging system. They'll take a minimum of 5-7 business days before they are shipped out.

      Once you place your order, we typically process it within 24 hours, our print facility then schedules it in for production, a process that we are very passionate about. Every little detail is accounted for in producing the most immaculate and beautiful piece of art possible for you to get a lifetime of enjoyment out of. For unframed paper prints and our 8"x12" matted prints, generally allow 3-5 business days before your print is ready and shipped to you, where ever you are in the world. If at any stage the process is taking longer, please feel free to get in touch and we will follow up your order immediately. See 'shipping details' for more info.
