Art of print offers bespoke giclée printing for all types of art. We guarantee consistent, unparalleled, vibrant fine art giclée prints for illustrators, photographers, galleries and basically any creatives who create beautiful artwork.

Giclée prints are an archival printing style on old-world materials such as fibre and cotton-based paper with cutting-edge inkjet coatings. Artworks are printed in high resolution with specialised inkjet printers using pigment inks on a choice of fine art papers. Art of Print uses Canon printers of the latest generation. These machines are the pinnacle for photographic and fine art printing, the imagePROGRAF series delivers unsurpassed all-around quality. With a stunning 12-colour ink system, rapid print speeds and flawless consistency.

We offer 6 fine art papers in our range, varying in texture, finish, and paper tone, enabling you to get the perfect desired print finish. The result: exceptional quality prints, offering brighter colours, deeper blacks, crisper details, and long-lasting colour.


Photographic prints using resin-coated paper closely resemble traditional photographic prints done using chemicals. These prints are created using our high-end Canon printers.

This process achieves a wider range of colours (known as the gamut), the result, exceptional quality prints, offering brighter colours, crisper details, and long-lasting colour.

So, whether you are an amateur photographer or a seasoned professional, you know that your work shines the finest once it is printed.
Your finest work deserves to be on a wall – not just tucked away on a hard drive. 

A photo printed on canvas combines homely aesthetics with classic elegance. For the best results, Art of Print uses high-quality canvases that meet the highest detail standards for image reproduction.

Art of Print offers two canvases with a matte surface, giving your artwork a vibrant effect. We have optimised our canvas material for an even more intense colour and a natural look. The structure of our cotton blend canvas is reminiscent of a classic painting, which makes it particularly suitable for portraits, wildlife, illustrated artworks.

We strive to keep bringing our Art of Print quality to the level. This is is why we now use an improved process for our canvases with Canon printers of the latest generation. The pinnacle of photographic and fine art printing, the imagePROGRAF series delivers unsurpassed all-around quality. This is a large format game-changer with a stunning 12-colour ink system, rapid print speeds, and flawless consistency.

You have the option to have your canvas ready to hang, you simply hang your canvas directly on two nails or screws using the carrier frame. The canvas print is wrapped on a high-quality handcrafted stretcher frame made from Wawa wood (Obeche), which is lightweight and less prone to warping. We only use wood from sustainable forests.

Alternatively, if you do not require your canvas print to be stretched over a wooden stretcher bar, we can print a flat canvas that can be rolled up and packaged in a core making it easy to transport. Your print will include a stretching border which enables you to stretch your canvas at later date.

The Finishing touches - Mirrored or Image Blur for your canvas edges. Mirrored edges are recommended for pictures that cannot afford to have any part of the picture make any part of the picture re mirrored and printed at the edges before the canvas is wrapped. By mirroring the outer areas of the picture on the sides of the canvas, we ensure your entire photo remains visible from the front. Image Blur is used in conjunction with mirrored edges, blurring the duplicated edges to create a beautiful, coloured wrap with all the colours found in your image.

If you are so inclined, you can select an additional frame for your photo canvas. We have a canvas floater frame made from Wawa wood or Hardwoods of various colours and finishes. If you choose additional framing using our floater frame, a metal hanging bracket will be fitted on this frame, making hanging easier and more precise.

We are committed to those who create and appreciate art and helping them share and show it. Every order is personally handled and packaged with care by our experienced staff.

When you spend time, money, and effort creating your art, it's important to partner with others who share your passion; people who've made the same emotional investment as you have. We aim to bridge the gap between inspiration and finished work for photographers, artists, hobbyists, and aficionados around the world. In fact, we now offer four of our most popular framing styles online without making you feel overwhelmed.

Framing Styles

Our selection of frames are available in four different colours and you can choose between wood or synthetic.

  • Classic Contemporary
  • Box frame
  • Reverse Box frames
  • Aluminium frames

Each frame is made to order with your image fitted securely inside your frame. Alternatively, you can also order your frame empty according to the sizes specified online. You can upload a photo from your phone or computer, or you can send your images via WeTransfer or Dropbox Link.

Often when we think about a frame, we think of its function rather than its form.
Strong and sturdy or minimalist and delicate, the frame of a picture is not a means of securing a piece of art, it is also meant to complement the art itself. Fortunately, our variety and selection of custom framing options can accentuate any colour, composition, and style of artwork for centuries to come.
Art of Print has elevated the practice of custom framing by bringing all steps of the process in-house. Every frame is hand-cut, joined, and finished right here by our Master Craftsmen. Because we make every part of our fine art giclee and canvas frames to order under one roof, we can easily meet your needs for odd sizes and tight deadlines. We go big, and we do it fast!
Your prints and original works are handled and framed with the utmost care to create an immaculate one-of-a-kind piece, every time.

Why custom Framing?

Have you ever purchased a ready-made custom frame from a craft supply or home décor store? Then you know the frustration of trying to fit your odd-sized photo, print or artwork into a pre-determined size that makes no sense. You’ve seen the limitations when it comes to how the art is displayed within the frame. Custom art and print framing is exactly what it says: custom! The frame and all associated materials have been custom-cut to exactly fit just your piece, and the options to display the art are almost limitless. But we also understand how daunting it can be to visit a high-end frame shop; the pricing is confusing, and the lead time can be weeks.
We found a solution! By bringing everything under one roof in Pretoria, we have streamlined the custom framing process and eliminated the need for a frustrating trip to the frame shop. Because everything is built in-house, we can offer fine art custom picture framing. Bring your piece to life by matching your chosen frame with one of our Custom Framing Treatments.

Gallery Frames with a Mat

Create an impact with a gallery frame and mat combination. Our custom-built, wood frames are created in-house for a one-of-a-kind custom fit. Choose from a variety of finishes to accentuate the light, colour, and style of your image. With many options available, you are only limited by your imagination. Our non-acidic, light-resistant museum mats are free from wood fibres and are produced with a bevelled edge.

Floating Frames

Floating frames are ideal for DiaMounts and canvas prints. With a high-end, contemporary look, floater frames leave a small gap between the picture and the edge of the frame. This floating effect makes the artwork leap out of the frame for a dramatic finish. Let us help you select a floater frame that matches the feeling of your print, photograph, or other art pieces. Floater frames are also ideal for canvas artwork that has seen better days by protecting the edges without further damaging the piece.

Box Frames and Shadowbox Frames

Looking for more depth in your final framed photograph or giclee print? Shadowbox frames are a bold design choice that turns artwork into a statement piece. While typically associated with displaying memorabilia that does not fit in traditional frames, shadowbox frames are ideal for displaying artwork as well. These custom-fitted frames are available in a variety of profiles with a broad spectrum of colours and finishes. Best of all, shadowbox frames do not limit you to the traditional standard frames and mat combination.

Float and Raise Frame

One of the most popular ways to frame art in a shadowbox is using the raised island float frame method. The photograph (or print or giclee) is mounted directly to a mounting board designed to appear as though the artwork is “floating” inside of the frame. This is especially helpful when the edges of the print must not be covered by a mat board or frame rabbet. Our artisans mount your art to an acid-free, lignin-free mounting board. This board is then mounted to a second mounting board, cut larger than your artwork, making it appear to float not just within the frame edges, but within the depth of the frame itself.

DiaMount® is a system that bonds images directly and permanently to acrylic sheets using a neutral PH adhesive system. It is the worlds most established and quality proven face-mounting process. This makes it possible to produce an exceptional durable finish, without bubbles or cracks, and to perfectly protect the print.Photographs are mounted to high exhibition standards without borders and eliminate the need for a traditional picture frame.

The combination of this specialised technique with light penetration and refraction in clear acrylic results in enhanced image definition, bright colours, and detailed textures for all artworks. DiaMount® are backed with Aluminium composite material, to reinforce the rigidity of the finished picture.

An aluminium Sub-frame is attached to the back of the Aluminium composite, allowing the artwork to hang floating on the wall, with no obvious means of support. The subframe provides structural stability to your artwork. Your print is ready to hang and accompanied by hanging and care instructions, placed by hand by our master framers.

Our DiaMount® are made using the finest Plexiglass available: PLEXIGLAS Gallery® offers UV protection of up to 99.7% making it one of the most effective UV blockers among glazing materials and therefore complies with the highest conservation requirements. We offer this product in both a matte and a gloss finish. Once the image has rested, it’s then backed by a rigid aluminium composite material (ACM), like Dibond®, encapsulating the print in an airtight sandwich.

This process gives you a modern contemporary feel whereby it appears to be floating on a wall. Yet we’re not limited to this finish as it can also be framed, giving you that timeless classic look. Discuss your preferences with our consultants.

  • Excludes fine art prints.
  • Includes an aluminium sub-frame for easy hanging
  • Can be framed
  • Custom sizes are available.
  • Current maximum size DiaMount® to Plexi is 1490mm x 2900mm.

* A Note on Accuracy

While we strive to achieve utmost accuracy, it is essential to understand that 100% colour matching may not always be possible due to varying factors such as equipment, inks, and papers. Reproducing colours from glossy artwork onto matte fine art paper, for instance, can lead to slight discrepancies. In such cases, the inks used in the printing process might not precisely match the original pigments, as they are different compounds with distinct characteristics. Nonetheless, our art printing aims to create sellable reproductions that remain faithful to your original artwork.
