View from my office window. Gorgeous spring afternoon. Crocus,daffodils and grape hyacinths are all in bloom. The air is filled with the scent of cut grass and our blackbird family are nest building. The day feels good.
Shhhh.....he's sleeping. Now these beds look rather good. I'll tell him when he wakes up.

About

We treasure the work of centuries old Craftsmanship. The Artist. The Engraver. The Printer.

Welcome to Swanborough Prints.
A collection of beautiful hand made prints recovered from original antique prints found from our ramblings through old shops and country estates With subjects covering
Art deco Bathroom and Bedroom prints, Palm Tree prints, Bird Eggs prints, Botanical prints, Sealife prints, Chinese costume prints, Chinoiserie prints and Natural History prints

We search through our antique prints and choose a beautiful old engraving
I hand paint the black and white antique engraving using Watercolours and Gouache paints
Hubby scans and digitally cleans it, which enhances the image.
it's ready for printing using the best museum quality 280 grams watercolor paper with lightfast inks
Your print is taken directly from my watercolored, scanned image.
Sometimes we buy color printed Vintage Lithographs as the image is so good we just have to buy it. We always give you a good clear description on the listing.

Many shops sell images taken third hand from the internet, making the finished work looking dull and grainy. This is not for you......you deserve better than that.
Your image comes from the original antique print or lithograph
Finally beautifully wrapped in pastel color tissue including a waterproof outer wrap for it's final protection to your home

Additional policies and FAQs
*What is Giclee printing and why do we use it.?
Giclee in French means 'to spray'.
It was a term coined in the 1970s to find a word that reflected high-end quality archival printing, used by Artists to produce small amounts of prints from their original work.
This separated them from the then mass produced 4 color printing which left a very flat image.
Giclee printing uses sprays to achieve a likeness that is as close to the original art work as it is possible to get. It achieves wonderful clarity and vigor, rather than the flat toneless old printing method.

* Pigment Inks?
Pigment inks are made using the true color pigment. We use pigment inks especially the 9 color combination to give the best depth and vibrancy of any inks that are available today.

* Excellent Materials - guaranteed.
We could skimp on paper and cheap ink, and bring our price down by a dollar or two.
You will be pleased that we chose not to.
The paper we use for your print is 100% Cotton, Acid Free, Museum quality Watercolor paper
We use 280-315 grams weight an excellent heavyweight paper.

* What is Museum Quality Archival Paper.?
Archival paper is made from 100% cotton fibers which contain no acid residue, which gradually over time turns paper brown. Some people call this patina or aging, which of course is partly to blame for the brown markings.
When cheap paper is produced from mixed materials including wood pulp etc, then it will start to deteriorate over a fairly short period of time.
The acid in the wood pulp remains in cheap paper
We want you to have your print on the wall looking just as good decades further on.

* Our copyright logo will not be present on your print.
Matte and frame are for demonstration only and are not included.
Please remember that colors may vary due to your monitors settings
We leave a small white border on the edges to guide framing
