And this is what it should look like

The devil's in the detail
This may look like a crazy mess to some, but I got a great deal of enjoyment constructing designs in this style even if, at times, after 2 months of working and re-working, it sometimes felt like they were going nowhere.

Hi I'm Pete, I'm the sole creative, printer and packer of all that you see here at The Designers Nursery. I have been a professional Graphic Designer for over 15 years and have tonnes of experience with all manner of printed matter.

I'm obsessed with older printing techniques such as screen printing and letterpress after spending a few years working in these methods. I also love Movies and TV which is where I normally get my inspiration from.

I started by producing prints for my own home, in particular my daughters room when she can along as I wanted some more unusual than was around at the time to hang on the walls of her room.

Frequently asked questions

Do you do commissions?

From time to time I am available to create custom commission designs, however, due to my work load and schedule this is not always possible. So please don't be too disappointed if I have to decline an offer.

Do you offer more colour ways for your prints?

The vast majority of my designs can be produced in many colours, there's simply too many to list. If you have any specific colours you'd like in mind for a specific print, please get in touch and I'll see if I can help you.

Where do I find frames for these prints in the US?

The best places to find metric frames if you are in the US is either Ikea or Amazon. Alternatively, you may also like to go the custom framing route for a more special touch.

Can I change my shipping address?

Of course, as long as the print hasn't already shipped. :)

Can I get faster shipping to the US?

The quickest standard delivery from the UK is the 'International Tracked & Signed' service which is usually around 10 working days. International next day and 2 day courier services like UPS, DHL and Parcelforce Worldwide are not offered due to the exorbitant cost involved. The cost to ship one of my items via a 2 day service is £50.00 ($71.00)
If you would like to use the International Tracked & Signed service please contact me for custom shipping.

What is the 1 – 2 week lead time?

I operate a print on demand service as I don't have the space to store loads of prints, so this lead time is the time I allow for production of the purchased print(s). Usually I aim to produce and ship items in much less time than this but at extremely busy times this lead time is necessary.
