We offer a range of specialist print finishes.

Because we’re committed to the integrity of the art we work with, we take a personalised, craft-focused approach to finishing every piece. Our offerings include precision trimming, specialist protective coatings and customised certificates of authenticity to accompany your limited edition print run.

Deckling and print finishing • Hound & Bone Studio

Artwork: ‘Eucalyptus‘ by Edith Rewa (printed on Hahnemühle Photo Rag 308gsm)

Trimming 

Complimentary

All prints are trimmed to their final size – trimming is included in all print prices. We trim every print by hand with the exact tools required for fine art paper – either a large-format rotary trimmer, or the old-fashioned way: with a steady hand and sharp blade.

Protective Spray

20% surcharge

Protect your prints! This fast-drying spray by Hahnemühle seals the print to resist dirt, fingerprints, fading from UV exposure and moisture (N.b. this does not mean they’re waterproof!).
This coating is one of the best on the market. But we only apply it by request, because it can affect archival life due to its alcohol and acetate content.

We recommend against applying on dense, dark tones.

Certificates of Authenticity

Set up cost, per edition: $25.00
Price per COA: $3.00

Our certificates of authenticity are A6, customised with your details and printed on the same paper as the prints in your edition. Certificates for the entire edition must be printed at once.

We have sample certificates in the studio, and you can see digital mockups here:
