MOUNTED PRINTS – ready to frame
The mounts are 27 cms square, with a 17 cms square window to display the print. The printed area is 16 cms square, leaving a 5 mm white border between the printed area and the mount. The mount is a soft ivory colour and comes in a cellophane sleeve with a rigid backing board, and is delivered in a rigid carboard envelope.
The images are printed on Epson Archival Matte paper, with Epson Ultrachrome K3 archival ink. This paper is lighter in weight than Epson Ultrasmooth Fine Art paper, but has equally good longevity, at a lower cost. This technology has become the standard for the most discerning professional photographers who seek the highest image quality combined with the best archival print permanence.
One of the most famous points on Hadrian’s Wall is Sycamore Gap, where a beautiful sycamore tree has withstood the rigours of the Northumberland weather for many years. On either side of the gap, the wall climbs steeply up the crest of the Whin Sill, a tabular layer of igneous dolerite rock in the north east of England. This was once the most heavily fortified border in the Roman Empire, and dates from AD 122, during the rule of the emperor Hadrian. The wall was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987.
