Super quick, 100% recycled, short run digital printing

The Art Print tool kit. Part 1.


Here at PRINT.WORK, we love to print art. We’re proud to supply so many talented artists, illustrators, photographers and designers with our super high quality art prints on a range of tactile and premium recycled paper stocks.
We’re on a mission to help more artists and designers sell their work online, so we’ve started to put together a handy toolkit of resources and information.
In part one, we’re giving away some neat paper texture downloads and high-res mockups to help display work online.
Our paper textures

Here’s a really handy set of paper textures taken from our very own house stocks. Use these to create really accurate, natural looking mockups of your work, or simply to give you a good idea of how your finished print might look in the design stage. They are all 300dpi and set up to A3 (with 3mm bleed) ready to go.

If you’re working in Adobe CC suite, a really handy way to see a more accurate representation of your artwork printed is to set the layer to ‘multiply’ allowing darker ‘bumps’ and textures to show through.

 

Boring Disclaimer: Whilst we have made very effort to match our paper in real life as accurately as possible, please bear in mind that if you order with us, colours on screen sometimes differ from your final product.

 

Shiny product mockups

Let’s face it, we don’t all have access to fancy equipment and even fancier set design to frame our work. Here’s our first set of super slick, instagram friendly frame mockups that can be easily edited in Photoshop, all layered up with smart objects and our paper textures. Complete with realistic reflections ready for you to drop in your artwork. You’re welcome!

Printing your art prints...

Ready to print? We’ll print multiple designs, short runs and we’ll even print down to one copy if that’s all you need. All art prints are run through on our heavy or chunky card stocks, so whether you’re hanging them proudly in a frame or sending them out in the post, they’ll be sturdy, high quality and without a dog-ear in sight. Here’s a quick link to our art print products but if you need a hand, feel free to get in touch.
