The images you see on this site are available as art paper or canvas prints in a variety of sizes. A selection of frames is also available from our framing studio. Some of the larger print sizes will not be available to select for certain small images due to the file sizes.
Art Paper prints are printed on a thick matt paper and have a slight texture, which gives a picture the feel of a water colour painting. The print is produced using Giclée inks, which make the colours slightly more vibrant than on standard Satin prints.
Canvas prints come either stretched over a wooden frame ready to hang on a wall, or rolled up for you to frame yourself. If ordering from outside the UK, postage and packaging costs are likely to mean it is cheaper to purchase a rolled canvas and have stretched locally when you receive it.
Frame details can be viewed by clicking on the "View frame detail" information button under the frame selector. Clicking on the button opens a panel showing a close-up and section view of the moulding.
Fitzwilliam Museum Prints uses the latest digital technology. However, because the original images in our collection come in all shapes and sizes and are not cropped or distorted, there are no standard sizes. This means that different images will have different sized borders. When you order a print, the product choice screen will give you an approximate idea of how the image will fit on different print and frame sizes. You may therefore decide to choose a print size that best suits the dimensions of your image.
Art Print Frames
* size varies depending on the aspect ratio of the image. If an image has say an aspect ratio of 4:3 (width to height) and you wanted to buy a 1.00m x *m sized canvas, then the image size on the canvas would be 1.00m wide by 0.75m high.
When ordering canvas prints, we offer sizes in 0.25m increments, starting at 0.5m (these increments being the length of the longest side of the image).
Rolled canvas prints are shipped with a 75mm white space around the image to enable you to get it stretched properly. The largest rolled canvas print we currently produce is 1.25m x 0.95m.
Stretched canvas prints are shipped using 25mm stretcher bars for A4 size canvases and 35mm stretcher bars for the larger size canvases. The image is printed with a white border so that it is this white canvas that is wrapped around the edge of the stretcher bars. The larger sizes have a crossbar. The largest stretched canvas print we currently produce is 1.25m x 1.00m.
