Share the joy of your pet portrait with your loved ones
My clients tell me often how their precious animals are so much more than just pets. They’re valued family members integral to their family life. And I share that sentiment very deeply with my own pets.
It’s understandable then, that if you’ve purchased a portrait of a special pet for a family member, or perhaps a close friend, that you would also love the enjoyment of seeing that portrait every day in your own home.
Perhaps you’ve gifted the portrait to your parents for Christmas and they’re over the moon with it. But your pet was such a huge part of your life growing up, and now you’ve left home, you’d love to have that same beautiful piece of art on your wall to remind you of that smiling face and waggy tail.
Or maybe your son or daughter’s dog is as much a part of your life as theirs. You relish those happy dog-sitting weekends, taking your four-legged companion for long walks and adventures. But when they go back to their own home, your house just feels a little empty. If only you could enjoy that same portrait on your wall to brighten up your home when your furry friend is away.
Perhaps the original drawing is proudly hanging on your wall, but you’d love for your parents, or grown up children, to also have the joy of seeing that same special portrait of your family pet each day.
The only problem is, you only have one portrait!

Buy a Giclee Print of your Pet Portrait
After many requests from clients I now have a print service where you can order professionally printed fine art prints of your portrait for other family members or close friends to enjoy.
I understand the precious and personal relationship you have with your beloved pet, and so prints of your drawing will only be available to you. No one else. I’ll never create prints of your portrait for general sale to the public. This is a personalised one-off service to you alone.
So, if you’d love to share the joy of your portrait with your loved ones through a professionally printed Giclee Print, read on!
All Giclee Prints will come mounted and ready to gift.
What is a Giclee Print?
Your print will be professionally printed by a fine art printing facility using a technique known as Giclee Printing (pronounced Gee-clay). Giclee prints are printed using professional pigment-based inks to give extremely high-quality prints with sharp details and vivid colours. You may even struggle to tell the print from the original drawing!
Your artwork will be printed onto Hahnemühle, Bamboo 290 GSM paper. This type of paper is both environmentally friendly, and gives outstanding print results. It has a beautifully soft and lightly textured feel to it, and meets the highest archival standards, meaning it will be highly resistant to ageing.
Each print is made to the highest standards, ensuring the details are crisp and the colours are accurate.
Size options and prices
I have a range of standard sizes below which should meet most requirements. Since the print will come with a border mount around the perimeter (as pictured), I’ve quoted both the image size, and the overall size with the border added. This will tell you which standard frame size your print will fit.
The size you choose is ultimately up to you. I don’t recommend ordering a print larger than the original portrait size as this will result in a reduction of image resolution.
If you’d like a size that is not listed below, please get in touch as I always try to accommodate specific requirements.
If your original drawing was rectangular, please choose from the size options below.
If your original drawing was square, please choose from square size options below.

Will my print come framed?
Your print will come beautifully mounted, and ready to gift. Framing is not included. However, all the sizes quoted above will fit standard sized frames that you can buy off the shelf. This will allow you to choose a frame that suits your personal tastes.
All Giclee Prints will come presented with a mount, and backing board, and in a cellophane wrap, ready to gift.
How will my print be packaged?
Each print will arrive flat, not rolled, and with a stiff backing board and professional mount border. It will be carefully wrapped in cellophane to give protection until it can be framed.

How long will my print take to arrive?
The professional printing facility that I use takes great care in producing work to the highest standard. This means that your print may take a couple of weeks to be produced. Please bear this in mind when ordering. You’ll be kept up to date with the progress and will get a notification to tell you when you can expect delivery.
For international orders, please also allow 5 to 7 working days for shipping to your location.
How do I purchase a print?
Once you’ve decided on your preferred print size, please get in touch to place your order with me directly. I’ll issue you an invoice, and once payment has cleared, I’ll send your order to the printers.
If you’re ordering a print at the same time as booking your original pet portrait, then obviously I won’t be able to order any prints until the original drawing has been completed and approved by you. Once I’ve emailed you a photo of your finished artwork to check that you’re happy with everything, and I've received approval from you, I’ll then submit your order to the printers.
You drew my portrait some time ago. Can I still purchase a print of it?
Yes! I always keep high resolution photos of all my portraits, so I can absolutely have a print made of your portrait for you. Please get in touch to discuss your requirements.
