Do prints come with a certificate of authentication?
Yes, they do. In fact, not only are the prints supplied with a COA but we also film a short video of Arthur Steel signing your bespoke print(s). We email this footage to you for your records
Are artist proofs & first edition’s available?
Yes, they are. The Arthur Steel Archive is relatively young and as a result artist proofs and first editions (No.1’s) are likely to be obtainable. However, for obvious reasons these come at a premium price, if this appeals to you, simply contact the Archive indicating which image(s) your interested in and we will reply to you with the options available
How are the prints presented to a client?
12 & 20 inch prints are titled, numbered and authentically signed, then carefully enfolded in acid free tissue paper and supplied flat in an acid free 4mm 3-ply box (ideal for gift wrapping). The larger 30, 40 & 50 inch prints are titled, numbered and authentically signed, then carefully enfolded in acid free tissue paper and inserted into a rigid 4mm thick protective cardboard tube for delivery
Is optional dry mounting available?
Yes, it is. Professional Dry Mounting of the larger print sizes can be arranged at an additional cost, the print would then be perfectly flat and ready for framing. However, this makes the overall size bulky and awkward for transporting, so, it may be best for us to send a rolled print directly to your framers and let them carry out the works. You just need to make sure that they are insured as we cannot take responsibility for any damages they may incur

Our Black & White silver gelatin prints are on fibre-based paper ‘Harman Galerie FB Digital’
