Are the prints limited editions?

Yes, they are. The Arthur Steel Archive provides limited edition prints from original negatives. A print is produced in a limited number from the original artwork under the direct supervision of the Artist and the Archive’s guardian. Prints are titled, signed and numbered. The number of prints is strictly limited to the number in the edition. No further prints are ever produced. Contact the Archive should you wish to learn which edition number is currently available

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

What photographic papers do you use?

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

Where are the prints printed?

All prints are bespoke and printed by Metro Imaging in Central London

Does The Arthur Steel Archive maintain the copyright of a purchased print?

Yes, the images on this website must not be downloaded, published or reproduced in any way without full written consent from Patrick Steel of The Arthur Steel Archive

What mounting & framing would you recommend?

• We recommend that prints at 30 inches and over should ideally be professionally dry/cold mounted to perfectly flatten the print. Mounted onto Kappa board or 3mm acid-free solid core board made from alpha cellulose (or similar) providing very high degrees of protection. The board should have passed the silver tarnish test making it suitable for mounting precious photographs
• We also recommend that prints should be window mounted using a Fine Art Trade Guild Conservation level approved mount board, such as: Arqadia 58001, Snow White (or any other colour), 2000 micron mount board
• Glass – May we suggest ‘Artglass’, it will be more expensive than regular glass but offers much greater protection and reduces reflections considerably
• Moulding / Frame – This very much depends on your own budget, taste and decor
