ARE YOU AN INDEPENDENT ARTIST LOOKING TO WOW PEOPLE WITH YOUR WORK?
Wishbone Publishing welcome all mediums from all artists and are happy to consult and recommend the best artist solution for you.
Your art can be printed onto multiple types of high quality paper and canvases at different sizes ranging from A3 to B0. Once your prints have been completed, you then have the option to pay an additional sum for your art to be mounted or framed for that extra quality. If mounting and framing isn't for you, we also offer striking canvas prints.
To support your body of work, Wishbone can custom design (or use supplied digital files) to print a set amount of A5 catalogue brochures.
Alongside brochures, we also supply wall and window stickers and all additional marketing material.
Digital File Creation
If you only need original work photographed and saved as a high quality digital file for further printing, website promotion or online portfolio, we will save your file either onto a USB or CD.
Original pieces will be photographed in our professional photography studio, and then the digital files will be sent over to Wishbone Studio. Where we have a selection of the finest printers in the industry.
