Big Pit Colliery

Big Pit Colliery

Big Pit is a former coal mining colliery near Blaenavon in Gwent, South Wales, United Kingdom. It was a working pit from 1860 to 1980. In 2001 it was taken over by the National Museum of Wales who undertook a redevelopment programme, reopening it as an industrial museum in 2004 and winning the prestigious Gulbekian Prize for Museum of the Year in the same year.

Designed to cover a large amount of wall space, canvas prints are ideal for big rooms. We only use 100% cotton canvas with a thickness of 340GSM. We do not use cheap synthetic fiber alternatives.

We print with a 12 colour process, this means we can print a much larger colour range than most printing companies that normally use a 4 or 8 colour process.
