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. All sizes for our satin paper prints are in inches.


Our wall clocks measure appx 19cm square and are sublimation printed on to aluminium to give a durable high gloss finish. Ideally suited to square images but we will provide a proof before printing if you select any other ratio. Requires a single AA battery (not included)
