The top priorities for the options listed on Picture Playground are that of quality and longevity. All printing is completed using archival processes that provide ultimate image quality and colour reproduction across the different mediums, and ensure that the prints will not fade or discolour in a short space of time. The framing options have been chosen to complement the photograph and not distract from its viewing pleasure.
The Giclée prints have great longevity and will enhance any space for many years to come. Giclée refers to an individually produced, high-resolution fine art digital print made on a specialised inkjet printer, using both archival media and inks.
The default print option comes unframed, allowing you to match the frame to your interior and taste. It is only recommended that you select the framing or stretching option if you live in South Africa. Transporting a framed photograph or a stretched canvas internationally is costly and there is no guarantee it will arrive in one piece.
The pricing for each product is displayed once you select your desired print, substrate and framing options. For customised print sizes or framing options please contact us.

This professional matt-coated photo paper, with its ability to absorb extremely large amounts of ink, stands out from other papers. Strong, vivid colours guarantee a pleasing and high-quality appearance that is reliable and long lasting, even under extreme conditions.
This paper is the perfect all-rounder for all types of matt printing and is great for glare free viewing.
Acid-free and produced using pure, alpha-cellulose fibre, this paper features a natural, white base with a light texturing. The pleasing tactile quality is designed to replicate cotton-based papers and is ideal if you are seeking the feel of a cotton-based print.
This archival paper is coated using an aqueous pigment and dye, inkjet-compatible technology, so the image comes alive.
This 100% cotton canvas is UV-resistant and provides a high resolution. Unstretched canvases have a thick white border around the image, allowing you more versatility when stretching the canvas around a frame.
Please note that the canvas option is not available for night sky photographs with pin-point stars, as this substrate does not render sufficient, fine detail to do justice to the artwork.
The default option for canvas prints is unstretched. Here, the canvas is supplied with a thick, white border so it can be stretched around a wooden frame of your choice.
When selecting the stretched option, you have the choice of a 25mm or a 50mm wooden frame for the canvas to be stretched around. This is mainly an aesthetic choice, depending on how far you’d like the artwork to protrude from the wall. However, for A0 sized prints a 50mm frame is recommended, and for the large 12×3 panoramic photographs, a 75mm frame is recommended.
Please note that when selecting the stretched option, the image will cover the front of the frame, and a white border will be stretched around the wooden frame.
When selecting the framed option, you have the choice between a black or white 35x35mm, real, wood frame.
The framing provided by Picture Playground is a 100% archival framing process that uses clear glass, an acid-free Fomecore backing, as well as an acid- and lignin-free mount board. This ensures maximum longevity of the print, when displayed outside of direct sunlight.
As proof of authenticity, each image has an embossed logo as well as a signature of the artist on the bottom of the print. These are placed on the white border surrounding the print, not over the actual image.
Please note that canvas prints are supplied with a signature, but cannot be embossed due to the thickness of this substrate. If you would prefer your prints to be embossing and signature free, please contact us.
