Every effort has been made to accurately represent the colour and quality of the images you see here. However, due to differences in computer screens, updates to edits and certain other variations, the images here should only to be taken as a guide. Rest assured, the colour, sharpness and overall quality of a finished Lost Collective print will always be far superior to what can be presented on a screen. Every artwork is individually printed to order and inspected thoroughly to ensure the highest standards of quality are maintained.
We offer both limited and open edition artworks in the Lost Collective Shop. Limited edition prints have a set number of copies which will be made available for purchase. The number of editions made available is outlined on the individual product information pages. Once this total number is reached in any combination of either framed, unframed or glass prints, that image will no longer be available for purchase. Open edition prints have no limit to the number of times the image can be reproduced as a print. Note: Acrylic blocks do not contribute to the edition count and are available as open runs for any image in the Lost Collective Shop.
Framed and Unframed Prints
Framed and unframed prints are printed on Hahnemuhle 100% Cotton Rag using Epson Ultrachrome inks for maximum stability. The image is surrounded by a white border which is signed, titled and dated personally by Brett in the case of limited edition. When framed, the border will remain partly visible to show these limited edition markings. In the case of open edition prints, the matte will slightly overlap the image, leaving no visible border from the print itself. Cotton rag prints are mounted on acid-free boards with a matte overlay and pushed all the way to the front of the frame, and flush against the back side of the glass. Lost Collective offers simple raw, white or black outer frames, made using sustainable plantation timber to the highest standard of workmanship. When cared for properly, the finished product will last a lifetime.
Glass prints are the most vibrant and modern method of display. The finished result gives black shades a more pronounced appearance with an increased colour gamut, giving a vibrant and luminous finish that almost looks like a 3-D picture. The concealed mounting system allows the print to appear as though it floats approximately 20mm off the wall surface. The process involves printing the image to a high gloss, fine art archival, quality paper, which is then face-mounted directly to the rear side of the glass surface using an optical adhesive. This process completely seals the print from atmospheric contaminants and protects it from humidity and UV rays. We use toughened, 6mm thick, bevelled edge glass for face mounting. The glass has a low iron content which provides maximum optical clarity. Glass prints are supplied with a split mounting batten attached to the rear of the print. We ship your print with the required screws, fixings and instructions to easily mount your print on any wall surface. No part of the mounting system is visible once your print is installed on the wall. Your Lost collective glass print will be free from fading for at least 100 years if cared for properly.
Acrylic blocks have an almost identical production process that of glass prints, although these are designed to be displayed as a feature piece on a desk or shelf and as such, does not require a mounting system. These small, freestanding acrylic blocks measure 20cm X 30cm X 3cm. Acrylic blocks also come packaged in an elegant display box which makes them the perfect gift.
