Pearl and Earl designer Jacqui Pearce has been creating her Award Winning personalised art since 2008. Based on her best selling Words prints - this personalised print is meant to capture the world of a child that you know... but can equally be used to list 'catchphrases' of a grown up too. Her own children have delighted her over the years with their own language of the world around them.. and before they got too old, Jacqui wanted to capture this magical moment in time.
HOW YOU PERSONALISE THIS:
30 x 15cm UNFRAMED **we send it A3 and your printer can crop it to this size or you can keep it as A3 for standard frames
50 x 25cm FRAMED
Our framing work is done by our local talented framer, using either a BLACK or WHITE 22mm frame and hand cut white textured mount. We use Gallery Standard Plexi Acrylic which has 99% clarity and is used by Top Galleries - our framer frames for designers like Paul Smith.
Our prints are Giclee Prints onto Heavyweight Archival Art Card (see our FAQ's for an overview of what this means)
How Long does personalisation and framing take?
Print only is around 14 days and Framing 14 days on top (this is due to demand with our external framers)
How are the prints framed?
Our local framer is second to none. He frames for designers as well as top London Galleries and we are so proud that he has taken on our work and the finish is lovely. He uses top grade smooth finish matt painted wood frames (22-40mm depending on the frame) which is cut, glued and fixed in house. The white core black and snow white thick mounts are cut by hand to fit each piece. They are then finished with top grade acrylic - which has 99% clarity, without the health and safety and breakage problems of glass. It actually costs us more! They are pre strapped ready to hang. This process takes in itself 7 days due to the work log we now have and the handi work involved.
What is a giclee print?
The word "giclée" was created by Jack Duganne, a print maker, he wanted a name for the new type of prints they were producing on a large format high resolution ink-jet printer they had adapted for fine art printing. In the past few years, the word “giclée,” as a fine art term, has come to be associated with prints using fade-resistant, archival inks with multiple colour levels which increase the apparent resolution and color integrity. Basically they are the best digital prints you can buy, and are used in fine art 'reproduction prints'. Machines need at least an 8 colour mix to achieve this and we do NOT use simple desktop printers.
What is a archival paper?
It is a specially coated art card, which produces the best finish with the inks. We generally use either a silk or matt card depending on the "ping" of colour intensity which we require.
Why do you sometimes leave an edge?
On some of our bespoke prints we leave a 5mm edge around the print for handling of the print and also to avoid over saturation of the inks on the card. This can easily be trimmed off by your framer or covered with mounting board.

We were really chuffed with the 'world according to...' print that we ordered for good friends of ours. The ordering system was swift and very straight forward and the finish was exceptional.
The finished print looks great........will def order again.
