Can I have my print dedicated?
Yes. Michael can write a simple dedication ("For John", or "Happy Birthday John") on your cartoon print if you wish. When you order a print through the online shop, there is a dedication box. Dedications are written under the image in pencil, unless you specify otherwise. All prints are signed by Michael.
Does the print size include a white border around the image?
Yes. When you order a print (A4, A3, A2 or A1) it refers to the paper size the image is printed on. The printed image will be slightly smaller than your ordered size, as the white border allows for framing, Michael's signature and a dedication (if you would like it). The Example print images in the online shop are small examples of what your print will look like, you can see the ratio of white border to printed image here.
Can I order an A1 print?
Yes. Simply send us an email. A1 prints are $220 including registered postage.
