LoxleyLoxley Colour Announce New Fine Art Wraps

Loxley Colour's new range of Fine Art Wraps offer absolute perfection using the latest premium fine art printing techniques.

The Fine Art Wraps are produced using the latest 12 ink technology printers. The permanence of the inks combined with the UV laminate give reliable, consistent results, print after print. They are available in two options - white cotton Canvas or Photo finish and come in 35mm or 50mm depths.

All wraps are mounted on board and wrapped round a wooden framework to eliminate bowing and damage due to mishandling - unlike traditional stretched images. The Fine Art Wraps are beautifully finished with the corners folded, ensuring that the wooden framework cannot be seen from the sides.

You can design your Wrap with a full image wraparound or with a coloured border as shown. Each Fine Art Wrap comes with a fixing attached and is delivered in a presentation box ready to hand over to your client.

Whatever your choice of Wrap, Loxley Colour are convinced that this range of wall mounted products will create endless opportunities for your clientele.
