A Question of KWA: So what does "Just the Print" really mean on the "Wall Art" page? Is it really just the print rolled up in a tube shipped to my selected destination or is there more to it than that? Is there anything else I should know?
An Answer by KWA: "Just the Print" means the exquisite KWA still frame image of your choice meticulously color corrected for a perfect presentation on our chosen print medium and ink (Photographic Cotton Rag Baryta by Hahnemühle® and Epson UltraChrome Professional Ink). Once printed your piece is allowed to cure and is then coated with a very special print protectant that both protects and improves the presentation of your chosen image.
Your piece is then Authenticated and Registered to you using Hahnemühle's Artwork Protection Hologram System ensuring clear and undisputed provenance. These processes combined enable you to obtain a lifetime of value from your investments with us.

Hologram System and Certificates of Authenticity
The Hahnemühle Certificate of Authenticity was designed to protect the security and genuineness of your limited edition art works and reproductions on Hahnemühle paper and to reduce the risk of forgery.
Each certificate is made of premium deckle edged mould made paper with a Hahnemühle watermark and fluorescent security fibres. A serialized numbered hologram is added to each certificate and a second, identically numbered hologram is then be applied to the reverse side of the artwork. Each unique copy is then registered on www.myartregistry.com.
The combination of certificate and hologram ensures that each Certificate of Authenticity relates to your particular piece.
