Reckonnect is part of the Reckonize Art group of imaging and
photography companies, a small team of photographers and graphic
designers based in South London who mainly carry out work on a
commission basis, but are actively engaged in imaging and pop-art,
as well as photography.

The work is scanned to computer, and the digital image is printed
to canvas using the Giclee process. Whilst in its digitized state
the opportunity will be taken to tidy up any obvious brush marks
and imperfections, and the artist may carry out further touch
ups using customized brushes in Adobe Photoshop. We are aiming
for a very manufactured look that will stand close scrutiny whilst
creating a tangible change in atmosphere within your living environment...

Materials and Quality
Each image is digitally printed using Ultrachrome inks with a
light fastness of 75+ years enabling us to give our customers
a lifetime guarantee against fading. We use a photo quality polycotton
canvas of 365gm weight, not 100% cotton, in order to achieve a
brighter white and to avoid the inevitable surface imperfections
associated with a 100% natural material. The printed image is
then protected with matte varnish to prevent scratches, dust adhesion,
and moisture absorption thereby prolonging colour vibrancy and
preventing cracking later on. The canvas is then stretched over
a hand-made solid wood 30mm deep frame, complete with backing
board to prevent sagging over time.

panels (for added strength)
These are not fragile pictures, you can kick a football against
our prints and they will survive (not that we are recommending
this you understand). The print is allowed to stand for 24 hours
to allow any final settlement, stretching and drying and then
the canvas has its final fixings to the rear of the frame. The
picture will seamlessly wrap round the frame and will be ready
to hang straight from the box when you take delivery.
The Final Product
The canvas image you will receive will be a durable, high quality
high contrast conversation piece from the day of delivery. The
bottom line with our images is that they are directed towards
making an exceptionally bold impact on your living/working space
ensuring maximum bang for your buck. We are deliberately avoiding
scenes over used elsewhere, and our limited print runs will give
you an exclusive product. You are more likely to meet a lottery
winner than see one of our images twice!
Another batch awaiting packaging
The complete picture is guaranteed against defects and ageing,
we are that confident of our materials and workmanship. Simply
keep a record of this transaction and in the event of fading/warping/cracking
we will issue a refund/replacement, whichever you prefer.
There are bound to be colour differences between the printed
image and the picture you see on your computer screen, and we
ask you to take this into account when purchasing. To minimize
the risk to the customer, however, we will refund the purchase
price (less postage) in the event of dissatisfaction.
