Creative Project: Make an Oak Framed Print

Bodega Bijou

Let us help you create a fine art Giclee print, framed in a beautiful oak frame, featuring one of your illustrations!



We will help you manufacture ONE oak framed Giclee fine art print on sustainable bamboo paper featuring an original illustration you have supplied. 

Bamboo is a natural, sustainable and envi­ron­men­tally friendly white paper made from 90% bamboo fibres and 10% cotton, resulting in warm-tones without optical brighteners. The paper is acid and Lignin-free, which meets the requirements of an age resistant paper and is printed on pre-cut sheets using an inkjet, 12 colour Giclée print process, providing in-depth reproduction of colours and fine details.


The Print:

  • 290 gsm, 90% bamboo fibres, 10% cotton.
  • Natural white, without optical brighteners.
  • Soft, lightly textured felt structure.
  • Matt premium inkjet coating for outstanding print results.
  • Acid and lignin-free
  • ISO 9706 conform / museum quality for highest age resistance.

The Frame:

  • 21mm solid oak frame.
  • 2mm glass with an MDF backing board.
  • Frame manufactured from high quality solid wood.
  • Sized perfectly for A3.
  • Frame comes complete with hanging fixings.


First of all, please download one of our Photoshop PSD Templates.

If you are making an A4 framed print, download your template HERE.

If you are making an A3 framed print, download your template HERE.

The templates will help you create a design and layout your artwork at the correct size and resolution, so that it is print ready - simply follow the instructions within the template, and save your file as a PNG with a transparent background. Your final image file MUST be at least 300dpi resolution - if the resolution is any lower than this, we simply cannot print it. Please make sure you use our template to ensure your artwork meets the correct image requirements. 

You can draw your illustration using either digital drawing software or working traditionally on paper. Try and make your illustration as bold and striking as possible for the best results.

If you work traditionally on paper, and then scan it, then you need to scale your work to a reasonable size - your image should fill an A4 size sheet of paper, at least. Scan your work at a minimum of 600dpi and save it as a PNG.

When your image is saved as a PNG, return here and upload your illustration (look for “Upload your Image here” on this page, attach your image, and wait for it to upload). Then add this product to the cart, and check out. We will immediately start processing your order, so please double check that you have uploaded the correct file before ordering as we cannot make amendments to uploaded files. You will not be able to check out unless you have first uploaded a PNG.

If you hate technology and this all sounds a bit overwhelming and complicated, don’t worry - alternatively, we can scan your work for you and save it as a PNG so you don’t have to: simply select the SCANNING SERVICE option above the Add to Cart button before you check out. Using this service means you can focus on the design, and when it is complete you can bring it to the gallery, during our normal opening hours, ready to scan. Once you have delivered your artwork to us we will do all the nerdy techie stuff for you while-u-wait and get your sample into production the same day.



After receiving your order and checking that your image files have been created correctly, we will start production on your sample. Production can take between 5-7 working days. When production is complete we will mail you your sample with Royal Mail First Class delivery. Please allow an additional 3 days for delivery.
