frequently asked questions

What sizes are the backgrounds available in?

Our backgrounds are supplied as standard 600x900mm ( unless stated otherwise). We also offer custom sizes, please enquire with your specific requirements.

We take great care to represent colours in our online shops as acurately as possible but due to printing limitations the may be some differences.


What makes them so good?

Artisan backgrounds are printed in North Wales and we believe they are the highest quality available – durable, stain resistant, wipeable. Our backgrounds are as matt as the printing process allows.... and the feedback we have received during the development of our backgrounds unanimously said 'the mattest and best available'.

All backgrounds you see in the Artisan Originals section in our shop were created by Olimpia Davies, copied to the highest standard and are printed on a latex material. When choosing the exact material for our backgrounds we opted for the least reflective option, this means the material is a little stiffer and slightly more prone to curling but they can simply be taped down or rolled up the other way to flatten them out.


Do you sell any other backgrounds?

We are looking to introduce a series of backgrounds of different surfaces such as floor boards, stone, metal etc to extend the range and give you more choices...... watch this space

How do I look after my Artisan Background?

Looking after your backgrounds is easy – treat with care, do not use as a cutting surface, do not submerge in water, just simply wipe gently.

Store flat or loosely rolled up in the posting tube.
