6. HOLCHESTER DESIGNS
Golden Dahlia Foiled Art Print - £8
SQUARE PRINT 5.8”/14.8CM
380 GSM CARD WITH METALLIC GOLD FOILED DETAILING.
The square print has a very slight gloss to it with gold that pops and it changes ever so slightly throughout the day as it responds to the light around it, highlighting different details as it moves.
It really is the perfect size of artwork for those smaller spaces that need a pop of colour and little bit of luxury – be it at home or at work. And it also makes a fabulous little gift to someone - a great way to let them know you appreciate them without going overboard (either in gesture or budget!).
Each print has a logo label and my signature on the back but is otherwise plain for you to add your message, and it comes wrapped in a glassine envelope before being placed in a board backed envelope.
