Stereohype's Fine Art Giclée Prints are printed on super-elegant Hahnemühle German Etching Textured 310gsm. This is one of Hahnemühle's genuine artist papers, mould made, 100% acid free paper with an exceptionally smooth surface. This velvety heavyweight etching board has a fine surface texture. German Etching is one of the most popular media for artwork and photography. The paper is made of 100% cotton or pure alpha cellulose presenting a textured surface that allows high quality printing. Artworks are printed with archival inks – a ten colour ink set including orange and greens for vivid and long-lasting results.

‘Through route in urban areas’ sign. 1957 revision of the 1933/1944 regulations.
This artwork is one of four badge designs featuring details of direction signs on British roads. Phil Baines has long been fascinated by this subject and has written about aspects of it in Eye magazine and other publications.
Phil Baines’ practice has several strands but includes print work for leading publishers and arts organisations notably Matt’s Gallery; lettering for memorials including the 7 July 2005 Bombings Memorial in London’s Hyde Park; and the rebranding and exhibition design of Ditchling Museum of Art & Craft. Somehow he combines this with teaching at Central Saint Martins, UAL where he is Professor of Typography, and curates the Central Lettering Record with Catherine Dixon with whom he also wrote Signs, lettering in the environment, (2003).

Button Badge Motif Print Series features selected designs from Stereohype's ever-growing one inch (25mm) button badge collection. The circular artworks are enlarged to seven inch (178mm) and printed on a beautifully textured paper (portrait, 8" x 10" / 203mm x 254mm). The print series already includes over 300 artworks and will further grow to be as rich and versatile as Stereohype's widely-acclaimed button badge collection. The badge collection already features over 1,500 artworks by over 500 established and emerging illustrators, graphic designers, typographers, photographers and artists from around the world. Some of Stereohype's button badge motifs are clearly better suited to be enlarged and featured on a print than others, but many hundreds of designs will make amazing print motifs. More prints are regularly added to this only recently launched Stereohype range. Each print comes with the according button badge. We also have an optional custom frame for Button Badge Motif Prints (as seen in previews). This wooden high quality custom frame is built with a matt, white 'small alpha' frame made by our local London, Clerkenwell framer. Frame is made on demand.
