How do you create your prints?
All our prints are created by our in-house team at the MinaLima print facility: The Art Printorium. We print on high-end digital printers on 100% cotton rag paper, using long-lasting, archival pigment inks. For our Wizarding World Premium Collections, we add gold, silver or colour foils by hand to imitate the original graphic prop from the films.
What’s the difference between Premium and Standard prints?
Premium prints are a limited edition of 250. Each print is often embellished with gold, silver or colour foil, comes with a Certificate of Authenticity and is numbered, embossed and signed by Miraphora and Eduardo. Standard prints are a limited edition of 1000. Each print comes with a Certificate of Authenticity and is numbered, embossed and signature-stamped.
What is an edition?
An edition is a limited run of an artwork which is made up of a set number of prints in a set number of sizes. Once they’ve gone, they’ve gone!
What is a Certificate of Authenticity?
It’s a document that includes the artwork title, its provenance and edition number. It shows it’s the genuine article. We recommend always keeping this with your print, even once framed.
Why are some Wizarding World prints available in just one size, and others in three sizes?
We reproduce artworks as close as possible to the size they appeared in the films. Sometimes this means we can offer different sizes, if there were different sizes in the films (e.g. posters, packaging designs)
Do your actual prints look exactly like the ones online?
We work on specially calibrated screens. Every artwork we print looks just like it appears on our screens. But all screens are different. This means colours and tones of actual prints could look different to what you see on your screen. Apart from colour and tone, they’ll be exactly the same.
Is paper size and image size the same?
No. We have three standard paper sizes, and the image sizes vary according to the artwork. This means that all prints will have a white border. You can find the dimensions of the actual image size in the product description section on each product page.
