Stradbroke the Whale Shark - Canvas Print
Free Shipping on orders over $100 | Shipping included on framed artwork
Whale Shark Canvas Print
Everywhere we went diving there seemed to have just been a whale shark sighting.
We spent a day searching the waters off Stradbroke Island for one such elusive creature but to no avail.
I suppose that is the nature of the sea though, you never know what you’re going to get when you stick your head under.
Each original artwork has been professional imaged to ensure all details remain as close as possible to the original painting.
- Each limited edition giclée print is hand signed by Stephanie and numbered out of 100.
- Printed onto high quality 380gsm poly-cotton canvas using archival pigment inks.
- Canvas prints are triple varnished using archival products to ensure your print is protected from the elements & colour fading.
- A 50mm mirrored edge or white border will be added to the print to ensure there is adequate room for stretching the artwork around bars.
Canvas vs Paper Prints
Printing large pieces onto canvas is a great way to avoid reflections on your artwork. Allowing you to place your large print in a more prominent place in your home.
The Printing Process
All of our canvas prints are produced to order. We are reproducing a piece of art & as such require time to ensure your print is perfect. To ensure longevity of your print, we allow at minimum 24 hours for your print to dry before varnishing the artwork.
Want to take the stress out of hanging your artwork?
We can arrange for our local Port Douglas framer to stretch your canvas around bars.
Australian Oak Floating Frame
We frame all of our artwork in Australian Oak with a shadow border. This modern style of framing leaves a small gap between the artwork & the frame. Adding a frame to your artwork finishes it off, adding the icing to the cake.
How long will framing take?
It can take a couple of weeks to have your artwork framed here in Port Douglas.
Times will vary depending on supply of materials & how busy our framer is.
When your artwork is ready at the framer, we will arrange for it to be sent with our next courier run.
When removing your prints from the post please ensure you take extra special care. We ensure the upmost care is taken to get our work to you safely and securely. If you have any issues with your delivery, please contact us as soon as possible so that we can help make it right.
Fine Art Prints
All of Stephanie's limited edition prints are produced using archival standard paper & canvas with 12 pigment inks on our very own wide format Canon Pro Series printers.
Each print is hand signed and numbered out of 100 by Stephanie Elizabeth.
Stephanie Elizabeth's fine art paper prints are produced on a 315gsm Bright White Natural Textured Paper; giving a stunning artistic making each and every print look as close as possible to the original artwork.
Canvas prints are created using a 392gsm Matte canvas. The matte finish gives a more artistic look to these larger pieces, with a subtle softness to the image.

Framing at SEA
How do we frame our paper prints?
All of our frames are made from Australian Oak. Our framed artworks are sealed on the rear with framing tape and coreflute to ensure that excess moisture cannot enter the artwork.
Our A4, A3 & A2 frames are set behind glass, with a white matte board. A1 frames are also set behind a matte board, however we use perspex instead of glass for this size, as we've found glass sheets this size are damaged too easily.
Australian oak paper print sizes
A4 - 31.5cm x 39cm
A3 - 39cm x 51cm
A2 - 50.5cm x 67.5cm
A1 - 66cm x 90cm
Please note: All of our frames are handmade, they can vary slightly from time to time, the above are rough guide.
Framing Canvas Prints
Our canvas prints come with a border so that they are able to be stretched over wooden bars. The only other way to mount a canvas is to frame it behind glass, which defeats the purpose of getting a canvas print.
Stretched canvas prints will be the same size as the print you ordered.
Our shadow box frames add 2cm to each size of the print, so a total of 4cm on top of the print. Eg. A 70cm x 100cm Canvas print stretched & framed in a Shadow Oak frame will be 74cm x 104cm.
