Stradbroke the Whale Shark - Canvas Print
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.

Shipping at SEA
We take delivery seriously around here.
Your order will be printed and carefully backed up us at SEA and sent to you via Australia Post.
We visit our local Australia Post Office weekly on Friday. All attempts are made to ensure we post more frequently if possible.
Larger items will be sent via Courier. Pickup times vary using our courier service.
Our small prints are neatly packaged in their own rigid flat mailer (which are 100% recyclable, yay!).
Larger prints are carefully rolled and shipped in tough mailing tubes.
All prints are carefully wrapped and/or rolled in acid free tissue paper.
Backing boards are used on flat postage to ensure that corners do not get damaged in transit.
*Please note: We are based in Port Douglas, which is a regional area.
Next day delivery is not an option for postage from our location. We have been shipping items for years, with different suppliers and have found that Australia Post, standard shipping is the sweet spot for cost & timely service.
Parcels usually take up to 5 business days within Queensland and at least 2 weeks when shipping interstate.
Rest assured, we do everything we can to ensure you receive your artwork or giftware in a timely manner. Your parcel's shipping time is ultimately out of our control (sorry... we don't run a freight company and don't make the rules).
Free shipping is offered on orders over $100.
Orders under $100 will incur a small postage fee of $10.
We have made this decision as we can no longer rely on untracked postage services. They are simply too un-reliable and un-predictable.
International shipping incurs a $25 AUD fee. This includes tracking your package via Australia Post.
Our listed freight charges for international shipping do not cover framed or stretched artworks. Please contact us directly for a quote on framed artwork.
