Pearl and Earl designer Jacqui Pearce has been creating bespoke prints for people since 2003 and her Award Winning destination style personalised art since 2009.
She has made these destination blinds for many famous (and not so famous) clients over the years... including a grand total of 12 proposals (with her MARRY ME print) - and this year one of her favourites has been for the director of ITV's Downton Abbey for his office .. with DOWNTON as the destination (of course!)
Our art prints and poems are designed in house by Jacqui and are based on her own fond memories and experiences. The London Bus Blinds have become a classic piece of art - and we are proud to have been the first company to offer a bespoke version of these prints. We have won multiple awards for our art prints and they have featured on TV, Style Shows and editorial like Easy Living, Living Etc and Good Homes.

Archival 350gm Matt Paper - A specially coated art card, which produces the best finish with the inks. We generally use matt card depending on the "ping" of colour intensity which we require. Archival papers do not yellow with age.
Giclée' printed in house to fine art standards. Machines need at least an 8 colour mix to achieve this and we do NOT use simple desktop printers.
Frame - 22mm smooth silk finish painted solid wood, cut, glued and fixed to order. Glazed with top grade acrylic - which has 99% clarity, without the health and safety and breakage problems of glass. It actually costs us more! They are pre strapped ready to hang.
Mount - The white core black and snow white thick mounts are cut by hand to fit each piece. With approx 35mm round each edge.
Framing is completed by our local framer who is second to none. He frames for designers like Paul Smith and top London Galleries. Framing can take up to 10 days due to the artisan work involved. NOTE: The framing costs may seem high - but to our mind you get what you pay for! His framing is excellent. You will find cheaper and we are of course happy for you to organise your own framing. Our framing costs include the additional shipping charges involved.
