Ocean Companions Art Print
The annual whale migration is here! Did you know? The majority of humpbacks in Australian waters migrate north from June to August, and back towards the Southern Ocean from September to November. Humpback whales migrate around 5000km on average, one of the longest migratory journeys of any mammal on Earth.

We pride ourselves on the quality of our craftsmanship and use only the best materials for every stage of the production process. Our made-to-order framed artworks are handled and produced by qualified framers here in Australia.
The dimensions shown on our website are measurements of the physical print with the white border. Once framed, an additional 1.5cm is added to each side of the print.
Our small frames are made from engineered, sustainably sourced plantation timber. We frame your print using a 2mm thick clear glass panel and a solid 3mm MDF backing. Small oak frames' colour and grains may differ from larger sizes. Please get in touch with us if you wish to purchase a mix of frame sizes.
Our medium, large and extra-large frames are made from solid, sustainably sourced plantation timber that is slightly thicker to ensure structural integrity at larger dimensions. We use shatter-proof acrylic glass and a solid 3mm adhesive MDF backing to frame and protect your print.
All of our framed artworks come ready to hang. Hanging fitting on the backs of frames are as below.
- Small size frames: 2x metal sawtooth hangers for vertical and horizontal orientation.
- Medium, large and extra-large size frames: D-rings and metal wire hanger.

Printed with the latest eco-solvent technology on high-end canvas material for outstanding photographic print quality and durability. Our canvas prints are professionally stretched and come ready to hang. Canvas prints are a great option if you are going after that edge-to-edge appearance.
Each canvas is evenly coated with a layer of Aquathane-UV liquid laminate to ensure prints are fade-resistant, durable and easy to clean.
We use a satin blend to give your canvas sufficient protection without being flat and dull or overly polished and reflective.
