Fencing Prints

The Swordsman’s Shop is pleased to offer rare historical fencing prints.
We have specially selected and reproduced a variety of 18th and 19th century prints.

Paper

These distinctive reproductions are printed on 11.7" x 16.5", 10 mil thickness, 192 gram weight, high quality acid free art paper. The actual image sizes are 10.5" x 15.5" for "landscape" (horizontal) images and 10.5" x 14" for "portrait" (vertical) images.

Mats

Our prints do not fit in precut mats with standard size openings. Therefore we offer mats that are custom cut specifically for us. The mat and backing are available for a total of $10.00. For an additional charge of $5.00 we can mount it for you. The print is first mounted on a sturdy backing and then completed by overlaying and attaching the mat to the backing. It is then ready for you to insert into a standard 16" x 20" frame of your choice (not supplied).

Shipping and handling is $6.00 (without matting) and $8.95 (with matting). International shipping and orders of two or more prints please contact us prior to placing your order for shipping charges.
