Hi all! We were supposed to post this last Tuesday but mum went into labour! My little brother finally arrived Friday 13th and we've been a little occupied since! So, here is our post from last Tuesday:
We have a review for you today from Fulcrum Gallery, an online shop specializing in prints, art and paintings.
Mum and I are MASSIVE art lovers so when we were contacted by the company, we were more than happy to do a review for them.
We picked a colourful pop art French Bulldog piece by Dean Russo. You might remember, we previously posted about a similar piece by the very same artist back in March (Fridays Frenchie Find: Dean Russo Art), so when we saw his work on Fulcrum Gallery's website, it made choosing 'relatively' easy! We just had to go for a Dean Russo piece! And quite obviously, the Frenchie print.
We found the website very easy to navigate around. When you go into their selection of Animal Prints you'll find a 'Dogs & Puppies' category, and it gets better... From there they have sub categories where the prints are listed by popular breeds - even the fabulous 'Bulldog'!(Bulldog is the name for a breed of dog commonly referred to as the English Bulldog. Other Bulldog breeds include the American Bulldog, Old English Bulldog (now extinct), Olde English Bulldogge, and the French Bulldog. The Bulldog is a muscular, heavy dog with a wrinkled face and a distinctive pushed-in nose. The American Kennel Club (AKC), The Kennel Club (UK), and the United Kennel Club (UKC) oversee breeding standards. Bulldogs are the 5th most popular purebreed in the United States in 2013 according to the American Kennel Club -Wikipedia)
Once we browsed through the 51 pages of beautiful Dog & Puppy prints, we narrowed down our choices and made a decision - we did actually end up browsing for hours, umm-ing and ahh-ing between two prints in particular.
Once we'd finally settled on the print we were faced with more choice! We were taken through to another page where we were able to choose between having the print laminated, put on canvas or popped into a frame - which gives more options including frame type, mats and glass type.
This is what we chose for our final product:

We dealt with a lovely lady over emails who was incredibly helpful. The company covered all costs and quickly sorted out unexpected import charges when the package got to our end (Our print came all the way from New Jersey, USA!)
When the postman arrived he handed over a big box, much bigger than we expected! Upon opening we realised this was to protect the framed print as much as possible. It was thoroughly strapped in with padding and all! It worked, as it arrived in perfect condition.
We LOVE our framed print and would happily deal with Fulcrum Gallery again. What's more! They currently have a SALE on, where you can get up to 50% off!
