Border Terrier print

"Dog Tag" print for border terrier lovers

About this print

Combining hand-drawn letters with illustration in the shape of a dog tag, each one is an original print, individually hand-printed on my press in a blue-green traditional oil based ink inspired by the landscape of the Border Country.

Prints are signed and can be personalised and gift wrapped.

Can I have this print in a custom colour?

This print can be reproduced in your choice of colour as a digital fine art print of archival quality on heavyweight matt, acid-free paper. It's not feasible for me to hand-print custom coloured prints as the time taken to hand-mix inks and set up the press for a single print is prohibitive. Custom colour prints are signed and can also be personalised & gift wrapped.

If you'd like a custom colour, choose your print below and let me know what kind of colour you have in mind in the 'custom colour' box at the checkout. I'll then send you some options to help you choose the right one. Custom prints take around 10 working days after the colour is agreed.

About Border Terriers

These rough ‘tweedy’ coated working terriers hail from the area between England and Scotland, historically known as the Scottish Marches, now called the Border Country. It is a dramatic hilly landscape of sweeping valleys, heather moorland and green forests where 18th century farmers and shepherds, in need of some help to control the local fox and vermin population, started breeding Border Terriers.

With its distinctive head shape like a otter and their ‘salt and pepper’ whiskery faces, the Border has won the hearts of many including the pop star Elton John, the tennis player, Andy Murray, the comedian David Walliams and the chairman of the Kennel Club, Professor Dean, who has 12! They have incredible stamina and are game for any challenge.
