The Origins of the Handprint
From ancient cave paintings in France to aboriginal art in Australia, folk art in Africa, and the most contemporary artwork in the West, handprints have been widely used as a medium of artistic expression. Being the most basic form of expressing one’s creativity, they are still regarded today as a powerful symbolic element in art and design.
Any handprint is as unique as the person who owns it. The team at Hand Print Graphics will put all of our creativity, social media savvy and marketing insight into your project - our distinctly hands-on approach - so you can leave your handprint in the marketplace.
