Description

The roundel is an essential design detail found on every military aircraft around the world. The first country to use a roundel was the French in 1912. By the beginning of WWI, every other nation involved in combat developed their own insignia to minimize the chance their aircraft would be shot down by friendly fire. The designs were very simple, allowing aviators to spot and identify aircraft quickly at high speeds.

The inspiration behind our USAAF Riveted Roundel Art Print

The United States Army Air Force (USAAF) developed their roundel design when they entered WWI in 1917. Today the design is essentially identical, however, over the decades the proportions of the star and bars have changed slightly. This print design features the USAAF roundel flown by the American forces during WWII. I chose a worn fuselage backdrop because it evoked the notion of battle-tested aircraft.

This design not only appeals to my love of aviation but inspires pride in the early pioneers of military flight and combat heroes. It's perfect for any military aviation buff or collector of vintage-inspired art.

Actual appearance versus Website appearance

When you view our prints online, they can look different on each computer, tablet or phone you view them from. Technology differences are beyond our control, meaning we cannot absolutely guarantee what you view online and what you receive will appear exactly as you expected. 

Framing
PLEASE NOTE: Frames are NOT sold separately (only purchased WITH prints)

Framing made easy (and affordable)

We hear it all the time... people love to buy art but often decide against it because the cost of framing is an extra expensive. Not at ManMade Art. We founded our store on the principle that high-quality art should be affordable too. Making art accessible to everyone is a core philosophy that we continue to live by and those principles extend to offering you quality framing at a reasonable price. 

ManMade Art's custom-made, gallery-style frames are made in Canada and include materials 100% sourced from Canadian businesses.


Choose from two designer finishes

We make buying art simple. Some of our prints are uniquely-sized and you may it hard to challenging find a frame that fits. Ordering your items in frames solves that problem AND ensures you unwrap your order ready to hang! Choose from matte black lacquer or laminated driftwood finishes crafted from solid wood material.


Thick acrylic glazing

Each order is framed behind acrylic, also known as 'plexiglass. Using acrylic ensures your order reaches you safely and unbroken. Acrylic has the same, if not higher, optical clarity as glass. And, unlike big-box store frames that typically use paper-thin acrylic, our glazing is 2mm thick—equal to the thickness of standard framing glass or roughly the thickness of two dimes. 


ManMade to Order (and hang)

Every order is installed in its frame with sturdy, rigid framing points and sealed with an acid-free backing sheet that protects your art from infiltrating dust and insects. Combined with a sawtooth hanger and silicone bumpers, your piece will hang perfectly without marking or discolouring your walls.

Pre-inspection before shipping

We stand by our products. Each print and frame is inspected for printing defects or damages as it is packaged for shipping. We will not ship prints or framed art we would not be proud to hang on our walls.  

Damaged in transit

All orders are carefully packaged in sturdy cardboard containers to protect them from the normal rigours of shipping. If your package arrives damaged, please keep the original packaging and send us photos. We'll get a replacement to you, but we can't process a replacement without seeing the damage first.

Every ManMade Art order leaves our studio in packaging custom made for our products, ensuring it arrives in excellent condition. Unfortunately, accidents can happen in transit. If your order arrives damaged, we will replace it. We only ask that you provide photos of the packaging and item damages so we can assess what happened during shipping. 

Shipping policy and terms

Please double-check your shipping address and ensure it can be received at your specified address (residence or business). If, for some reason, delivery is denied to the correct address, fear not, we will help you find your order. If we give the shipper the wrong delivery address, we will pay for any extra shipping charges associated with the error. If it is hopelessly lost for reasons beyond our control, unfortunately, we'll have to share the new shipping costs based on our standard rates. Repeat free shipping is a one-time offer not available in these situations.
