Giclée Printing

Giclée Print on textured Fine art paper  – Artist Yana Stajno

Ideal for exhibition prints and limited edition print runs.

An extensive range of fine art papers are available to compliment your image. Selected for base colour, surface texture, weight and ultimately print quality, rich deep blacks are achieved, rich dynamic mid tones and highlights characterised by the base paper colour and texture.

As this is a digital print process your prints will be identical each time they are reproduced. For your convenience we archive your files making repeat ordering trouble free.

Prints can also be enhanced by deckling the edges of the paper, producing a print that looks and feels hand crafted.


 Photographic Printing

Digital baryta papers have similar characteristics to  a traditional wet bromide print.

With the declining choice of traditional darkroom papers digital baryta papers offer an exciting alternative. When prints made in the darkroom are compared next to these prints, the differences are often indistinguishable. This paper not only produces stunning black and white images but also reproduces colour images rich in depth and character.

We also print on resin coated papers, either lustre or gloss. A lower cost alternative that produces excellent print quality similar to C type printing.

Fine art papers can enhance a photographic image by adding a matt finish and texture to the print.


Canvas Printing

We make our canvas prints the traditional way. Quality bespoke length tulip wood stretcher bars, or laminated pine bars form the base of the picture. Larger pictures have cross beams inserted and the canvas is hand stretched. Wedges are fitted into the corners and tapped into place to taughten the stretched canvas.

Museum grade archival canvas is used for it’s critical colour and archival permanence. Without optical brighteners the canvas is perfect as a stable base for working on post printing with acrylic paint or other media. The image can either be wrapped around the edges of the stretchers or flush to the edges.

Finally an optional matt giclée varnish can be applied for added protection.
