Specialising in archival digital fine art printing.

Using the highest quality materials to achieve unparalleled print quality. Our extensive range of specialist fine art and photographic papers combined with pigment inks ensure not only superlative colour reproduction but also archival permanence.

The fine art papers and canvas we use are not only ideal for creating stunning prints but can also be augmented using a variety of media, from pastels to acrylic paint thus extending the creative possibilities beyond the print itself.

As our paper is supplied from rolls therefore we can print to your exact size requirements. The widest rolls of fine art paper are 1118mm (44 inches) x 12 m (39 ft).  Please note prints are charged by paper size not image size.

As skilled photographers we specialise in photographing your original artwork. The resulting images are processed in our colour corrected working environment and then test printed to achieve the most accurate colour reproduction.


Giclée Printing

Ideal for exhibition prints and limited edition print runs.

We stock an extensive range of fine art papers to compliment your image, selected for base colour, surface texture, weight and ultimately print quality.

The fine art papers act like a sponge to the ink, absorbing it into the fibres of the paper thus producing a rich colour depth. The blacks really are a deep black and the highlight areas defined by the 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.

Digital Baryta papers enable a print with the same weight, depth of colour, white base and tonal range of a traditional wet bromide print from your digital files.

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. The other advantage is that the paper not only produces stunning black and white images but also 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 prints but without the colour depth of a baryta paper.

 


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.
