Fine Art Giclee printing
With more than 20 years experience producing a variety of limited edition and one-off prints, we have a great deal to offer artists and photographers. Whereby every effort is made to produce the best result possible; an absolute precise replica is impossible – but with one or two proofs and careful colour correction we can get very close…
There are many archival paper types, we currently stock papers from the Hahnemühle and St Cuthbert’s Mills. Please let us know of any specific paper requirement you may have.
Genuine archival quality inks are also used to provide a 100 year colour fast guarantee – subject of course to the conditions in which the print is displayed.
The process also produces wonderful canvasses which once stretched (they can also be varnished; we can advise you on this) are a very faithful reproduction. – click here for more information.

If you send us a transparency or photograph, we will have to scan it for digital reproduction. This also applies to original artwork that is flexible enough to be scanned. Scanning costs are one-off charges, you will only have to pay them once, and are dependent on the size of the original and the size you require it printed. There are also discounts for scanning multiple images, so it’s best to contact us with your specific requirements.
If you have a non-flexible original, perhaps a painting that is already framed, or multiple originals to scan in at one time, we can suggest a digital photographer who will capture the images for us to work with.
If at all possible, we would like to have the original artwork for comparison and accuracy of colour matching.
If you send us your images on disc, or via the cloud, there are no initial costs additional to the standard set-up charge. Ideally your images should be 300dpi at the size you require them printed, and in the RGB colour space for best reproduction.
We automatically archive any image we receive or scan on your behalf at no extra cost. The digital image is then available to you at any time for further prints, on your website or as emails.
