ART OF PRINT
Giclée printing: Archival fine art and photographic digital inkjet (Giclée) large format printmaking including canvases.
Reproduction: Specialist in photographic reproduction of original artworks, textiles and photographs. As an alternative to scanning, high resolution photography using dedicated lighting gives highly accurate colour reproduction. This technique also allows for complete removal of shadows (if desired) and reflections from textured or varnished artworks, such as oil paintings. It is even possible to photograph through glass, without removing the image from its frame. The camera and lighting set up is portable allowing photography to be undertaken on-site at the artist’s studio, gallery, home etc.
Image editing: Alteration, manipulation, repair, restoration and enhancement of imperfect, dirty or damaged images such as photographs & paintings. Stitching of panoramic images. Photo poster collages and montages.
Toning: Sepia (and other colour) toning of black and white images. Hand colouring of black and white photographs. Colour correction of faded images and those with strong colour casts.
Digitising: Scanning (or photographing) and copying of negatives, slides, photos, prints, artworks, legal documents etc. Provided on CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, memory stick or via email / file share.
Profiling: Colour management and calibration of digital cameras, computer monitors and printers.
Cleaning: Of digital cameras, sensors and lenses.

To achieve the best possible quality of print we use only archival standard papers and genuine Epson archival pigment inks, as well as using a fully colour-managed workflow with custom profiles for faithful colour reproduction. All of the papers available achieve an excellent range of colours and deep blacks. Our experienced Fine art printmaker will be able to advise you on which papers are best suited for your artwork or photograph.
We specialise in photographic reproduction of artworks such as paintings, drawings etc., documents such as legal deeds and other two-dimensional media. As an alternative to scanning, photography with a dedicated lighting set up allows for incredibly accurate colour, the complete removal of shadows (if desired) from heavily textured pieces and also the removal of reflections from shiny and varnished surfaces. We also offer a specialist photographic reproduction service to textile artists which includes the application of lighting to deliberately bring out specific texture and shadow on pieces that are three dimensional or raised up from the background, enhancing the appearance of three dimensionality in the finished print and altering the lighting to accentuate (or diminish) shiny and reflective elements in the piece.
