Often referred to as either giclée prints or archival pigment prints, this method combines the use of pigment inks and high quality papers, as well as expertise within digital reproduction to produce prints on paper that are fully archival up to 200 years.
We utilise 44" and 64" 10 colour Epson SC-P10000 and SC-P20000 printers and Epson Ultrachrome PRO inks that produce incredible tonal graduations and are capable of a wide colour gamut.
We can print up to 1600mm wide by almost length.
Prints can either receive a straight cut or hand torn edge to finish.
We utilise a range of high quality fine art papers from Hahnemühle and St Cuthberts Mill:
- Hahnemühle Photo Rag
- Hahnemühle Photo Rag Pearl
- Hahnemühle Photo Rag Ultra Smooth
- Hahnemühle Museum Etching
- Hahnemühle German Etching
- Somerset Photo Satin
- Somerset Enhanced Velvet
- Somerset Enhanced Satin
We are able to advise which paper will best suit an artwork. From soft matte and textured velvet papers to glossy photo papers, there is a right choice for any artwork.
Printing a small strip of your artwork to confirm you are happy is included in the price, this is often referred to as soft-proofing.
This stage is important to confirm colours, fidelity and paper choice.
With larger quantities, we are happy to print a full-scale proof as well as soft-proofs. When incorporating silkscreen printing over digital prints, a full-scale proof is also advised.

For digital prints our turnaround time is 1-3 working days until delivery. This is subject to submission of final artwork, proofing and payment.
If you require digital prints sooner, please feel free to get in touch as we are happy to discuss your requirements.
Our ideal file specifications are below:

- Scaled at intended print size
- 8 BIT / 16 BIT (for wide gamut)

File formats, resolution and colour profiles can often be confusing, if you have any questions we are more than happy to guide you on how best to deliver an artwork for digital reproduction. We can also facilitate for an artwork to be scanned or photographed.
POSTAGE + PACKING
Each print is inspected and trimmed by hand, this is referred to as the 'finishing' process. Prints can either be shipped flat or rolled in a tube and are always interleaved and protected with PH neutral packing materials.
Please feel free to get in touch and confirm a price for finishing, packing and postage. All prints, flat or rolled, are shipped via a tracked service (UPS).
We can also 'drop ship' straight to your customers.
