Benefits of our giclee printing services

01

Client involvement.

Our aim is to fully involve you in the giclee printing process. Also, we do not use automated software or shopping carts. This means each print is setup by a trained and qualified fine art technician. Thus, we get the best out of your work.
02

Editing included.

There are no setup costs for supplied images and also when using our own scanning. Moreover, we can resize, crop, make tonal corrections. Also we offer basic retouching to prepare for a print ready format. Furthermore, this is included in all our giclée printing services. This is because we strive for the best service as standard, not as an added extra.
03

Image checking.

Each image is checked to ensure the results are of a high standard. If you are sending us digital files for printing, we also include in our process this free image check. Also we always review the resolution, sharpness as well as tone. In addition we can advise you on image suitability to ensure the best results. We make changes where necessary, with your help.
04

Quality control.

Each giclee print is quality checked before despatch. Then they are wrapped securely for postage in acid-free tissue paper and at all times handled by cotton gloves. We adhere to a highly professional workflow.
05

Finest quality print.

Our printers, inks and paper offer the best giclee printing technology currently available. In particular, we use the latest Epson SureColor large format printers. These use ten colour, wide gamut UltraChrome HDX lightfast pigment inks. Also this is combined with museum grade digital fine art papers by Hahnemühle. Also we print at up to 2880 dpi for the sharpest possible results with the richest colours.
06

Archival to museum standards.

Our wide choice of acid-free papers and lightfast pigment inks ensure that all our giclee printing is fine art gallery quality.
07

Print on demand.

There’s no need to produce a large number of copies. Therefore we offer a print on demand service. Prints can be delivered to your door, collected, or sent to your customers.

The Hahnemühle Digital Fine Art Collection

We currently stock what we feel is the finest paper available for giclee printing. This is due to the archival qualities, print fidelity and variety of papers available in the Hahnemühle collection. Also, the following papers offer a comprehensive choice:–

William Turner, 310 gsm

This paper is simply exceptional for watercolours, drawings and other work and is our most popular choice. Also it has a beautiful textured surface and is a Natural white, with 100% rag content. With a mean pH value of 7, it has excellent archival qualities.

Photo Rag ®, 308 gsm

A whiter, smoother surface lends particularly well to digital art and drawing and has a 100% rag content. We have also found that oils or acrylic work reproduces brilliantly on this paper if the original painting is on board or canvas.

German Etching ®, 310 gsm

Similar in tone to William Turner, it has a slightly smoother surface, is equally acid free and also mould made. As well as very suitable for a variety of print editions including fine detailed work, graphite drawings and pastels.

Museum Etching, 350 gsm

This paper offers the luxurious texture of a traditional etching board and a natural white point. Also an ideal medium for images with soft tints or fine grey nuances as well as more saturated reproduction prints. The extra heavy grammage also increases its appeal.

Bamboo, 290 gsm

The world’s first digital fine art inkjet paper made from bamboo fibres. Bamboo represents spirituality, naturalness and resource-saving paper production. Particularly suitable for botanical paintings and monochrome artworks. Bamboo really highlights the sensuality of images.

Other papers available

We can access the entire range of paper from the Hahnemühle Collection. Other papers include Photo Rag ® Barya, Fine Art Pearl, Photo Silk Baryta and Fine Art Baryta. We also regularly print with Photo Rag ® Bright White and Photo Rag ® Ultra Smooth.
