Archival Pigment Prints / Giclée Prints
Archival pigments prints combine 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.
These prints are sometimes referred to as archival inkjet or Giclée prints.
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 any length.
Cross Process / Silkscreen
We can also silkscreen directly over digital prints with a varity of special inks and finishes including:
• Mid to high gloss varnish
• Glitters + sparkles
• Gold and precious metal leaf
• Diamond dust
Please feel free to contact us for more information about incorporating the silkscreen process with digital prints.
We stock a range of high quality fine art and photographic papers from St Cutherts Mill (Somerset range) and Hahnemühle.
We are happy 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.
Prints can either receive a straight cut edge or hand torn edge to finish.
We have a simple pricing system across all our papers. Prints can be made on demand, one at a time, or in larger runs.
An optional proofing and pre-press service is available to ensure an accurate reproduction of an artwork. Soft-proofs can be made and reviewed, along with a full-scale proof. Once this has been done for an artwork these settings can be recalled anytime.
Postage and packing fees will apply. Please feel free to contact us by telephone or email for a formal estimate.
