We offer professional, museum quality prints for artists, photographers, businesses, and the general public.

All prints are produced using our Epson Surecolour giclée professional printers at an extremely high definition 2,880 dpi using lightfast pigmented inks. All image formats are supported and the higher the image resolution, the better.

All of the intricate fine detail of the original artwork is accurately reproduced and the quality is absolutely superb.

Note that prints should either be framed behind glass, varnished or laminated for resilience.

Where a specific intermediate size is required, order the higher size and specify the exact size required whilst ordering.

Unframed Prints:

The size listed is the media size.

The image will be printed as large as possible within the media size without cropping. If a specific image size is required, please mention this whilst ordering.

Ensure that the image size required fits within the media size on both dimensions, allowing for the border on cut sheet media.

Both canvas and paper prints are suitable for adding metal leaf, though canvas tends to work best, especially when sealed to prevent tarnishing and oxidisation.

Paper prints

  • For sizes from A4 to A2, standard cut sheet media is used and there will be a minimum border of 3mm on the shortest side and 8mm on the longest side. This reduces the maximum image size slightly.
  • For sizes above A2 size, roll feed media is used and there is no minimum border.
  • Are suitable for hinge mounting behind a mount and framing behind glass.

Canvas prints

  • Roll feed media is used and there is no minimum border.
  • Are suitable for mounting on board, then trimming to remove the excess canvas border as required
  • Images with a 5cm border are suitable for stretching on bars and the image is extended into the border where possible to facilitate a ‘gallery wrap’ where the image also covers the sides

We stock four types of media

Paper

  • Hahnemuhle German Etching – 310gsm textured white archival quality cotton rag

Stretched Canvas Prints:

Are suitable for hanging either unframed, or framed in a modern tray frame or traditional frame. Following stretching, the canvas is spray varnished for resilience using satin varnish. Matt or gloss varnish are also available at no additional cost.

We offer three types of stretcher bars

  • Gallery Bars – 44mm wide x 44mm deep, which are most suited to hanging unframed and are typically termed ‘Box Canvas’ Prints.
  • Premium Bars – 45mm wide x 20mm deep, which may be hung either unframed, framed in a tray or regular frame and are most suited to larger formats.
  • Standard Bars – 35mm wide x 19mm deep, which may be hung either unframed, framed in a tray or regular frame and are most suited to smaller formats.

For unframed stretched canvas

  • The artwork image is extended around the sides where possible to facilitate a ‘gallery wrap format’ where the image also covers the sides.
  • Adjustable hangers and protection bumpers are fitted to the rear. An alternative of double D rings and hanging string are also available at no additional cost.

Board Mounted Prints:

Are bonded onto board at high temperature in a vacuum hot press to ensure permanent adhesion, extra rigidity and support. They are suitable for hanging either unframed, or framed in a modern tray frame or traditional frame.

We offer four types of board

  • 3mm MDF, which are most suited to framing in either a panel tray or traditional frame
  • 6mm MDF, which are most suited to framing in a panel tray frame at larger sizes and where extra rigidity is required
  • 12mm MDF, which are most suited to hanging unframed at larger sizes and where extra rigidity is required
  • 3mm Aluminium Composite Panel (ACP), which are waterproof hence suitable for damp or wet locations such as bathrooms, kitchens and swimming pools, and most suited to hanging:
    • Unframed on steel wall fixing plates or a rear aluminium subframe for a floating effect
    • Framed in an aluminium panel tray frame

The sides of the board may be coloured in a single colour ink or acrylic paint if required.

Unlaminated Prints

Are suitable for:

  • Framing behind glass in a traditional frame, with a spacer, slip or mount, for a more traditional appearance.
  • Where the artist wishes to add embellishment to the surface.

Laminated Prints

Are waterproof hence glazing is not required and the surface may be dusted and wiped clean as admirers will definitely touch the surface. They are therefore suitable for:

  • Hanging unframed with either the option of panel hanging plates or a rear sub-frame, for a minimalist, modern appearance.
  • Framing in a traditional frame or a panel tray frame without glass.

A satin finish is standard though a gloss or matt finish is available at no additional cost.

Framing:

Stretched print wooden tray frames are 12mm wide up to A2 size and 19mm wide above this, all with a 12mm gap.

Aluminium metal tray frames are available in black, silver and white.

Framed paper prints are double mounted. Single mounts are available at no additional cost.

Glass is 2mm think up to 90cm x 60cm image size and 3mm thick above this.

Resin Prints:

The prints are first board mounted on either 3mm ACP or 6mm MDF, then coated in a clear, non-aging, extremely resilient resin having a high gloss ‘mirror like’ finish.

The surface is waterproof hence glazing is not required and may be dusted and wiped clean.

Hand Embellished Canvas Prints:

Available in loose, stretched and board mounted formats. See details above for further information.

Each print is individually hand embellished using a course haired brush and acrylic to replicate an original with deep textures, then acrylic varnished for resilience.

The surface is waterproof hence glazing is not required and may be dusted and wiped clean as admirers will definitely touch the surface!

A gloss finish is standard though a satin or matt finish is available at no additional cost.

Metal Prints:

These are THE Premium Metal Prints available on the market. The panels are manufactured in the USA to create the highest quality, most luxurious, vibrant and durable print medium in the world, using a dye-sublimation process infused into a polymer coating.

They are lightweight and easily cleanable. Water, fire, chemical and fade resistant.

They are supplied with a rear sub frame, ready to hang.
