Fine Art Giclee Prints
Giclée printing is used by many museums and art galleries throughout the world for its unique, painterly qualities. Images take on a watercolour-like look, with the texture of the paper helping to add to the overall pleasure of the photo or artwork. Images take on a more matt appearance, with deep blacks, bright whites and more bright pastel-like tones to images.
Due to the way the ink sits on the paper, they appear to have slightly less ‘sharpness’ than a silver halide photo print has, but that is the fine art print’s charm.
This high quality photo printing technique is achieved with a combination of state-of-the-art inkjet heads, placing the finest micro piezo droplets of ink onto a variety of textured fine art, archival grade papers, for colour or black & white images or artwork.
Epson large format printers (LFPs) are used combined with Fuji, Hahnemühle and Permajet papers for all of our fine art photo printing.
Your print will be created on Hahnemühle Premium Paper : German Etching 310gsm. This heavyweight etching board is velvety smooth with a fine surface texture. German Etching is one of the most popular media worldwide for artwork and photography alike. This paper is guaranteed archival standard andmeets the highest industry standards regarding density, colour gamut, colour graduation and image sharpness while preserving the special touch and feel of genuine art paper.
Archival papers are made to a very high standard and will last up to 1000 years in the right conditions. These papers are produced with cellulose fibres from plants other than wood and do not contain lignin (usually cotton or linen). Also, the standard for archival papers (ISO 11108) includes requirements for paper strength, which the standards for permanent papers do not include.
All my artwork is carried out on archival canvas boards and papers, using professional acrylics and watercolours and sealed with archival varnishes.
Many of the prints will be made to order and will come directly from my printer. Please allow between 5 to 10 days for delivery, however generally your print will be with you in around 5 days. Please allow longer for overseas orders and at busy times such as Christmas
