Photographers

High resolution giclée ink-jet printing is an excellent choice for photographers wanting to create high quality prints from digital files offering a high degree of lightfastness and archival qualities.

As well as digital files, they can also be produced from all types of film to include: colour, B&W and transparency, in 35mm, 120 and 5X4 formats via our film scanning service.

A full service of film scanning and retouching is available, and please contact us for further information and pricing.

Artists

For artists who create original artwork, the giclée printing is an effective way to reproduce your work to produce limited and open editions of the original.

With the quality of modern pigment inks and a choice of printing medias, the results will replicate the original and will offer a high degree of lightfastness and archival qualities.

We can also assist with the production of the digital file, needed for the reproduction and printing, (if you don't already have one) by scanning or photographing the original via our scanning and copying service.  We will work with you to ensure that the giclée print matches and exhibits the qualities of the original.

UltraChrome K3 Inks

The breakthrough technology of Epson UltraChrome K3 Ink with Vivid Magenta further expands the wide colour gamut and provides accurate colour rendition with virtually no colour twist.  With the addition of newly formulated vivid magenta and vivid light magenta inks, they offer an even broader colour gamut and a dramatically improved range of expression.  The results will last a lifetime and look the same under all light conditions.

Perfect for photography and fine art giclée printing, the nine colour ink set includes: photo black, matte black, light black, light light black, cyan, light cyan, yellow, vivid magenta and vivid light magenta.

Colour quality - high-density pigments create vibrant blues and purples plus accurate, neutral and dark colours

Control over Black and White - three black inks and an advanced Black and White mode ensure total control over the tone and hue of black and white prints. Photo or matte black inks enable printing on high-quality photo and art media

Colour balance - superb, precise grey balance and colour without colour cast
Stability - excellent short-term colour stability and smooth tonal gradation from shadow to light

Consistency - metamerism is eliminated and Epson's Micro Piezo print head means every print will be the same as the first

Lightfastness prints last in display conditions without fading for up to 75 years in colour and over 100 years in black and white
