Printing, Studio, Editing and Scanning Services

Giclée Printing Service
Files can be sent to us through a transfer site, such as wetransfer.com, emailed to us, or brought to the studio. This service includes us checking the file and, if required, doing any basic editing such as resizing or adding a border.

Printing can be done straight from large files using professional equipment, including the Z3200 printer which produces gallery quality prints for creative professionals. The 12 ink printing system produces high quality colour prints with smooth transitions, and the quad-black ink set produces beautiful black and white prints with true gray neutrality. For gloss prints the gloss enhancer produces uniform gloss from highlights to shadows. The embedded spectrophotometer enables exceptional colour accuracy. Ink permanence of more than 200 years is achieved on a range of printing materials.
Studio Service
We can work with you, helping to make decisions about paper, do proofs and any necessary image adjustments. Our printer is an exhibiting Artist, with an MA in Digital Arts, and experience in producing prints for exhibitions across the world.

The Studio Service costs £25 per hour. Please call 01424 427392 or email alex@solarisprint.co.uk for an appointment.
Editing Service
Through our wide-ranging experience in digital art and teaching Adobe Photoshop, we understand the subtlety of image adjustments. Images can be improved for print by adjusting tonal range, colour, reducing noise, and removing unwanted artefacts. If your file is small it's often possible to enlarge it without losing image quality.

Please call 01424 427392 or email alex@solarisprint.co.uk to discuss your editing requirements.
Scanning Service
We can do professional scans of original artworks up to A2 size. We also scan from transparency media, such as positive or negative film and slides.

With the Epson Expression 12000XL Pro's top-of-the-range scanning technology, we can achieve extremely high-quality image reproduction. The optical density of 3.8 DMax and 48-bit colour depth ensure sharp and accurate scanning for full reproduction of the widest range of colours, even in shadow areas. In addition, the high 2400 x 4800dpi resolution and ultra-precise Micro Step Drive technology, enable users to capture even the tiniest details with exceptional clarity.
