Our services include Giclée printing, one to one studio sessions, digital image editing and scanning from original artworks.

Giclée Printing Service

Files can be sent to us through a transfer site, such as wetransfer.com, or brought to the studio. The printing service includes us checking the files, and contacting you if we see any potential quality issues. We can also do any basic editing such as resizing or adding a border. Printing can be done straight from large files, using one of two printers:

The Epson SureColor SC-P9500 (44-inch) has been developed for photographers and artists, and offers an exceptionally wide colour gamut. The HP Z3200 (44-inch) creates exhibition quality prints with stunning colour and exceptional blacks.

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 £40 per hour. Please call 01424 427392 or email [email protected] for an appointment.

The Studio Service is currently unavailable due to COVID-19

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 [email protected] to discuss your editing requirements.

Scanning Service

We can do professional scans of original artworks up to A2 size. We also scan from transparencies, 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, ensuring sharp and accurate full reproduction of the widest range of colours, even in shadow areas. In addition, the high 2400 x 4800dpi resolution captures even the tiniest details with exceptional clarity.
