Digital Services

We are specialist professional fine art and photo printers, based in Greenwich, South East London, a stone’s throw away from Greenwich Market, Cutty Sark and close to Canary Wharf, offering high quality digital fine art and photo printing also known as Giclée printing. Giclée is ideal for high quality, limited edition print runs in large or small format, and to any specification you need.

We offer a variety of professional digital photographic and imaging services ensuring you get the best out of your images. We work with you on your vision and help you achieve the results you want. We strive for a personal, friendly and professional service. Customer satisfaction is our number one goal. We offer a 10% student discount on all our services.

We specialise in large format digital photographic and fine art printing (high quality inkjet printing made with pigment based inks), using the latest EPSON large format printers, especially the SureColor SC-P9000 and the Stylus Pro 9900 making use of the EPSON Ultrachrome HDX and HDR archival pigment inks on a selection of premium quality archival fine art papers, photo papers and canvases at competitive prices. We can print single pages on demand, as and when needed and we don’t ask for minimum orders.

All our fine art papers, photo papers and canvasses are carefully selected and thoroughly tested for maximum choice, offering best quality to the final print. All our prints are produced on colour calibrated equipment with a fully managed colour workflow.

We can also produce Giclée prints from original artworks. The process involves photographing or scanning the artwork producing a high quality digital file that can be colour corrected as required to match the original artwork.

 

High quality archival pigment printing (Giclée) on fine art and photo papers

We print on a variety of papers as well as canvas at up to 44 inches/111.8 cm wide and 40 feet/12 meters long. ISO paper sizes (A and B sizes, A5 / A4 / A3 / A2 / A1 / A0 / B0) are for guide only. All prints are custom printed to your exact size, as and when needed and we don’t ask for minimum orders. We do not charge a setup fee (only if the artworks have been photographed or scanned by us), we do not charge extra for non standard sizes and for sizes not listed we do not charge the same prize as the next size up. Sizes not listed are priced pro-rata by the total square cm required. Prices are calculated based on total paper size, including borders. For large print runs or editions please contact us for a quote.

Files should be delivered at 300 dpi at final print size, saved in AdobeRGB, ProPhoto RGB or sRGB colour spaces. Deliver the file as a flat TIFF, PSD or JPEG. Larger prints are generally fine to print at lower resolution than 300 dpi, with excellent results at resolutions as low as 200 dpi. Resolution higher than 300 dpi might be necessary for small prints with extremely fine detail. Please call us on 0208 858 3076 or email us if you have any questions about file preparation.

Borders are part of the image size so the image must be scaled and placed on a larger canvas if borders are required.

Colour profiles for all our papers are available through us and provide extremely precise soft proofing on calibrated monitors. Please note: these profiles are only for printing on our printers. Please call us on 0208 858 3076 or email us to request any of our profiles.

If you want to upload your files, please use our custom DropBox. After you’ve uploaded your files please send us a quick email or call us on 0208 858 3076 to discuss your requirements.
