If you would like to edition a large run or produce single prints digitally we have just the facility for you.

We use an Epson Stylus Pro 11880 64″ large format printer with Epson UltraChrome K3 archival quality inks which produce exceptional quality on a range of media. We stock textured and smooth fine art papers; gloss and satin finish photo papers; canvas; and acetate/film for photo print processes. Samples are available to look at in the studio. We also run test prints/strips so you can proof colour and paper texture to get exactly what you want. Artwork should be provided at its final size on memory stick, Dropboxed or emailed saved as PSD, TIFF, EPS or PDF format.
