Here's a little more information about how we produce our prints...

With the imagePROGRAF PRO-4100 printer comes Canon's innovative 12-colour LUCIA PRO pigment ink system, which means we achieve superb longevity and durability. The high-density pigments produce prints with an extremely wide colour gamut and the combination of two blacks and two grey inks means that prints have a very smooth graduation between tones and are free of colour casts.

By its very nature, producing beautiful giclée prints is colour-critical, so our machines and screens are calibrated regularly. We use custom ICC profiles with all of our paper-stocks (see below) for supremely accurate results between screen and print.

We currently hold a range of archival paper stocks — all acid- and lignin-free — three of which are created by world-renowned German paper specialist, Hahnemühle.

FineArt Pearl, is a stunning 285gsm celluloid-based paper with a bright white base, giving exceptional colour density and tonal range, with a semi-gloss finish. The subtle gloss, combined with the smooth fibre surface, emulates the timeless qualities of traditional silver-bromide printing — perfect for use as exhibition-ready fine art photographs in both colour and black and white.

We also stock the slightly heavier and extremely popular Photo Rag paper at 308gsm. With a 100% cotton, natural white base, the paper is finished with a specially formulated inkjet coating, giving a velvety-smooth, matt finish — a touch warmer in tone than the FineArt Pearl paper.

And for artists looking to replicate the texture of their original artwork, we offer German Etching, a 310gsm paper which is made using a traditional copperplate mould, producing a lovely, felt-like velvety finish. The texture is similar to that of a watercolour paper and gives an impressive three-dimensional depth and effect.

Alternatively, if you're looking for a slightly more budget-friendly option, we also hold two lovely papers created by Fotospeed, a local print and paper specialist based in Calne, in Wiltshire. Xpressions Matt Smooth, at 300gsm and Xpressions Art Smooth at 200gsm, both of which have a natural white base, are 100% acid-free and should give a life expectancy of over 85 years.

Whether you choose a semi-gloss or matt finish, we are certain that the combination of very high quality inks and superbly-crafted papers will bring as much pleasure to the people viewing the prints, as it does to us producing them.
