Fine Art Printing & Canvas Printing Service
At Pure Framing I provide a specialist fine art Giclée printing service for customers who require excellent quality from their digital files. Giclée printing is essentially digital inkjet printing using high quality inks on approved museum/archival quality paper. Digital Art printing that I do at Pure Framing includes:
- Fine Art Printing – Limited Edition Print Runs for Artists.
- Photo Art Printing - High resolution photographic prints in full colour or black and white for professional and amateur photographers.
- Canvas Printing - Prints onto canvas for stretching.
Why use Pure Framing Fine Art Printing Service?
Pure Framing's Giclée Printing Services are aimed at limited edition print runs for artists and photographers as well as high quality one-off prints for discerning customers. At Pure Framing I care about quality which is why I participate in the ArtSure scheme, run by the Fine Art Trade Guild.
Print editions registered through ArtSure can easily be identified by the logo and registration number. With that, you can be assured that they have been made using high quality inks and paper. Prints registered under the ArtSure scheme give you independent assurance that quality inks and papers have been used in their production.
At Pure Framing I use a top-quality high resolution large format printer (a Canon ProGraf Pro 2100). This uses twelve ink cartridges to give an accurate and wide ranging colour gamut. I only use original Canon Lucia Inks which give excellent clarity, quality of colour and longevity, along with high quality papers approved by the Fine Art Trade Guild and meeting their exacting ArtSure Scheme standards.
I can print to custom sizes for photographs and fine art editions up to A1 (841mm x 594mm). However, if a white border is required, A1 is the maximum size, so the image would be slightly smaller depending on the width of border required.
For canvas prints, the maximum size I will do for the main image is 680mm x 434mm which allows an 80mm border all round (the amount required to mount the canvas onto stretcher bars). The border can be left black or white, or the image can be wrapped around the bars. If you want to see the whole image on the front of the canvas, the edges can be mirrored and extended into the borders.
Pure Framing also offers a Canvas Stretching and Framing service.
These are all Museum Quality / Archival Quality (i.e. 100% Cotton and / or 100% acid neutral). These Fine Art Papers are all a minimum of 280gsm. Printing from this range adheres to the Fine Art Trade Guild’s ArtSure scheme quality standards. This is ideal for Fine Artists and Professional Photographers or customers who want outstanding one-off or limited-edition prints that will “shout” quality and stand the test of time.
This is available for customers who require nice quality custom size large format printing but are not concerned with the Fine Art Quality paper specifications above. Printing from this cannot qualify for registration under the ArtSure scheme.
If you have a specific requirement for a different type / make of paper then please get in touch to discuss your requirements and I will accommodate wherever possible.
For detailed, large format printing, it is essential that the original digital file supplied by the customer is of the right type and of sufficient resolution for a good reproduction. Files ideally need to be supplied colour corrected and sized ready to print. Our preferred file format is tiff (due to it lossless nature) and these should be at 300 DPI within the Adobe RGB colour space.
This is a guide only, using standard sizes – each job will be priced individually for the customer depending on requirements and the custom size that they require. If the digital file requires manipulation prior to printing (e.g. altering size, resolution etc.) then this is charged pro-rata at £12.50 per 15 minutes or part thereof.
