Giclee Prints

We have been reproducing fine art for over 30 years and work with the artist to ensure the best possible print from the original. Artwork up to 2m x 3m is photographed in our studio under controlled lighting, either digitally or on transparency film. Once the initial image and print have been approved, then repeat prints are identical and can be ordered when they are needed, at prices that will encourage extra sales of your work. The printing files are your copyright, we keep files indefinitely to simplify reordering, but you retain control of every aspect of the edition.


All our papers are archival, acid free and include a 2" border all round as standard

"I have a painting and I'd like some prints from it. How much will it cost?"

Here's a couple of typical examples including VAT

Example 1 - A 10"x12" watercolour original is brought in and needs two copies, printed 12"x16" on a similar style of textured paper:

  • Digital Photography - £20
  • Initial 12"x16" size print, including a 2" border on Artist Watercolour £19.35
  • Subsequent print £12.75
  • (six months later you need a repeat print) £12.75

Example 2 - From a 40" x 60" oil painting, you need a digital copy for a catalogue sent to the printers in Hong Kong and a transparency for your records. The client's daughter has asked for a small copy for herself:

  • Transparency Photography - £35.50
  • Scan at A4 size - £22.00
  • File sent via WeTransfer - £5.00
  • Initial print 12"x16" on 100% cotton rag paper with a 2" border- £26.95

How soon?

We aim to complete most work next day and a couple of days is a luxury for us, but life is never that simple: perhaps you have to stay with a valuable work as security or you have a new painting that must go into the catalogue later today? We always try to fit work to your schedule but ask you to be flexible with times: a rushed job is no one's first choice!
