Printing Services

Fine Art Printing

At Swansea Fine Art Printing we can print individual prints or limited editions of a print to suit our customer’s needs.

As members of the Fine Art Trade Guild’s, ArtSure scheme all our fine art Giclee prints meet the quality standards for paper, canvas and inks set by this scheme. The Guild’s print quality standards are tried and tested having been established for many years. Inks must score 6 or more on the Blue Wool Scale or its equivalent, under empirical conditions. Papers must have a Ph reading between 7 and 9 and with a minimum weight of 259 gsm.

Though no one can legitimately offer a guarantee that a print will not fade in time, as the quality of framing, specialist glass, hanging away from direct sunlight and humidity can all influence a prints longevity. The standards set by the ArtSure scheme maximise the potential longevity of a print and give customers peace of mind regarding the quality of the prints they purchase.

Fine Art Reproductions

We offer Artists a reproduction service whereby we photograph their paintings and edit the digital file in Photoshop to prepare it for limited edition giclee printing.

The setup costs start from £16 and will vary depending on any additional editing the artist requires. The setup fee of £16 does not include the cost of the first print.

Commercial Prints

We offer two quality photographic papers for standard commercial printing:

  1. Permajet’s Oyster 271 gsm -  This award-winning photo paper is our paper of choice for an oyster/pearl/satin finish.
  2. Epson’s Premium Glossy Photo Paper 250 gsm – This is an excellent paper for customers who prefer a glossy finish.

CANVAS WRAP

We offer a canvas printing and stretching service. The image can either be stretched around the sides of the stretcher bars or we can add two inches all around the image by mirroring the edges so that none of the image is lost on the sides of the canvas. In addition, all our canvases are given a coat of Matt varnish to seal and protect them.
