Our catalogue is stocked with the highest museum-grade quality fine art papers. Every option is acid-free, fully archival and specially coated.

Our workhorses are Epson large format printers: a 44” 9900 and a 24” 7070. They’re managed by Serendipity Megarip, a high-level colour management system that ensures consistency and colour fidelity. With these assets (and considerable experience harnessing them), we produce fine art prints with an exceptional colour gamut. In other words, your prints will have all the tonalities and hues of the original artwork.

Our equipment

Both of our Epson printers take Ultrachrome K3 inks: pigment inks capable of producing the widest tonal range in digital printing. Our ICC profiles are created by Les Walkling and are customised to our selection of papers from Hahnemühle, Canson and Awagami. All three brands are renowned for their high-end archival fine art papers. We use calibrated Eizo monitors, state of the art display monitors for photography, post-production and graphics.
