Paper Choices?

We often have artists and photographers discussing paper choices and what papers are available to use for fine art giclée printing. When working with paper, one needs to consider quality, the coating on the paper and the construction of the paper.

Photo Papers

Choosing a photo paper rather than fine art paper, will give you bolder and more vibrant colours in your image. Which paper you use will give you different results and how you want your image to look will depend on the type of printer, type of ink and of course the type of photo paper. 

Nostalgia - Return To Black & White Days

In the last decade, or even longer, film photography has been making a come back. More and more people are acquiring or digging out their old capture machines to use in our modern, advanced world and although film stocks continue to be discontinued, others are being re-released,  so it certainly isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.

Pricing Your Art

There is no rule on how to price your artwork.  But here are a few different tips to help you make those decisions.

Print Editions

Many years ago, printmaking developed so that artists could make more money from their work by selling multiple copies. It reduced costs and lowered market price compared to a single or unique image. Original art prints were limited as the plate or block got destroyed in the process of printing them and that is why lower numbers are often more valuable. In printmaking, an edition is a number of prints struck from one plate, usually at the same time.

Venues include galleries, public, private spaces, pop ups and street art.

Saving Art

Devastating news last week with the Notre Dame on fire in Paris.  Notre Dame Cathedral is a 850-year-old gothic masterpiece that had been undergoing €6 million restoration work.  The entire wooden interior of the 12th-century landmark was burning and was likely to be destroyed.

Featured on Artists

In this post we thought of featuring two of our customers who have used their art to support communities. Gordon Pembridge, oil painter, wood carver, photographer, etc, as well as Tyler Kennedy Stent, water colour artist and one of our first customers.

“I am an artist, primarily a bird painter, and was lucky enough to have John do some canvas prints and greeting cards for me. The colours are clear and vibrant and the quality is exceptional. I would definitely recommend John for any printing job when you require the best.”

Diane GardinerArtist

“John has been absolutely wonderful! Helping me with whole process of printing my artwork. Having never had prints done before, he helped with everything from the photography of my work, to the most beautiful Giclēe prints. I will now be going back to the drawing board so I can get some more prints done”

Kristin IvillArtist

“I was really impressed with the quality of the prints they had a clarity to them which was pleasing. The colours were vibrant where needed and subtle in the quieter images. The matting was clean and crisp but lighter in weight than I expected. I am used to prints being glued to the back board but that is something to discuss next time.”

Bob ScottPhotographer

“Print Art and John Botton bring individual care and attention to each and every print. The quality of work is unmatched and John will go the extra mile to get things just as the photographer wishes. I thoroughly recommend Print Art to those who take pride in how their work is presented. You wont find better!”

John ParryPhotographer

“I first found Print Art through the internet. I didn’t know what to expect. As an artist, I had been working on a series of detailed drawings and wanted to print some of them for my new online store. I was worried about quality of print and how my original drawings would be handled throughout the process. But I needn’t have worried as John was terrific on both counts. He handled my drawings and subsequent prints with care and attention. He matched the colour of the original drawings beautifully, taking time to colour correct, trim, re-size and place the images on the sheets. John tried a few test sheets on different types of papers for me to achieve the look I wanted. Very patient and understanding. It was like a huge weight was lifted off my shoulders, because I knew I had found someone I can trust to do the job well. Now I can keep my mind on my drawings. Thank you John. “

My saga begins with the mortifying damage to a piece of art I did some time ago but really wanted keep as it was the first work I ever did when learning how to paint. The work had faded and crinkled as if it had water damage.  I was really upset but had read an article about Print Art so I rang.   John was really helpful and assured me he could help.  I had never had professional prints done before so didn’t know anything about the process, except what I had read. John guided me through the whole process and choices with the end result being two lovely prints; one on archivally sound paper and one on very good quality paper to send to a friend. You would never know there had been any damage to the original and the colours were vibrant.  I am very happy with the outcome and would recommend John and Print Art to everyone.  Thanks John

For a professional photographer, there are a few tools you can use to end up with a great printed image. Your camera is obviously key. Also, how you portray your subject, using your ‘eye for composition’ and unique editing style also add to the success of the image. The final key is choosing the right company to print your image. Print Art is the company I choose to do all of my printing for me. I have found them to be reliable, accurate and (almost) as passionate about my images as I am. I highly recommend Print Art for your printing requirements

John started printing my pictures some time ago, I have been delighted with the results, he is knowledgeable, and agreeable to work with, and always meets my deadline with spectacular results!  I have no hesitation recommending his services.
