Fine Art Giclee & Photographic Prints

12 Colour pigment based inks & acid free paper for prints up to 44 inch wide

Mp Fine Art Printing offer the highest quality photographic and giclee prints using the finest archival papers by Mp Fine Art, Awagami, Fotospeed & Hahnemuhle. We only use the finest digital media and Canon LUCIA EX 12-colour pigment inks to produce archival quality prints for artists, photographers, galleries and museums.

All of our papers are acid free and many are free of Optical Brightening Agents. Our range includes Handmade Cotton 250 gsm which is handmade using 100% recycled cotton and shows 4 natural deckle edges. This paper has an inkjet layer hand coated on to one side. This is the most unique paper available anywhere in the UK.

We have decided to offer a small selection of papers from the Awagami Factory in Japan. To start with we are offering Bamboo 250 gsm which is an incredible eco paper. We feel we offer the most unigue range of papers within the UK.

Giclee prints are widely accepted in galleries worldwide as an ultra high quality method of printing limited edition or open edition print runs. Fine art can be digitally reproduced upon a wide variety of papers each offering different finishes and weights similar to traditional artists media. We only print upon high quality Digital Fine Art media specifically designed for maximum image quality and print longevity. Tests suggest a life-span in excess of 100 years under optimum conditions. If you are unsure of which paper you would like then please contact us and request a samples pack.

Giclee printing offers photographers the highest quality and archival properties of any digital printing. Papers are available with the same finishes as traditional wet process papers yet offer a substantially longer life-span. Digital giclee prints can last over 100 years under optimum conditions whereas most traditional photographic prints will degrade considerably after 20 years.

Giclee prints have a turnaround time of 48 hrs as standard, ensuring that prints have reached maximum stability before they are dispatched.

Paper samples are available free of charge. Please contact us via email and ask for our sample set.

To ensure we are able to produce the highest quality prints from your digital files, the highest possible quality file must be provided to print. The guidlines below outline certain criteria that should be adhered to in order to produce the best possible file. Please follow these guidelines when preparing your digital files ready to be printed.

If you would like your file printed at a larger size than the resolution will allow we can upscale submitted files but we require the largest file you have in order to maintain quality.
Image Colour Depth If you have the image at 16 bits per channel, please submit that as this will ensure smooth tonal reproduction; otherwise 8 bits per channel will be fine.
Embedded ICC Profile If you have edited your file in an RGB or CMYK colour space please make sure that the colour space profile is embedded when saving your files. Do not embed a printer profile.Eg. If you have edited your file in Adobe RGB (1998) colour space then this colour space profile should be embedded (Tagged) with the file.
Sharpening Please do not apply any output sharpening. We will apply the correct amount of sharpening to suit the printing media used.
File Format Please deliver the image files to us in TIFF (.tif or .tiff) format. TIFF files will ensure the highest quality prints are produced. You can supply PDF (.pdf) or JPEG (.jpg) format files if they are of sufficient quality. Vector files (.ai) can be submitted for illustrations.
