Fine Art Giclée Printing
Giclée prints are pin-sharp resolution fine art prints that have been produced on a high-end inkjet printer, and use archival-quality inks and papers to offer long-lasting, superior quality images of gallery and museum standard. A giclée print is the next best thing to an original, and offers artists, illustrators, designers and photographers an easy and affordable means of printing limited editions of their work on demand, whether they need one print or a hundred.
In my studio at The Factory in Kendal, Cumbria, I only use the finest quality heavyweight archival papers and Epson Superior Ultrachrome K3 inks to produce giclée prints of stunning quality. The papers I use are 100% acid free, will not discolour or fade, will not crack or curl, and are ideal for a variety of fine art print applications. I only use inks that are of proven archival quality, with colours that will last for 70 to 80 years and beyond.
I have carefully selected the following archival-quality papers to print your giclée prints onto. Please note that I do not offer a framing service or print onto other types of paper or canvas.
1. Hahnemühle German Etching 310gsm
With its velvety smooth, fine surface texture, this heavyweight German Etching is a popular paper choice for all manner of traditional fine art work and photography. Equally suitable for colour and black & white images, it meets the highest archival standards in all areas including sharpness, density and colour reproduction.
2. Hahnemühle Photo Rag 308gsm
As its name suggests, this smooth fine art paper is the ideal choice for colour and black & white photography, illustrations and all kinds of digital artwork. Offering a premium matte surface, this 100% cotton paper meets the highest industry standards in all areas and offers detailed reproduction and superb pictorial depth.
3. Somerset Enhanced Velvet 255gsm
Ensuring vivid colour reproduction with rich detail, this radiant white paper has the look and feel of watercolour paper, with a velvety finish and an invisible inkjet coating that brings images to life. Meeting all archival standards, it’s the perfect choice for any artist or photographer.

Order a Sample Pack
I offer a printed sample pack of each of my fine art giclée papers to help you choose the right one for your own prints. Each pack costs £5 and includes a £5 voucher code to use against your first order.
I only accept flattened 8 Bit RGB files saved in JPEG or TIFF formats. Files should be 300dpi and at the final trimmed size. If you require a border, your image must sit within the trimmed size. Ask a photographer to help you if this is not something you are not familiar with.
For custom sizes, simply order using the closest larger paper size.
To ensure your print is of the best possible quality, with accurate colour reproduction, please don’t submit a home-scanned image or amateur photograph. I do not offer an image editing service, so it’s important that your file is technically correct before uploading. Please contact me in advance if you’re not sure your image will meet the minimum standard required.
If you have created original artwork that needs photographing, I recommend you use a professional photographer. I can put you in touch with someone locally if you don’t know anyone.
Giclée prints can only be ordered directly through the website and are non-refundable.
Important: After clicking ‘Add to cart’, please allow time for the system to upload your image. This may take some time to complete if you are uploading a large file. It is also dependent on your internet connection speed so please be patient!
