LARGE FORMAT PRINTING
For larger than normal printing, we have digital wide-format printers capable of printing on media up to 60″ wide (1524mm), with the length only limited by the size of the media roll (usually 50 – 100m).
This means we don’t have to crop a larger image to ‘fit onto A3 paper’ – a practice which can return some pretty unsightly results.
We don’t use the cheaper and fairly unstable water based dye ink in our machine, but prefer the more expensive, and much longer lasting pigment ink. Pigment ink is much more resistant to fading than dye based ink, and will return results which are regularly quoted as being good for the next 75 – 100 years.
We can print on premium photo papers, available in satin or gloss finish.
We also offer a fine art print service. For these prints, we offer a range of fine art papers including:
Canson® Infinity Platine Fibre Rag (Our Favourite)
