Services for Herefordshire Artists

OK, it's not only for Herefordshire artists - we scan and print for artists, photographers, galleries and museums from across the region - but you know what we mean. We recognise the value that artists place on being able to discuss the reproduction of their work with the print technician. H.Art logo It's so much simpler that way and produces better results. Maybe that's why we've got an H.art winner or two to our name! You are welcome to bring your work to our office in Weobley and take your prints away with you same day.

Step One: Scanning …creating a Digital Master of your work

Giclée prints are only as good as the file they are made from. We carefully photograph your painting in our studio to produce a super high resolution digital master that we can print from.

Your Artwork Size Scanning Price
Small (longest dimension up to 400mm) £24
Medium (longest dimension up to 600mm) £30
Large (longest dimension up to 1000mm) £36
Super (longest dimension over 1000mm) P.O.A.

We will store and safely backup these files for you, but never hold them to ransom - it's your artwork after all - and you are always welcome to take the digital masters away with you if you wish. You'll find they'll be welcomed at any print bureau.

Step Two: Printing ...the perfect giclée on the perfect paper

Our prints are made with an industry leading 12 colour ink set that gives rich, vibrant prints that should be fade free for over 100 years.

Giclée Print Size On Baryta Paper On Rives Paper
A4+ (up to 215mm x 300mm) £12 £18
A3+ (up to 300mm x 450mm) £18 £24

Baryta or Rives?

We tested over 40 papers before settling on these two very particular papers.

Canson Baryta Photographique is the paper that came out top in those tests. Richer colours, brighter whites and deeper blacks mean your prints will look at their best.

But, there's more to choosing a paper than technicalities.

That's where BFK Rives comes in. This is a paper with a fine-art heritage going back hundreds of years. Its gorgeous, velvety texture turns a print into a work of art.

Limited Edition Printing ...save on multiple prints

We understand that printing the several copies of the same image required for a limited edition print run is a major undertaking for most artists. But printing multiple prints at one time brings many benefits. Print consistency is one - and it's a big one of course. We strive to maintain constant image quality from print to print, day to day, year to year, but printing is a real world activity and absolute consistency simply isn't acheivable: especially when prints are being scrutinised by a trained artist's eye. But multiple prints run at the same time do match as closely as possible: using the same inks, the same batch of paper, the same environmental conditions ensures the greatest possible consistency. The other big saving is time, and this allows us to offer generous discounts for multiple prints made at the same time.
