How We Do It
The solutions we offer for the beautifully lifelike, digital capture of fine artwork are based upon our highly specialized, German made systems which were custom designed to capture every nuance of fine detail from within the subtle wisps of the lightest colours and tones down through to the deepest darks in the depths of a work.
No matter the method by which the artwork is captured and digitized, in each case the goal is to respond to the aesthetic of the piece and reproduce its essence and character as faithfully as it is possible to achieve.
We are highly competent in the handling of fine artwork whether it be acrylics, oils or pastels or charcoals or pencil drawings each piece is handled with the utmost care as the most effective technique is applied for its digital capture and reproduction.
In terms of pricing: it is always advisable to meet with us to review the specifics of your art and your requirements for its reproduction. From this we can provide a precise quote. We are always available to discuss in person, by email, ZOOM and / or telephone.

What is Giclee?
The term “Giclee” (English = “a squirt” or “fine spray”) was coined in 1992 by one of the print makers at Nash Editions in California, a French-American by the name of Jacque Duganne. Nash Editions is a fine art print studio started by Graham Nash of the music group Crosby, Stills and Nash (later plus Neil Young). Nash was an avid photographer who wanted to use an early professional inkjet printer called IRIS Inkjet (which had been designed for accurate prepress proofing in commercial printing by IRIS Graphic Systems) for the purpose of printing editions of his own photographic work as well as fine art printing.
