Description

BRINGING COLOUR TO YOUR VISION

Giclée is a French word meaning “to spray or to squirt”, referring to the way high-resolution printers work and has since expanded to refer to the archival quality prints that Fine Art printing produces. They are archival quality prints that stand the test of time and won’t fade or degrade. 

We offer a range of acid free archival papers, in a variety of textures from CANSON® INFINITY.They have a long history in the manufacture of paper and we feel they offer the quality and character required to bring your Art to life.

So whether you are reproducing an original art piece, illustrations or photos, we are confident you will find the right paper to suit your needs. (Scroll down to the bottom to see a description of our papers to help you decide)

IMAGE CAPTURE

At The Colour Den we offer photographic copying of all types of Artwork ideal for producing high quality Fine Art Giclée prints.

It is our aim to accurately capture the colour of your image to ensure minimal post production editing. However it is worth noting that some pigments remain challenging such as fluorescent, metallic and very saturated colours.

The final file is saved as a high resolution Tiff with an embedded RGB profile. We will supply this to your email address via WeTransfer.

Pricing is £25 per image which includes any minor colour correction and 1 small proof. The cost of the final print on your chosen paper is additional.
