what our customers say

Giclée Printing

Giclée is a French word (pronounced Zhee-Clay) which literally means “fine spray". Giclée fine art prints are produced digitally on high quality inkjet printers, which have the capability to reproduce a much wider range of colours than conventional processes, due to the specially formulated inks and media used. The Giclée process is really the only current solution available to artists who wish to obtain a close match to their original work and have the peace of mind that the prints will remain vibrant and fade resistant for decades to come.

Here at Nidd Imaging, our work is produced on the very latest large format Epson printers, using Epson's latest Ultrachrome HDR ink set, which consists of 11 separate colours. This allows us to achieve a much closer reproduction to the original, especially the more vivid, saturated colours. Combined with 30 years of experience in photographic and digital art reproduction, you can be assured that you will receive the best quality achievable from your original art and at a very competitive price.

Having worked with artists for a number of years, we know the importance of achieving accurate and consistent colour from order to order. We attain this by regular profiling of our medias and have a fully colour managed workflow. We are continually looking to improve our service and welcome feedback (good or bad) from our clients. Please visit our testimonials page to read feedback from our existing customers.

We use only the very best materials, including GENUINE Epson inks, which have been developed especially for the art reproduction industry. Why not contact us for a quotation.

Print permanence…how long will my print last?

All our fine art prints are produced using the very latest Epson Ultrachrome HDR inks, coupled with high quality acid free papers, which have been tested and certified as having a print permanence in excess of 85 years. The Blue Wool Scale measures and calibrates the permanence of printing inks and papers. Traditionally this test was developed for the textiles industry but it has now been adopted by the printing industry as a measure of lightfastness of ink pigments.

Each of our medias has a Blue Wool scale award of at least 6. The scale is graded from 0-8, 0 being poor and 8 considered to be totally fade resistant. The Blue Wool scale 6 is said to translate to a print permanence in excess of 85 years, so you can be confident that your limited edition prints will last a lifetime.

It is important to note however, that the Blue Wool scale tests are carried out under laboratory conditions and real world results may vary

Of course, it is best practice never to display a print or original piece of art in direct sunlight, excessive heat or too close to artificial light for any length of time. The sun is a very powerful bleaching agent, which can fade ink pigments rapidly. Glass is considered a UV filter and will prolong the life of any print or original, should it be exposed to sunlight for extended periods.
