Definition of a Print

Many of our artists are printmakers, their work is all their own " by the hand of the artist". Editions are hand pulled and low, many just do monoprints ie 1 of 1. They are all inked up, a long process when there are several colours, then run through the process be it etching, screenprint, relief print, lithography and several processes.

There are now a proliferation of outlets selling "original prints" These are reproductions, done photographically usually by ink jet, or giclee as often referred to. They tend to be in large or open editions, often in poor quality frames and bear no relationship to true printmaking. Most reputable galleries do not handle these, 

We do stock digital art, this is different again, being created in computer from many elements, almost a collage. They are produced in low numbers.

We are happy to explain the various processes to any callers
