Printing/Framing

We offer exhibition quality printing for local photographers in the Shropshire/West Midlands region.

Unit B3.1, Maws Craft Centre, Jackfield, Telford, TF8 7LS. Phone 01952 885676.

Gallery opening times are:

Wednesday-Monday 10.30am – 4.30pm (Closed Tuesdays)

I have been printing and framing my own photographs, works by many different artists and everything brought in by the general public since we opened our first gallery in 2004. Due to increasing workload we are now only offering a very limited framing service but are happy to continue printing to the highest standard for discerning photographers.

Complete Exhibition Print-Mount-Frame option. I have been printing my own gallery and exhibition prints for fifteen years using Epson printers and Epson Inks. In Oban we offered a proofing, printing and publishing service for many of the local artists using Epson 7600, 4880 and 9880 wide format printers. I am delighted to announce that I have recently reinvested in the latest Canon equipment. Currently I can print to frame images up to  24×36 inches and wider on gloss, satin and fine art matt papers.

Turnaround times.

As I am first and foremost a landscape photographer I would like to advise that typical turnaround times for printing are two weeks and for a complete print-mount-frame service three to four weeks. Work will often be completed much faster but as I am regularly away making my own images I would prefer to offer sensible lead times to avoid any disappointment.

Printing

Prints are produced on a fully calibrated, state of the art Canon Prograf printer using Lucia inks which are lightfast for in excess of 100 years. Using a superb range of Fotospeed Gloss, Lustre and Fine Art Matte Papers for which the printer is profiled I can produce dynamic prints of the highest exhibition standard.  You can opt to have your print mounted and framed to complete the package too. Prices listed below are for single images in any given size. Discounts will be applied for multiple prints and ongoing printing work.

Mounts ( cut to order) come complete with cream core backs. All white core conservation standard. Critically all mounts cut with a ‘drop’ ( wider base margin) to provide correct balance to an image ( let me know if you don’t require this).

Single up to A4 image size       £3.50 each

Double/Deep bevel up to A4   £5.50 each

Single up to A3 image size      £5.50 each

Framing

I try to source the very best mouldings and materials to frame with. I have three main suppliers for the wood lengths ( moulding) used for frames and two more for all the mountcard ( matte card) and finishings etc required to complete the work to an exhibition standard. Your print will be mounted using archival quality card, acid neutral tapes. Glazed with your choice of 2mm float glass, 2.5mm clear acrylic* or 2mm non reflective glass* ( not recommended with a bevel cut mount). The images are backed with Art Cor aqua water repellant board.

* Please enquire for prices for these services

Great care is taken with closing up the frame with painstaking glass cleaning and dust removal, full taping and application of all hangings.
