Studio 19 offers a giclée printing service for fine art reproductions and digital art/photography.
Our giclée printing is undertaken on the Epson Stylus Pro 7900 – 24” wide format printer, utilising the Epson UltraChrome HDR (High Dynamic Range) high density pigment inks. The Epson UltraChrome HDR ink set consists of eleven ink cartridges; photo black, matte black, light black, light light black, cyan, light cyan, yellow, vivid magenta, vivid light magenta, green and orange, which enables an extremely high level of colour accuracy due to the expanded colour gamut and deeper blacks. Lightfastness ratings for Epson UltraChrome HDR inks under glass and under normal indoor conditions is up to 200 years for colour and over 200 years for black-and-white prints.
We look for the best image quality and long life expectancy when selecting the media we use for giclée printing.
