Tin Dogs fine art has 18 years of pure screen-printing experience.
We offer artists the chance to work directly with the printer to create the perfect finished piece. The registration, colour matching and print finish quality which we provide have been acclaimed by artists, publishing houses and galleries alike.
We have perfected the use of C.M.Y.K digital and hand made separations to split images into their constituent colours in order to make the acetates for exposure on to silk screens. This allows us to gauge which technique will lead to the perfect reproduction. We use mainly water-based inks for our colour work, and a mixture of water-based and spirit based varnishes to achieve our finishes.
Giclee prints are a high end inkjet reproduction of an image. Our giclees are produced using an Epson 9900 printer, which is recognised industry wide as one of the finest printers within its field. The Inks we use are Epsons own brand so are of the highest colour and archival quality.
Our printer has been calibrated and colour profiled for several papers and canvas’ including Somerset 330gsm Hahnemuhle Photo Rag 308gsm,Minuet 300gsm amongst many others.
Utilising our 18 years of experience the prints produced are considered some of the finest reproductions in the country. Our attention to detail and colour matching plus the ability to administer silk-screen enhancements are our major strengths.
The beauty of giclee printing is that editions can be printed in part, as and when required.
We recently printed these photographs for Steam at the New Kingscross Development in London.
