Printing & Scanning

Giclée, the French word for 'spray', refers to the ink jet printing process used to create archival standard fine art prints. At BlueSwift, we use a range of high quality large format printers including Canon and Epson. Our printers allow us to reproduce images up to 44 inches (1118mm) wide. Giclée printing is ideal for artists, photographers and illustrators wishing to reproduce their artwork in small or large print runs. We have a specially selected stock of fully archival museum grade paper, canvas and films.

We utilise Canon's world leading print technology with their 11-colour Lucia Pro pigment ink featuring high impact colours. Five newly developed colours, including fluorescent pink, allow us to produce vivid shades from pastel through to neon.

Ultrachrome HDX ink system, the latest technology from Epson, allows us to produce highly accurate colours at 98% Pantone resulting in beautiful, fully archival quality prints with incredible detail.
