Fine art printing at Salt of the Earth

 

At Salt of the Earth, we’ve been producing fine art giclée prints for artists for the past 16 years.

 

Our large format scanner can capture artworks at high-resolution and at 48bit. This together with our 'mastering' process produces the most faithful reproductions.

 

Having been awarded ‘The Best Digital Printer of the Year’ by the Fine Art Trade Guild, we are also one of the  ArtSure registered printers in the UK - so, in addition to the ArtSure quality, we can also provide the full ArtSure registration service.

 

We offer a fast service - we can normally turnaround orders for prints within 48hours.

 

We are located at the junction of Wiltshire, Somerset and Dorset, but we supply to artists throughout the UK and Europe

FAQ's

The giclée printing process

The Process

Once we have your artwork, we scan and master it. This is where our skill and years of experience come in, to capture the spirit of the artwork, and produce the closest match to your original. Mastering is a method of digitally ‘fine-tuning’ the print. We can scan up to 1.5m square.

 

The scanning is done at very high sample rate/resolution, to capture the maximum detail and colour information, but the most critical process is the mastering.

Certificates of Authenticity

All giclée prints from Salt of the Earth come with an embossed Certificate of Authenticity.

How Much Does it Cost?

The scanning and mastering costs from £48.00 upwards, depending on the size of the original. We’ll always quote you a price first. You get a DVD or USB stick containing your master file, and a JPEG copy for publicity, etc. plus a HiDPI version for use on a website. But more importantly, you'll get an individual ‘Certificate of Authenticity’ with every subsequent print we make for you.

The price of prints depends on their size and type of paper/canvas. We offer a 10% discount if you order five or more prints from any image.

 

We can also produce cards, postcards and promotion material from your master file.
