At Salt of the Earth, we’ve been producing digital art giclée prints for digital artists for the past 16 years.
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. All materials are from sustainable sources.
We are located at the junction of Wiltshire, Somerset and Dorset, but we supply to digital artists throughout the UK and Europe.
But our best recommendations will come from our clients…
Why not come and visit us?
You can upload the files to us through this website. You can also send us up to 20 files in one upload with a maximum total size of 4Gb. This service is provided for us by MailBigFile, so it’s totally secure and we get instant notification of your upload.
You can also send us digital files on DVD, memory stick or card. Always try to create images at the highest resolution possible, not just your screen resolution (72dpi). Remember, the higher the quality of your digital files, the better the prints will look.
If you need to use JPEG, use the highest quality/minimum compression setting. TIFF or PSD files deliver the best results. Size the image to the size you want it printed and save at 300 or 360dpi.
However, if you are using 'Art Rage', turn on 'Scripts' before you start painting and then save as a PTG file. We can then scale your work to your preferred size and the best print resolution using the professional version of the software.
All prints from Salt of the Earth come with an embossed Certificate of Authenticity.
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.
