PRINT MAKING

The invention of the printing press generated a small revolution in the dissemination of information and knowledge among the masses. Functioning among the elites of the exclusive art world, and utilizing the skills and crafts of the artisans, the printmakers were able to copy the paintings of the old masters, to be sold and enjoyed by all social classes.

Today, in the hands of creative artists, the various methods of making prints are accepted as a medium to create and make Fine Art, both in multiples and originals.

Large format inkjet printers, use computerised systems that are able to match colours accurately, and apply lightfastness inks by spraying with precision. High quality art prints are easily achieved. Archival ratings can range up to 200 years without fading. Its best to frame these behind non-reflective glass.
