Soft Proofing

"Only when you print, does your image convey the authority you wish it to have. The print is your photograph’s rightful inheritance."

Charlie Waite

"In an age where image consumption is at an all-time high, it's important to print images on paper and bring them from a virtual world of pixels into the physical sphere."

Andy Farrer

“In my mind’s eye, I visualize how a particular… sight and feeling will appear on a print. If it excites me, there is a good chance it will make a good photograph. It is an intuitive sense, an ability that comes from a lot of practice.”

Ansel Adams

Fine Art Printing for Artists & Photographers

Andy and his business partner, Carlo, formed Fine Art Inkorporated in 2017 as a dedicated print studio in Swanage. The setup has professional Canon printers and a wide choice of fine art papers. Also equipped with a comprehensive range finishing equipment, prints can be bonded to substrates and mounted, to ensure they remain flat. 

Prints can be made onto canvas as well. A great option for clients seeking large wall art, epecially in bright rooms where framed glass prints can be problematic with reflections. The canvasses are laminated with a near invisible matt laminate and stretched onto top quality pine stretcher bars on site.

Andy prints for many highly respected photographers and artists and takes great pride in guiding his clients through the process of producing printed artwork.

Fine Art Prints

The studio stock a wide selection of papers which are approved by the Fine Art Trade Guild and when used in conjunction with pigment inks will ensure a print life of more than 85 years. All papers and printers are running custom ICC profiles to ensure accurate colour reproduction, so rest assured Andy will provide you with prints of the very highest quality. The studio is also equipped with hot and cold dry-mounting facilities. Dry-mounting is to bond prints to a substrate to ensure they remain completely flat. The two different systems allow the most suitable method to be used depending on the size and substrate required.

Canvas Printing

Printing onto canvas is ever-popular and economical providing a non-reflective finish ideally suited to bright rooms. The high quality poly-cotton canvas Andy uses is approved by The Fine Art Trade Guild. Once printed it is laminated with a clear matt laminate using a hot vacuum press to completly seal the canvas, providing the best durability possible to the finished product. They are hand stretched, ensuring any excess canvas it trimmed out of the corners, so it sits perfectly flat. The rear of the canvas is finished with tape and felt bumpers and brass hangers.

Soft-Proofing

Soft-Proofing is to preview and adjust on screen with our custom made ICC profiles before making the print. This avoids waste and dissapointment as issues can be seen and rectified on screen. Different papers have different characteristics, such as warmer tone paper bases versus bright white papers which can effect the resulting print.

Matt papers, for example, tend to be "flatter" than on screen without adjustment, but with careful soft-proofing the results will look like the digital version on a matt paper.

Andy or Carlo will expertly prepare your images for print and advise you of any issues before printing. There is no additional cost for this service.
