Fine Art Prints

Here at MK Watercolours we offer bulk wholesale giclee printing services.

We use an Epson Stylus Pro 11880 64″ meaning we can print up to a whopping 64″, 1,626mm, on the shortest side of the image. we only use authentic Epson Ultrachrome K3 inks. This is a 9 ink printing system with vivid magenta. These are aqueous all-pigment inks, this means that the inks have UV resistance, where Epson grades them at 75years for colours and 200years for black and white. You can read up more on our large format printer and inks HERE.

We have access to a large variety of papers from fine art paper thought to photo papers and canvas. We can send samples and print samples at a small fee that will be taken off the cost of your next bulk order. We can also supply thick cello bags and 700gsm boxboard backing board.

Feel free to contact our team if you would like to discuss printing options for your artworks.

Lets Talk Giclee

Giclee (Zhee-Klay) is a French word meaning to spray or squirt the liquid. In giclee printing there is no screens or devices used and no visible screen patterns in the digital reproduction. Therefore the image can closely, if not identically, represent the hues of the original piece.

The process of the giclee print involves using high resolution digital files of the original pieces and archival quality inks (Lightfast), in conjunction with archival papers. This process, in conjunction with the 8-12 professional colour ink systems ensure a better colour accuracy than other ways of printing.
