Prints and Printing

All Mike Staines’ giclee prints offer the following distinguishing marks:

  • Signed and numbered by the artist
  • Embossing stamp of Mike Staines’ insignia
  • Dated on reverse

Printing

Many an hour has been poured into the calibration and setup of the reproduction process. Our print methods use the latest Epson Ultrachrome inks to achieve the highest possible standards of representation of the original artwork, whilst at the same time maximising the opportunity to reproduce the levels of detail, shading, tone and colour gamut required.

Paper

We use the finest Hahnemuhle matt papers available to reproduce Mike’s originals.

– Hahnemuhle Photorag

308gsm.The fine, smooth surface and feel of Photo Rag® make this paper very versatile and it is ideal for printing both black and white and colour photographs and art reproductions with impressive pictorial depth.

– Hahnemuhle German Etching

310gsm.This heavyweight etching board is velvety smooth with a fine surface texture. German Etching® is one of the most popular media worldwide for artwork and photography, and has been chosen by Mike to reproduce his pieces to the highest possible standard.

Sizes

Mike offers his prints in A5 to A3 sizes dependent on the piece and the nature of the original dimensions.
