Fine Art Printing:
As a long standing member of the Fine Art Trade Guild and being owned by an artist, we have a great respect and understanding for fine art printing. Our partner company Designline Systems supplies print media and equipment, allowing us to have in depth knowledge of the equipment we use. The Towngate Publications team have also won awards for print quality in national competitions.
We have a wide range of papers available to our customers from price sensitive to highest quality. Different textures are better suited to certain types of art work and we can help you to make the right decision.
We use colour management systems to maintain consistent colour output. You can rest assured that your first print will be as good as your last.
Photographic printing has become more popular since the development of the digital SLR, as more photographs are taken than ever before. With desktop printers unable to produce these prints at a size for people to admire, we have noticed a substantial growth in our photograph print output.
We have a wide range of photographic print media, from matte to gloss finish, from price sensitive to highest quality so we will have a paper that suits your requirement.
With our canvas printing service you can have your photographic work printed onto a stretched canvas ready for hanging on the wall, please see our canvas printing page for more details.
Gift Card Printing:
As an artist it is always nice to see your work in print on fine art papers. However many artists do not think of the benefits of printing greetings cards.
Greetings cards can be a great way to get your name known as an artist to a wider audience. We like to think of greetings cards as a self promoting advert for each of our artists. Many artists will also have a selection of other images on the back of the card to showcase their abilities. This could be a different style of work or a display of some of your best sellers.
Greetings cards also tend to be a steady seller and are great items to have to hand, to show the different work that you create.
We offer a range of different sizes as displayed below, with or without envelopes and cellophane bags depending on your requirement.
Canvas printing has become a very popular item of ours and seeing a finished limited edition print stretched, varnished and hanging on a wall can be very satisfying. We have a wide range of canvas materials, each having distinctive characteristics. This is something that we are happy to discuss to help you choose the best options.
We also provide a service for people wanting their own images printed onto canvas. This service is offered through our fine art gallery - Towngate Gallery. This service has proven popular for people that would like their holiday images printed onto canvas and we stock a canvas specifically for this purpose.
