Printing of art and photographic work is now achievable using a new range of printing processes and techniques. We are a leader in producing high quality art and photographic prints to sizes not possible with traditional darkroom printing.
Our team have very many years of experience working with photographers and artists in the reproduction of their work. By their nature, every artist and project is truly unique and is needs to be handled with experienced hands. Over the last 10 years our team has helped artists in London and throughout the UK enjoy an explosion in new printing possibilities with these new digital printing technologies and materials.
We produce extremely high quality prints with our Fuji Acuity flat-bed printer prints on almost any material – including metal, wood, glass and a range of plastics. Our computer aided cutting systems cuts out even the most intricate shapes. Our printer uses extra ink channels to create near photographic quality prints onto most materials. The advantages of UV direct to media print over traditional photographic processes are,
- Prints are now possible to a maximum size of 3,000mm x 2,400mm
- Prints do not fade under strong daylight
- Prints are suitable for display indoors and out doors
SAS Graphics have also developed our own stunning high quality art printing techniques. This includes large format printed photographs and art displays made with Dibond (ACM) and acrylics for outdoor exhibitions and galleries.
Printing directly onto materials like Dibond is now possible with the same quality as traditional photographic processes. The printed panel can be laminated in the same way as a photographic print. Direct to media printing is more durable than traditional photographic printing and is not prone to de-lamination or fading.
We print directly onto the back of acrylic to create high quality photographic panels directly comparable with traditionally printed Diasec acrylic face mounted prints. Direct to media printing has the advantage that we print to much bigger sizes than possible with traditional printing.
Some of our recent projects include:
Gideon Mendel – Drowning World
As part of Estuary Festival we printed 25 photographic panels from Gideon’s Drowning World project. the images are UV printed directly onto Dibond ACM material for exhibition at the old Tilbury cruise terminal.
Iain Mckell – Infinity
Again as part of the Estuary Festival we printed 40 panels of images that spans four decades of extraordinary photographs. From the music and street culture of Southend in the 80s to more recent work documenting radical people over 50 and the recent last days of West Ham fans at Boleyn Ground, Upton Park.
