As many artists need reproductions of their artwork, Simon Barnes PhotoArt is here to help you in creating limited edition Giclee fine art prints. We print on Gloss, Lustre, fine art papers and ultra modern acrylic floating panels. We use state of the art lighting and high end cameras to photograph your original artwork. Your digitized image is then worked on at my studio office where it is then sent for printing to our PhotoArt Laboratory.

So how does it work. Well, you bring along your artwork to my studio at a charge of £50, or we can shoot it at your location if required.. Please note that shooting artwork on location is charged at £150 to include lighting set up at your premises and traveling to your studio. I work with top of the range cameras with razor sharp lenses for maximum quality. I will photograph your artwork in 14 bit compressionless Raw format at 300ppi. You will receive 1 image as a JPEG and one image as an extremely highly detailed TIFF FILE for your printing requirements.
Then we resize the image to your requirements ready for printing in Lightroom and transfer it for lab printing. Your image will be archived in our database for additional runs in the future. We can calibrate the image to match your artwork with our colour checker passport software if required. There is an additional fee for this service. Please see prices over on the right of this page.
Our turnaround time for image capture of original artwork is 2 working days. Postage and packaging is an additional cost and is charged at cost price. Archival prints can be collected. If posted, your order will be packaged in a tube ready for delivery. We do not flat pack prints due to possble damage to the corners of the parcels, so cardboard tube are a much safer and viable option for your precious prints to arrive with you intact and damage free. Please note that we cannot track First Class Royal mail Delivery. We can track a courier option which is guranteed on a 24 hour delivery.
