Are we photographing your art and supplying images back to you?
The team at The English Art Co. has years of experience producing high quality printed items using our trusted supplier network.
We have the facilities and capabilities to professionally photograph your art in our studio in Leeds. We use high-end colour calibrated equipment, assigning appropriate colour profiles, to then produce artwork and reproduce accurately on product.
It's important to quality control all aspects of this process. If we're photographing your original art there are a few things you need to know and consider:
We like a minimum of 5 pieces to photograph in one session. Each piece needs to clearly marked up with title, size, medium used and name of artist, carefully wrapped, clean and dust-free and supplied to us before the photography date.
Colours, reproduction and retouching
Some colours are renowned for being difficult to reproduce, especially whites, brights, neons, golds and oranges. This is due to the various print production processes. We're dedicated to achieving accuracy and consistency across the board so we'll do our best. We can do a slight adjustment to colour - a global retouch* - to enhance the colour but you will always approve. Any huge adjustments and retouching will incur additional charges (pre-quoted). The types of paper (textured/smooth/silk) can also affect reproduction.
We'd prefer you to be present at our studio at the time of the photography so you can check the colours and image. If you can't be on site then you must be available at the time of the photography session so we can talk on Skype or Facetime and send you the test shot for approval.
The Artist retains copyright of the images at all times.
Please make sure your original art is insured when it's with us.
