New spray booth at Atkins

Our new spray booth This month we commissioned our new spray booth to aid in the coating of Giclée prints. Our canvas prints are all coated with a water-based matte finish spray, but you can also order your art paper prints coated.

Our Giclée print process uses pigment ink printing that sits on the surface of the paper . This makes all ink prints prints susceptible to damage. An over-spray provides that extra layer of protection.

Spraying is an option at $45 per square meter. The spray is certified to extend the longevity of the prints.

Our cards are awesome.

CardsI am blowing our trumpet, but a beautifully printed print from one of your images, mounted on a glossy white or black card is the ultimate thoughtful card. The receiver gets  a keepsake, it's more of a gift. We have several world recognised artists (and myself) that spread their seasons greetings with these cards. Join the club.

You can purchase just one, or as many as you want. You can assemble using the archival double sided adhesive  dispenser we stock. We also provide the full assembly service. We use photographic matte (Kodak E lustre surface) paper, but can use gloss, or for additional cost metallic or art papers.

Card and print sizes: **new**DL card – 8×4 inch (20.3×10.2cm) print Large Sq – 5x5inch (12.7×12.7cm) print Small Sq – 4x4inch (10.2×10.2cm) print 6×4 – 6x4inch (15.4×10.2cm) print

Just set your file up to the sized card you want at 300ppi and email it in. They come with envelopes, ready to post. All you need to to is write your message.

Santa Photos - a business idea

Here is a great opportunity. If you are thinking of doing Santa Photos but the logistics make it too hard, we have this neat little system to help. It is based on an iPad ordering app we have written and allows you to take the photos and we can do the rest.

  1. You set up and shoot the photos
  2. Choose the picture that looks best
  3. Hand your client the iPad running our software for them to fill in their details.
  4. Charge your client your price.
  5. Daily export the forms to us with the chosen photos.
  6. We colour correct, print and post to your clients the next day.

High quality Santa photos with little fuss. We can even provide the iPad.

Enquire by email or phoning Paul Atkins on 08 8431 6755.

Mounting and framing is at full strength

The past year has been tricky for Atkins as James, our long term finishing expert has been unwell. Thankfully James is back and has his health.

In June we were lucky to reacquanit with Mandy Bailey, James' predecessor. Mandy has returned to Adelaide with a young family and is ready to do a few days work, so with Pop, James and Mandy, we are ready to take on some serious work.

Already the crew have shown their capability by framing a 30 piece exhibition in one day.
