About
Each print is carefully recreated on high quality ‘Somerset  Enhanced Velvet’ paper made at the historic St. Cuthberts Mill.  Situated in the ancient Cathedral City of Wells in the southwest of  England, St Cuthberts Mill has been making paper since the early  1700's, taking advantage of the pure waters of the River Axe. Here  they continue to use traditional methods and are fortunate to have  one of the few remaining Cylinder Mould Machines left in the  world, it is now over 100 years old. The paper we use for our prints  is exclusively produced at St Cuthberts Mill.   Somerset Enhanced Velvet Somerset Enhanced is made from 100% cotton and created using  traditional methods. This exquisite paper has a high whiteness  without unnecessary use of optical brightening agents (OBA). An  archival grade paper buffered with calcium carbonate to combat  acid attack finished prints may encounter from air pollution. Prints  have excellent tonal separation throughout the range, minimal ink  spread and are almost instantly touch dry. Somerset Enhanced is  excellent for fine art photography and fine art reproduction.   Rigorous quality control checks are routinely carried out to ensure  the paper is made to the highest standard. Somerset Enhanced is  Fine Art Trade Guild approved in 255g/m².                        Below: Short video of paper making process at St Cuthberts Mill. 
The Fine Art Trade Guild was formed in 1910  as the successor to the 1847  Printsellers’  Association, set up to oversee the fine art print  trade. The Guild continues to set standards for  prints. In addition, it sets standards and  guidelines for picture framing. Giclée prints produced on the Somerset Velvet Enhanced  paper can have the Fine Art Trade Guild logo placed on them,  showing that they are printed to the Fine Art Trade Guild's high standards and gives the buyer confidence in the quality of the  print. The logo is shown here in full size and would be added  within the bottom border area of a print. This addition is a  personal choice and is available upon request. For customers  having remarques careful consideration should be given to the  overall aesthetics before including the logo. Epson Quality Inks  All our prints are processed  locally to the highest standard  using  Epson UV pigmented  ultrachrome ink. The  UltraChrome ink combines the  main features of EPSON dye  and pigment ink resulting in  vibrant and vivid colour output,  together with a longevity of up  to 75 years (dependent on  media type). Our High Quality rints are created  using the Stylus Pro 10600 which  is ideal for large format Fine Art  reproduction. Developed with two  types of black ink the Stylus Pro  10600 provides maximum flexibility  and is able to meet the  required needs of fine art printing. Photo black ink is designed  to achieve high gloss levels on photographic and proofing  media, while Matte black ink will optimise print quality on plain,  matte and fine art media. Looking after your print To help keep your prints in tip top condition for the years to  come  you are advised not to hang any fine art prints in direct  sunlight or on walls facing strong daylight. Do not illuminate  them with strong halogen or spot lamps. Since heat can also  affect them, keep any light source at least 12’’/30cms away.  Similarly avoid hanging over radiators or fires.
