Updates from our studio.

Our February newsletter. A brand new canvas from Hahnemühle, a new member of staff, and something to look out for on Twitter this month.

Hahnemühle's Latest Canvas Is Here!
Art Canvas Smooth 370gsm by Hahnemühle
Just before Christmas we received notification of a new canvas from one of our favourite manufactures, Hahnemühle. This tied in nicely as we were looking to improve our canvas range at the time. Daguerre is a beautiful canvas, but it isn’t perfect — a reason why we introduced Leonardo last year — heavy blacks have never sat perfectly on it’s surface coating and stretching its 400gsm weight over our frames isn’t always straightforward. With Art Canvas Smooth, Hahnemühle have solved these issues and produced a fantastic canvas, ideal for fine art reproductions.
Art Canvas Smooth has a natural white surface, it’s warmer surface produces a perfectly coloured print with strong colours and deep blacks without any blocking or loss in detail.
It is a 370gsm canvas, the lighter weight making it much easier to stretch on to our conservation quality stretcher frames, giving you a better quality finish every time.
We’re really pleased with Art Canvas Smooth and we’re introducing it as a replacement to Daguerre from today. If you’d like a free sample, please reply with your address and we’ll put one in the post to you.
Our New Studio Manager
Over the last couple of years we’ve been steadily adding to our team to help us better manage your orders. This week Rose joined the studio as Studio Manager, Rose will work with Martin to manage your orders; making sure quality is being kept to our high standards and our turnaround times are being met.
Tweet for a Proof
Last year, for a couple of weeks in February, we introduced Tweet for a Proof. In exchange for a tweet, we printed and posted A4 proofs of your images across one or two of our papers. It was both an opportunity for you to test papers that you might not have seen before as well as a chance for us to introduce ourselves to artists, illustrators and photographers who had not printed with us before. 
We’re going to be running Tweet for a Proof again, so please follow us on Twitter and watch out for our tweets if you’d like to get involved this year and receive a free printed proof.
A Reminder for Martin's Digital Printing Course
Taking place on Saturday March 25th, Martin will be running a one day course at the Watershed Studio in St Osyth. The course will focus on capturing your original artwork, discussing different print methods, getting your images print ready — with some simple capture and editing tips — and then selling and marketing your prints online.
For artists, illustrators and photographers interested in the world of digital printing but without all the knowledge and tools to break down the sometimes high entry point. This course will give you straight forward tips on how to capture your original artwork using a scanner or digital camera, how to edit your image and produce a ‘print ready’ file, while explaining all the technical terms you’ll come across along the way.
Students are invited to bring one of their own originals to photograph and the cost of the course includes an A3 print that we’ll print and post to you the following week.
