How can I get a quote?


Email us with your brief, (sales@harwoodking.com) or call us on 01273 512 554

For a quote please let us know as much information as you can about your project including:

1. Print type (i.e. Silkscreen, Giclee, Flatbed, Mixed Media) 2. Paper type and weight to be used 3. Print dimensions of Image and Paper 4. Total number of prints you require (including AP’s , PP’s and spares)




How should I supply my artwork?


You can bring your original artwork to us and we can photograph and colour match to the original for printing. If you'd like to send us a file for printing, there are a few specifications that we require to make sure you get the best quality product.

- All files need to be sent to us at a minimum of 300 dpi to ensure a high enough resolution for a good quality print.

- It also helps to make the image the size you'd like your physical print to be run at.

- The quality of the photograph or scan of your artwork has to be good enough for us to print from. Photos from phones are rarely of high enough quality. - TIFF, PSD or AI files are best for printing, converting to a JPG you can loose information but we can still print from JPG files.
- Please ensure your files are in Adobe RGB colour space as the colours can change once they are converted on our system.

You can get your files to us a variety of ways. Digitally, we recommend either Dropbox or WeTransfer. You can also bring in your files on USB or hard drive.




What is your turnaround?


Turnaround is on a job-by-job basis, as there are many factors in play, i.e artwork complexity, edition size, your release schedule or exhibition deadline, etc.

The general order of things is to discuss how the artwork will be translated into a print, agree on a quote for the work, artwork prep and proofing, sign off, and finally production of the work.

We will keep you updated through the process so you know when to expect your finished artwork.




Do you deliver?


Yes we offer shipping on any order.

Costs depend on the amount of work being shipped and the packing method.

You are also welcome to come and pick up your work from our Newhaven Studio.




Is there a minimum number of prints I can order?


There is no minimum order for giclée prints.

For silkscreen prints or embellishments there is a minimum of 10 because of the setup costs involved.




Do you supply the paper?

Our Flatbed printer can print up to 125cm x 250cm (49" x 98")
