Tantra has been involved in reproduction by lithography and silk screen for 40 years but now we can offer a new archival service for Artists, Painters, Printmakers and Graphic Designers. We have wide format (up to 44″ wide) Archival giclee printers that can produce virtually any size print from A4 to A0, to an extremely high quality that will last for over 100 years. These prints can be framed and sold as limited edition prints having the vibrancy and accuracy of the originals.
Reproduce your fine art paintings, artwork or photographs at full size on Art Papers or Archival Matt Paper or a Canvas print that can last up from 100 to 200 years and is virtually indistinguishable from the original. Using the phenomenal new Giclée process we can produce high quality prints direct from your digital files, sent in on CD (If from your original – see below) or we can scan artwork for you.
We offer a proofing service, where colour matches to your supplied original, or supplied printed proof are required. We will print your image at A4 size, on the media of your choice, at a cost of £15.+ VAT The proof will be sent to you for approval, then you can call, or email to go ahead with the final print or tell us of any adjustments which need to be made. If a quantity of 12 prints or more of the same image are ordered, we will include free proofing.
Please tell us when you order if you do NOT need a colour proof. We will colour match to our monitor image, and although a fine print can be produced, it is not guaranteed to look like your monitor image. Printing without a proof is not recommended and will be at your own risk.
Canvas prints are not waterproof and can be scratched. To protect them it is recommended to have 3 coats of varnish applied.
We can have your canvas stretched around a wooden frame and protected with 3 coats of varnish.
Image Archiving – We keep the finished digital files ready to reprint until you instruct us to delete them, there is no charge for this service.
For all orders please add: VAT @ 17.5% and Postage – For small orders £5 special delivery.

These prints have been produced using the highest quality Pigment-based Inks and Archival Matte Papers available in the world today. They have a life expectancy in excess of 100 years (given normal hanging or storage conditions, which for prints would be indoors, under glass.) Care should reasonably be taken to avoid exposure to direct sunlight, excessive heat, or damp. The secret of this longevity is the special reaction between the Pigment Inks and the Archival Paper Coating which bond permanently. Extensive testing has been conducted over several years based on accelerated fade tests where prints are exposed to increased levels of Ultra Violet light and accurate analysis over all the colours can determine the rate of decomposition. All colours fade but we do know now the rate at which they fade.
