Digital printing

At Hippo we have the facilities to print digital, or ‘giclee’ prints either in limited or open editions. We can print onto most types of coated paper from poster paper to textured fine art papers, as well as artists canvas. Our digital canvas prints can be stretched onto stretcher bars and supplied ready to hang, and we can also apply a hand painted textured varnish to the surface to achieve the finish and appearance of an oil painting.

By combining our screen printing and digital print facilities Hippo can also produce editions of mixed media prints. We have completed projects such as applying a screen printed spot varnish to an edition of digital canvas prints; adding gold leaf details to fine art giclee prints and hand screen printing song lyrics over digitally printed photographs.
