Bespoke Service

Most Direct to Media printing is Bespoke and by quotation, as the price depends on the material to be printed on, whether we supply the material, and the number of passes of ink required.

Available Substrates


Printing directly to clear materials such as glass or Perspex, allows artwork to take on a transparent quality, and can even be used to create special effects.


Our Direct to Media printer can also be used for innovative interior design pieces, from floor tiles to wall tiles - mosaics to any size can be created in our lab.


Working and testing with a variety of materials gives us an opportunity to come up with one-off beautiful pieces like this copper landscape print from Carl Bigmore’s series ‘Between Two Mysteries’.


We’ve worked with interior designers to create truly unique, one-off pieces of art and decor. We’ll happily test ideas with you in the lab, so pop us an email or call us and we’ll talk through your ideas.


Printing directly to wood is a popular choice, by selecting the right imagery the wood grain naturally enhances the existing artwork.


Printing directly to Aluminium creates a whole new dimension to the traditional print and mount, images take on a metallic look and provide a modern alternative look.


As our printer can print to almost any flat surface, we encourage our clients to think outside the box - you can blend materials together to make a sculptural piece of artwork.


This material has proven an ideal medium for architectural photography and portraits with muted tones, just call us to arrange a test print and see for yourself!


As well as creating artworks, our Direct to Media printer can also create signs for any location - whether it be part of an exhibition or for outside use.
