Welcome to Alden Fine Print & Co.
I make fine art reproduction prints from artists’ original works, from a high resolution scan or digital photograph. My limited edition prints are created with delight and great care to exceed your expectations, to last many generations.
These are Signature Quality Prints.
I’ve just relocated to the Scottish Highlands. More on our local service soon. You may wish to try our new online tool; upload and preview your artwork at many print sizes, on various fine art papers, choose from our new archival framing options and place your order online today – visit our Uploader.
I have just relocated to Glenelg in the Scottish Highlands, no longer working from Leith, Edinburgh.
Hello, my name is Callum. I set up this business in 2016 after a decade working in commercial print. I spent most of those formative years living in Leith – Edinburgh’s vibrant artistic quarter – there I came to meet many artists who would became friends, clients and trusted critics. The dedication and care with which I produce prints at Alden Fine Print & Co. is borne from the demands of those lovely people.
It was during the years spent in high-volume commercial printing that I realised the need for a print company that first and foremost specialised in printing for artists. Taking an artist’s work or intention and producing that on a printed sheet of paper is no simple task; moreover an artist’s requirements can seldom be communicated in the technical, in-language, of the print shop. I really enjoy spending time with artists, taking part in the process – most importantly – the mutual significance of limited editions perceived by the printer (that’s me) and the artist. I create prints that are worthy of your signature, this is achieved though collaboration and a reciprocal respect for the artwork.
I offer a complete service; digitising, proofing, printing and worldwide delivery. I start with the work, a discussion of suitable fine art papers available, then look at the benefits and tradeoffs of each. I’ll spot limitations and problems on screen or with printed proofs, long before you hold the final printed work. I move on to take a look at printed samples, some might be full size sections of your work. Later I hand over a box of limited edition prints or produce them as needs be. I can dispatch directly to your client or gallery in white-label packaging.
Recently I’ve teamed up with a framing company who produce an array of beautiful archival frames. These are true museum-grade frames fit for your giclée limited edition prints. In 2019 Alden Fine Print & Co. will offer giclée prints, framed and dispatched worldwide with a 5 day* turnaround. I can produce 1 or 1000.
Years of experience and a delight at doing a good job, for a print that will last through generations is my primary motivation. Please do get in touch should you like to discuss your printing requirements. I’m now located in Glenelg in the Highlands.
