A new gallery for York

Interesting man, interesting Photograph!

We have just taken an order for some display boards, a pretty standard job for us and nothing to get too excited about. That is until the artwork arrived and its for a new gallery in York.

It turns out a customer (Duncan Lomax) we have known for years is renovating a property. The chap is a professional photographer, and we always tend to have a natter when we meet up, so I asked him about the gallery, and we get chatting.

I mention the new HP 12 ink printer we have and the fantastic quality it gives us. Duncan checks out a few black and white samples from another York Photographer, and I mention the machine has four dedicated inks (Techy bit: grey, light grey, photo black and matte black) that give outstanding result and contrast in black and white.

Duncan reaches in his pocket and whips out his mobile and shows me a picture he has just taken of the outgoing Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu. I like the photograph straight away, and Duncan fills me in on the story of how the picture came about. Check it out on his BLOG, link at the bottom of the page.

My immediate reaction is, let me print it for you. You need to see what this machine is capable of.

I set the printer up to produce the finest Giclee print possible and hit print. The results are stunning; the pictures in this blog post do not do it justice. 

Archbishop of York

I am pretty sure Duncan will have this in his new Gallery on Holgate Rd (I will update the post with the grand opening date) so feel free to pop along, take a look and have a chat.

Read the excellent blog post about his meeting with the interesting man.

The Archbishop and I…

The Covid-19 epidemic has been terrible, but the one thing it has given me, is the time to talk and listen to my customers, and for that, I am thankful. Cheers for the chat Duncan and making mundane display boards just that little bit more interesting.
