Each of these posters is printed on-demand and hence we are able to offer all them all in different finishes and sizes at all times. These posters are produced from high resolution digital scans of Abram Games' original posters. You can choose any Abram Games Poster at any size as a rolled print on fine art papers or canvas, a box canvas print or a framed picture. We do not keep stocks of posters ....we really do print on-demand at our own giclee printing facility in Bletchley Park Science and Innovation Centre......and we despatch worldwide.
A giclee (zhee-CLAY) print, is an individually produced,high-resolution, high-fidelity reproduction print produced on a special large format printer. A giclee print is quite simply the closest replication of an original artwork that is currently possible. Giclee prints are produced from digital scans of existing artwork. The giclee print has become the new standard in the fine art industry and is widely embraced for its astonishing quality by major museums, galleries, publishers and artists. Giclee printing is recognised by the Fine Arts Trade Guild as a medium of the very highest quality for the reproduction of art prints that accurately display the artist’s true purpose.
These poster prints are printed individually at high resolutions of 1440 printed dots per inch on satin and gloss papers, fine art paper and canvases to deliver perfect reproduction.
These are fine art prints - they are not the typically low priced lithographic posters. Giclee prints are superior to traditional lithography in nearly every way. The colours are brighter, last longer, and are so high-resolution that they are virtually 'continuous tone', rather than tiny dots. The range, or "gamut" of colour for giclees is far beyond that of lithography, and details are crisper.
In giclee printing, no screen or other mechanical devices are used and therefore there is no visible dot screen pattern. The image has all the tonalities and hues of the original painting. Giclee is a French term meaning to spray or squirt, which is how an inkjet printer works. However, it is not the same as a standard desktop inkjet printer, and is much larger.
We guarantee that you will receive superb gallery quality fine art prints in the fastest possible time.

Fine Art Print Perspectives
The original images are a variety of shapes and sizes. Where the aspect ratio of the selected print does not match the selected print paper size, the print will be made to maximize the size of the print on the paper, i.e. the longest edge of the print will match the longest edge of the paper.
Prints can optionally be provided with a border (for example to allow for framing) of approximately 15mm around the image. This is our standard margin but we can amend this to suit your own particular requirements so please contact us if you need this changed. Prints are not provided cropped. For special border and cropping requirements, please contact Printree directly.
We are pleased to accept enquiries for special fine art print sizes, substrates and other services such as laminating, varnishing and mounting. Please email Printree at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 01908 363439.
