Arche Paper Editions
Pepin offers you a vast selection of artwork reproduced on Arche paper, a unique product of which you can see and feel the quality. The artist also numbers and signs every edited copy herself. From a collector's point of view, a reproduction on Arche paper procures the same joy as an original painting!
A reproduction of one of Pepin's original artworks on Arche paper is done from a perfect-quality photograph that is digitised in a sophisticated data archiving system.
After the artist and her technician have verified and adjusted the colors to obtain optimal results, the image is electronically transmitted to an Epson printer. A sheet of Arche, or Fine Arts paper is inserted in a special bypass where minuscule ink jets, finer than a human hair, diffuse the inks on the paper. The printing is done one line at a time, with a resolution of 1440 points per inch. For a medium-size artwork, this process can take up to thirty minutes! The last step consists in fixing the colors with a protective film, resistant to light and UV rays, so the artwork passes the test of time.
