At Troika Editions we want to encourage the collecting of photography. Regularly we publish new photographs and artists' books for you to choose from. To help you we provide videos featuring each artist discussing their work, brief reviews and light heartened Q & A's.
Each print will come with a certificate signed by the artist and indicating its unique edition number. This is proof of the print's authenticity and should be kept in case you ever wish to sell the print in the future or if it is necessary to prove its provenance. See our brief history of limited editions in FAQs.
How we print
Your image will be printed immediately after we receive your order. We aim to send it out within 48 hours so that it reaches you within 3-4 working days (in the UK).
The type of process used to produce each image is selected by the artist and will either be a Lambda or Giclée digital print on high quality archival paper.
Before the final prints are made we produce a number of test print for the artists to approve quality and colour fidelity. All prints are checked against these approved samples before being shipped.
Lambda prints are produced using three coloured lasers (red, green and blue) exposing directly onto conventional photographic paper, which is then processed in the same manner as the traditional photographic print by developing in "wet" chemistry. Lambda is the name of the machine these prints are produced on. The prints are often called C-type or digital C-type.
Giclée prints - the word Giclée ("g-clay") comes from the French gicler meaning "to squirt, spurt, or spray" - are high quality digital inkjet prints produced on art paper.
Both processes produce archival and colourfast prints. This is of course depends on many different factors. The main thing to bear in mind is to keep the print under glass and out of direct sunlight. See framing advice for more information.
It might help you to note that the first sizes quoted are for the dimensions of the paper and not the printed image. The printed image will be placed within this paper leaving a border on all sides. The size of the image is also quoted for each printed photograph.
Please note that the border shown is approximate and may vary with the each print size. The exact sizes will be specified in the detailed information accompanying each photograph.

Purchasing the print conveys ownership of the actual print but not the copyright, nor any licence to reproduce the image (see our terms and conditions for the legalese).
