Copperhead Editions Ltd was started in 2013 by Valerie Vargas and Stewart Robson.
In 2008 Valerie began selling colour copies of tattoo flash designs.
With the desire to offer prints with a more exclusive feel, in 2011 she sourced Gicleé art prints from Hurtwood Press, London.
While impressed with the quality of the art prints, it wasn’t possible to offer affordable, high quality output via this process.
While there are many reputable digital print companies and repro houses in Europe and the USA, Shipping heavy paper and irreplaceable original artwork added to the cost and headache.
So Valerie and Stewart decided to use Stewart’s decade-long experience in design, print and repro to produce affordable gicleé prints and flash in house, without sacrificing quality.
Alongside industry standard colour profile workflow, each print is checked against the original artwork as it rolls off the printer to ensure you receive the most accurate colour reproduction.
After customising colour profiles and printer settings, we think that the prints we sell are often better looking than the hand-made originals.
We use archival quality paper and pigment based ink for long-lasting results on all our prints. Each page lets you know what kind of paper each print uses.
Copperhead Editions is also the means to commission illustration work from Valerie.
