Inspirational Arts:
Passionate about Photography & Printing.

Inspirational Arts specialises in fine art digital printing.

Established in 2003, proprietors Ed Dunne and Jim Butler, together with Tim Durham and Patryk Gizicki, are focused on providing high quality prints to our clients, most of whom are visual artists. We also print for architects, photographers (both professional and amateur) and painters who want high quality reproductions of their work.

Central to our work is establishing a close working relationship with our clients.

We are very attentive to understanding our clients’ vision of how their work should look and feel. We enjoy this process of collaborating closely with artists. And clients say so too. As a result of our experience, our commitment to high quality and our attentiveness to our clients’ needs, we work with many of Ireland’s leading artists, architects and photographers.

Together, the team at Inspirational Arts has nearly 60 years of knowledge and experience of fine art digital printing which we place at your disposal.

We have the widest range of printing media in Ireland and we are accredited as a Certified Print Studio / Print Lab by Hahnemühle and Canson whose papers we use. We also print on a wide range of Japanese Awagami papers.

And if you are thinking of framing, we have extensive experience of framing and can advise you on what will work well with your work and your budget, and we have partnered with a few like-minded artisans to provide print mounting and framing services.

Hahnemühle FineArt

Inspirational Arts was one of the first businesses in the world to be accredited as a Certified Print Studio by Hahnemühle FineArt. Among many criteria, Hahnemühle Certified Print Studios must have an advanced understanding of archivability and the longevity of their prints and must apply correct print handling practices, and fully implement Colour Management best practice workflows. These practices assure consistent high-quality output.

Canson Infinity

We have also been accredited as a Canson Infinity Certified Print Lab. We were selected and certified by Canson because we demonstrated that we have the technical capability and expertise to produce Canson Infinity Fine art prints to the very highest standards. This international certification guarantees the high quality standard of the work produced by Inspirational Arts.
