In 2012 Tim Ainsworth and Vanessa Howells opened THIRDS Fine Art Printing. The aim was to create a studio that, rather than being purely focused on the technical printing process, reflected our strong belief in a consultative client/printer relationship, as well as our esteem and respect for artistic process.
Above all, THIRDS is a friendly, collaborative space where the three of us – Tim, Vanessa and you – work together to make the best possible prints. From a technical point of view, we specialise in archival pigment printing (also referred to as Giclée Printing) to produce prints at the highest, exhibition standards. We also stock a wide range of paper so your work is always printed on the “right paper” (if there is such a thing).
Our clients are from Melbourne, across Australia and overseas. Working in various mediums we help photographic artists, professional photographers, painters, illustrators, installation artists, hobbyists and students print their work and make it the best it can be.
