Over the centuries Selby Abbey suffered more than most. It was severely damaged by Cromwell's troops, the central tower collapsed in 1690 and after many years of neglect it used, in the middle of the 18th century, as a warehouse. It had a major restoration in the 19th century and then a major fire in 1906. Seeing the abbey makes it hard to believe it has endured so many misfortunes.
We use a high resolution 50 mega pixel Canon camera, mounted on a Guardian stand, which allows us to capture A0 plans comfortably without losing any clarity or definition. Plans larger than A0 are digitally stitched using Adobe Photoshop by experienced reprographic staff. Images are captured at a minimum resolution of 300dpi as TIFFS using Phase One capture software.
Paper copies at A4 and A3 size are printed on 120gsm high quality matt paper using good quality printing ink.
Paper copies larger than A3 (A2 up to A0) are printed on 170gsm high quality matt coated paper, using UV inks which do not fade or lose colour over time.
Photographs are printed on 300gsm satin and gloss paper.
