Hundreds of years ago many of the villages in the dales did not have a church. For places such as Muker and Thwaite the nearest church would be in the parish of Grinton. This meant that bodies were placed in a wicker basket and carried along 'Corpse Way' to Grinton, Along the route stones were laid so that when a rest was needed by those carrying the basket, the body could be placed on the stone.
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.
All orders will be dispatched within 3 working days
