FINE ART GICLEE
Fine art giclee printing, when done well, is an art unto itself. Great printing requires complete control of every aspect of the reproduction process. That includes calibrating the camera, monitor, and printer to produce predictable and consistent results. An image will be analyzed and processed by 4 to 6 different programs before it is ready to print. It will often take hours to photograph and process a single image but the end results can be spectacular! When combined with the right paper/canvas and inks, and properly cared for by their owners, images will endure for well over 100 years.

While print shops offer great services, they are not typically considered to be fine art printers and they should not be expected to be! Print shops can deliver great duplicating services but most do not have the equipment, skill, knowledge or interest it takes to produce exceptional fine art (giclee) prints. This, however, always works well for us especially when we put print shop reproductions next to ours!
