We feel that a real fine art print should have the input of the artist during this important step. Your artist proofs are imaged on the same materials as you editions. No guessing, no on-screen estimates – these are the genuine article. While most every other printer has abandoned artists proofs for economic reasons, we understand that meeting the fine artist’s vision is the single most important thing we can do to support their success. So important is this step that we don’t charge extra so that the cost is not a barrier to getting the perfect print.

Move up to the Hottest Giclée Printing Available, Giclée Prints For The Artist
Two of the biggest buzzwords in the art-market today are “Giclée Printing“, and “Pigment Printing”. If you are looking for Canvas Gallery Wraps or Deckled Water Color Rag Paper, we are your professional Giclée Printing source. With an ultra-high apparent resolution of 1800 dpi, and the ability to print on many fine art substrates, the Giclée processes are commanding a great deal of gallery and professional print buyer attention. Ideal for fine art limited editions, the Giclée fine art print has become the preferred method for fine art reproduction world-wide. Gone are the days when full artist editions had to be run at one time. With our high-end Giclée fine art prints, your editions can be run in smaller batches, as little as one print at a time. Why spend your money printing thousands of artist Giclée prints on speculation?
Many clients feel that our TrueArt™ process, combined with our years of ground-breaking technical experience in the digital realm, provide for fine art prints that outperform the competition for color fidelity and detail. The twelve color printing process of the Canon Giclée printer provides a much larger color gamut than the four and six color versions on the market today, and our technicians measure their professional reproduction experience in decades, not just years.
The mystery behind “Giclée ”
You probably already know that the word “Giclée” is French, with a loose English translation of “to spray”. But there is no magic behind a fine art Giclée print itself. A Giclée printer is not a photo print per se, but rather an expensive high-end ink-jet printer with higher resolution heads and the ability to work with archival fine art inks and substrates such as, Giclée printing watercolor rag papers, Giclée canvas, and other art and graphics printing papers. By using “archival” pigmented inks, this printing medium preserves your fine-art and portrait photo print buyer’s investment; making your artwork a more attractive purchase. And just how archival is a Giclée artist print? There is a great deal of debate surrounding the longevity of Giclée printing methods, much of it a result of differing opinions on how to “correctly” test that longevity. The truth is, no one really knows for sure, but best guesses from testing place them between 70 and 100 years when archivally stored – less when hanging on a wall. Before we decide on the paper and canvas stocks we run through our Giclée printers, manufacturer specifications on longevity are examined and we test the printing papers to make sure the final print quality meets our stringent professional guidelines. We take the risk out of printing photos online, your satisfaction is completely guaranteed, and we have an A+ rating with the BBB.
