Superior Fine Art Giclees

Fine Art Printing Service by West Shore

Create Giclees from Original Art

 Capture

 

Bring in your original art.  This will enable us to create a proof with the closest match to your original piece.  We will professionally light and photograph your art and create a digital file to prepare for printing.  If your original is a photograph, skip this step and bring in the original digital file. 

 

Setup includes preparation and color management.  Your digital file will be prepared for printing.  The digital files will be sized and optimized for the closest match of color, value, intensity, contrast, etc. to your original art.  We will compare it to your original for the truest representation possible in a printed image.

 

Setup

 Proof

 

A small proof will be printed on the media of your choice for your signed approval.  The proof is stored for quality control on future print runs, so you can order giclees as you need them.  If you choose to print larger editions, there are quantity discounts available. 

 

After proof approval, your giclees will be printed to the full size you ordered on fine art media.  Choose from Canvas, Watercolor Paper, Fine Art Paper, Poster Paper, and Photo Paper in Glossy, Semigloss, and Luster.  Enlarge your art up to 44" wide and up to 100 feet long, depending on your file size and media chosen.

 Coating

 

Giclees on canvas will be coated for protection.  Coating choices are Premier Gloss, Premier Matte, and Premier Satin.

 

Giclees on canvas can be professionally mounted on custom- made solid pine or poplar stretcher bar frames.  We can print the canvas edges in black or another color taken from your artwork, if you want your canvas stretched as a Gallery Wrap in your choice of depths.  Or regular canvas stretching can be done so your art can be framed in a Canvas Floater frame or regular custom picture frame.
