Giclée Printing Process

Capture: Bring in your original art or photos. We will scan or photograph the work to create a digital file for printing. You can also provide the digital file and skip this step!

Setup for Print: The digital file will be color matched and corrected if needed. We will match it to your original art/photo work as close as possible to the printed image.

Printing: Your giclées will be printed to the size you requested using Epson pigment inks and fine art papers that best match your art/photo.

Coating Giclée Canvas: Your canvas giclées will be roll-coated using special canvas coatings that resist environmental deterioration and cracking

Mounting & Framing: Your giclées can be mounted on foam board or gatorboard; stretched on pine stretcher bars for gallery wraps in preparation for framing.
