Making a Giclee print starts with a digital file of the image to be printed. Files created by photo-reproduction of artwork, or provided by clients who have sent them to us using an online service such as WeTransfer, or on a thumb drive. I can also have film scanned.
I like to work with Tiff files that are 300dpi. After the files have been sized, checked for correct tonal values and cleaned up, I do a test strip using the paper that has been chosen for the final print. This editing, proofing and tweaking is the process used to make great prints. There is a one-time file prep fee incurred for this service. I will then archive the file and whenever additional prints are requested, fees charged are for the print alone.
Test strip proofs are available for client approval for a small fee. Consulting and retouching in front of the main computer with provided files is also available.
When the prints are finished, they can be shipped anywhere in the US. I use very strong 6-8 inch diameter tubes along with thin foam for protection and Fedex Ground.
If the print(s) are going to an artist’s client, they can be signed first, before shipment.
