True colors

True color representation starts with calibrated scanners, and monitors. We use custom printer/paper profiles to accurately reproduce colors, shadow detail and smooth tonal transitions. Even our room lighting has a high color rendering index for true color artwork views.

Once digitized, we color match to the original artwork via soft and hard proofing with color managed equipment. Hard proofs will be presented for each piece of artwork. More on our digitization process below.

 


  Giclee Printing

"Giclée" from the french word "gicler" meaning "to spray." Giclée prints are finest form of artwork replication. We only use Epson UltraChrome HD and K3 inks in our Epson fine artwork, Giclée printers.

Artwork digitization and printing details

Maximum size of ~38 x 50" can be digitized. Artwork scanned at 300ppi resolution by default. Higher resolution available on request. Canvas does not need to be removed from wooden frame.

Artwork with extremely thick or shiny surfaces my not be compatible with our digitization process.

  • Initial artwork scans are cropped and checked for quality control. Soft proofing within Adobe Photoshop for comparison of digital version with the original artwork is performed. Hue, color, saturation, shadows and blacks are all adjusted as required to match the original.
  • Digital images are printed on 5 x 7” proofing paper and used to compare with the original. Any corrections to the digital file are completed at this point. If only digitization is requested, the client can keep a final 5 x 7" proof to confirm print colors match the orginal artwork.
  • If printing of the artwork is requested on fine art paper or canvas then another hard proof is printed on clients paper of choice. Color of the proof is again confirmed with the original artwork.
  • Printing preparation continues to confirm printing size, and to add boarders (mirrored, white or black) for 0.75" or 1.5" stretcher bars
  • Image file is printed on fine art paper of client's choice.
  • Color match of print with original is confirmed.
  • If requested, stretching on canvas commences on standard or exhibition stretcher bars. Print is varnished if desired by artist
