Why a Giclee?

Giclee prints are of interest to artists who wish to make additional high quality copies of their work without the traditional prohibitive costs of limited edition set up. Now, whether you want to make one or 100 copies of your work, your costs are manageable to meet the needs of your market.

Once your digital file has been captured and you are happy with the proof, additional on demand copies can be produced at a reasonable cost.

Your digital file can be reproduced at a variety of sizes on a wide range of substrates, from canvas to photographic paper to other fine art smooth and rough surface materials. This flexibility of printing options creates a wide open field to be further creative with your work and enables you to easily respond to the tastes of your clients.

We employ custom profiles, precise colour correction, and pigment printing on acid free papers and canvases rendering subtle gradations of colour and value that is beyond the range of other technologies.

Our Canon IPF 8300 printer uses 12 coloured pigments that are formulated for a wide colour gamut, improved scratch resistance and expressive dark tones.

Pigments are deployed through two high density heads, each with 2,560 nozzles per colour for a total of 30,720 nozzles.

The printer will accept paper or canvas up to 44” in width. The length of the print that can be produced is limited only by the size of the roll of paper. Paper is generally available in rolls of up to 50 feet in length.

Why a Proof?

The image that you see on your computer screen may be different than the picture that a printer will produce. All computer screens represent colour information from digital files in different ways. Photos viewed on your computer screen at home on an unbalanced system will look very different when printed. Your image will also look different to us when viewed on our screen.

In order to maintain colour balance between the camera, computer and printer the system must be coordinated and have the same colour profile. Our system is profiled to ensure colour matching.

We encourage you to have a proof made to show colour, tone, and highlight and shadow detail in order to ensure your satisfaction with the final product.

We will use the proof for colour matching the final print.
