Why we don’t print photography in our giclee department
We calibrate all of our giclée print equipment specifically for the reproduction of paintings, watercolours, drawings and digitally created art. All print shops are not equal, we specifically use matte inks in most all of our reproduction work, printed on matte papers. Where as photography printers use photo inks (satin or gloss) for printing on gloss or coated papers.
We do not carry photo papers or use photo inks in our studio for the reproduction of photography. We have instead dedicated our focus exclusively on the support and reproduction of paintings, drawings and digitally created art. Apples to oranges.
We offer a wide range of archival museum grade fine art papers and canvases (mostly matte) for reproducing paintings and drawings. These papers are equal to the high quality papers available to artists at art supply stores, but are coated (matte) with a special receiver to accept high detailed sprayed pigment inks.
We have focused our skills and decisively specialized in the printing of fine art paintings niche to support local and national visual artists in a field often overlooked due to changing and evolving technologies in modern fine art print reproductions.
As much as we respect the dedication and creative process of modern digital photography we are just not set-up or experts in that field. There are many local shops that offer high quality photography services.
