The Giclee Printing Process

  1. let create your  fine art printsDIGITIZE:
    To create your art prints the image needs to be digitized. This can be accomplished by taking a photo of the work and scanning or scanning the original art.

    Once digitized by scanning, the image file is analyzed for color balance, contrast, brightness and many other criteria. If scratches or dust specks are found, they are removed at this stage. See: Fine Art Prints Archive file for a before and after example

    (Optional) If your digital image is low resolution, we can optionally enlarge it in most cases and retain image quality through using a powerful software-driven process.

  4. PROOF:
    Proofing is simply a way of running test strips or small examples of the print to determine if the setup phase needs tweaking. It's important the Color Master have a good eye for color and value (levels of gray). When satisfied with the proof, it is presented to the client and additional changes are made or, if approved, we move on to the final phase.

    Now, the final art prints are sized and printed. It's interesting to note that the giclée can be reprinted any number of times at different sizes and always appear the same as the first.

    Finally, the art prints giclées, and CD with digitized image are delivered to you.
