Our Process


Place Your Order

Once your order is placed we begin producing your art piece using one of two printing technologies.  Your order is sent to our reproduction facility in Europe. 

All orders are produced by our facility, rated as one the best in Europe.  Artists travel from around the world to work with our producers.  We allow the artists complete control of how their work is produced.  No compromises are made to ensure all the pieces meet the artists' standards.  

Each artist has the choice between Giclée and C-Type printing on seven types of paper.

Printing

Giclée Printing or C-type Printing?

You don't need to worry about which printing method to choose since the artist selects the printing technology and type of paper to best represent their piece. 

A Giclée print is a high-quality archival inkjet print. The word Giclée (pronounced ‘Jee-Klay’ with a soft J), comes from the French verb gicler meaning "to squirt, spurt, or spray".

This is the preferred choice of illustrators, fine artists, painters, graphic designers and most other visual artists. Also, regularly used by photographers because of the paper textures and art & craft feel.

We use the latest best-in-class Epson UltraChrome K3 printers, capable of producing print resolutions up to 1440 by 2880 DPI.

We hand-picked 7 of the best-in-class archival art papers from the world’s top producers, including Hahnemühle, Harman and Canson. Each paper has different textures and color tones, so making the right choice for your images is very important.

By the way, the archival life of our giclée prints is 80 years in daylight! 

 

So, what are C-type prints?

It’s basically the darkroom in the Digital Age – true photographic prints made using chromogenic materials and processes but with the light source coming from a digital file, rather than directly from a negative. Light sensitive silver halide paper is exposed using an LED or laser light source and put through a conventional chemical developing process.

We use Chroma ProLab and RA4 machines, allowing ultra-fine imaging and optimal color reproduction across the spectrum.

We have a choice of 4 different C-type printing papers: 3 Fuji Crystal Archive papers, Matt, Gloss, Flex and Kodak Endura Metallic. Each paper has its own unique characteristics which how your image will look in print, so it’s very important to make the right choice for your particular image.

The archival life of our C-Type prints is 40 years in daylight.
