Smile Re: Giclee - What are some good sites?

I'm a fine artist, oil paintings and drawings, who recently bought a giclée printer. Its a large machine that prints on rolls of archival watercolor paper, photography paper, canvas, etc. The prints are made from a computer image, so you need a good digital image of your artwork first.
Be careful of printers who make 'fine art prints' but don't tell you what kind. They may be making serigraphs which are not as high quality as giclée prints. Thats what's 'poster prints' are.
Anyone can make the prints that has a printer, but I think artists make the best prints because we have the artists eye to best match the colors of the original artwork.

Re: Giclee - What are some good sites?

Hello and welcome. I run two large format giclee printers. They produce very impressive prints that are taken from digital art, high res scan or photos. We use Colorspan Displaymaker printers. I found a site that compares and reviews large format printers that might be helpful, but if you plan on just doing occasional print jobs, it would probably be more economical to find a printer in your area to do the job.
