From the website:

"About Giclee Printing
Giclee (jhee-clay) - Derived from the french verb gicler meaning to squirt. The term giclee print typically connotes a certain elevation in printmaking technology. Images are high resolution digital scans printed with archival quality inks onto various substrates. The giclee process provides better color accuracy than other means of reproduction.
Giclee prints (also known as Iris prints) are advantageous to artists who find it not feasible to mass produce their work, but want to reproduce their art as needed.

Once an image is archived, additional reproductions can be made with minimal effort and cost. Thus the up-front cost of mass production is eliminated and printing is done on demand.

Another tremendous advantage to Giclee printing is that artwork can be reproduced to almost any size and on various media, giving the artist the ability to customize prints for a specific client."

do you think it would be possible, or maybe a better word is advisable, to cut roll canvas to 8 1/2 x 11 to feed to an epson 740 ? don't think there's epson brand precut @ that size; and tho it pains my wallet to admit, their brands seem to look best.

Hey steve i've got an epson 9600 to, its an awesome printer. I use canvas, medium weight textured fine art paper, glossy photo and epson premium luster. I usually spray my prints with a krylon liquid laminate or bulldog ultra, These work very well, I have actually run prints under water just to test the protection and it is absolutely waterproof, very nice indeed. One thing I will note is epson now has some profiles for the 9600 on there site for a few different papers that epson makes, These profiles work great for color matching prints.
