    What is giclee printing?
    by skydog
    Is giclee just another name for printing on canvas or is it a special paper or procedure? If it is different then I need to go to an authorized giclee dealer/process?

    Most print rooms that I use print on gloss, matte, metallic and luster finish. Are there other labs that use other specialize...

          Western Australia

          After visiting one of this photographer's galleries.......

          last week and asking where his prints and canvases were printed I was, at last, delighted to discover a source finally in Western Australia. A PDF price list is available upon request.

            We do fine art giclee printing! :-)

            Hello everyone!

            Just found this forum site and LOVE what I see!

            We are a small, family-owned business in Massachusetts. What we lack in size we make up in quality, dedication and service. Being experienced (and working) digital photographers (fully understanding the costs and frustrations that can arise with dealing with printing services), we started investing in the highest quality equipment on which to print our digital images. When other artists and photographers began commenting on the exceptional quality of our prints, we decided to offer fine art giclee printing services and have been stunned at the response. (I guess alot of you have experienced the same frustrations??)

            Anyways, you can read up on us and our printing services on our website (click on the link at the top right for the printing services):


            In a nutshell, we use a fully color calibrated system and print using RIP software on Epson wide-format inkjet printers (can print 43" wide by virtually any length). The Ultrachrome pigmented inks are rated 80-100 years longevity. We stock all kinds of media from photo papers to fine art papers to PremierArt Water Resistant Canvas.

            We STILL get excited seeing new work come out of the printer and love working one-on-one with artists. So much talent out there!

            I hope this post isn't inappropriate. This thread asked where one could find fine art printing services so I thought it wouldn't hurt to post.

            Take care -

                A feature I like about this site is the ability to upload your image and see how it will look in the frame/matte BEFORE you buy.

                    Welcome and thanks fir the link, Fuzquia...

                    A while back I got very favorable results with a "print on canvas" order from They have numerous offerings including canvas stretched on a frame. I have had them do numerous print orders (including black and white and a 30"x24" print, which turned out great) and highly recommend their service.

                              I recently had a photo printed on canvas 20x30 by ezprints ( The quality of the print was excellent, but I had definite problems with quality control. The canvas was creased at reception. They willingly reprinted the canvas upon reception of the defective original. The second print delivered was someone elses...thus we had to go for print three. Needless to say I made no money on this endeavor and ended up selling at cost. Hopefully this is experience was not the norm since I did like the end result.
