Painters and photographers: The advantages of giclee printing.

If you are an artist trying to increase income it is time to look at the opportunity to make more sales by selling high quality prints on canvas and watercolor papers. The term giclee denominates the latest on demand archival inkjet printing technology.

Choosing the right printing company is a daunting task. Because of the high demand for giclee printing services, many firms who already own professional large format inkjet printers for signage and poster production, are now offering giclees.

Fine art printing for painters and photographers requires a different skillset: knowledge of art, exacting color correction skills and a feel for the pros and cons of the many substrates.

Allpconline.com, Inc. is a fine art giclee printing company with over fifteen years of experience in the field. By creating a new giclee pricing model, we eliminated the customary set up fees usually associated with starting an edition. By doing so, we have lowered the start up costs necessary to create a few prints if an artist wants to test the market.

The lion's share of the giclees we produce is made on canvas. This is the same artist's canvas many are familiar with. A well produced giclee will rival an original in color and depth. Many artists even paint over the printed canvas and finish with a varnish, therefore creating unique, stunning works of art.

Watercolor artists have the option of using some of the same heavy weight archival papers designed for the original art: many of the watercolor reproductions are virtually identical to the originals.

Photographers in the field of fine art, portraiture and other subjects can now produce prints that are superior to silver halide technology. The other advantage is of course the much wider variety of media offered. It is no longer a matter of choosing matte, satin or glossy photo papers. In addition to canvas, textured and smooth cotton fiber media bring more looks and options to the discriminating professionals who sell high-end photographs.
