We've switched from PC to Mac both in terms of our hardware and our imaging software. Apple's color profiles are truer-looking on the screen and have a larger color spectrum when printed. And we have just recently added two new large-format printers. This is definitely a case where bigger is better!
Sarasota, Florida (PRWEB) April 20, 2009
MP Artworks yet again upgraded their printing technology, keeping them on the cutting edge of ketubah (jewish wedding contract) printmaking. This means just another "first" for MP Artworks - first in 1996 to offer wedding ketubahs (or "ketubot," plural for ketubah) as giclée prints, first to offer "mix and match" ketubah designs and texts, first to offer a proof of personalized wedding ketubahs, first to offer custom options that are affordable, first to offer "sample" ketubahs so you can see it before you buy, first to offer a "digital" ketubah, and now the first to utilize such advanced giclée technology which produces vibrant prints with richer colors and more detail than ever before, without sacrificing longevity.
With this upgraded technology in giclée printing, artist Micah Parker explains that the equipment for the whole chain of production is new. "We've switched from PC to Mac both in terms of our hardware and our imaging software. Apple's color profiles are truer-looking on the screen and have a larger color spectrum when printed. And we have just recently added two new large-format printers. This is definitely a case where bigger is better!" The resulting prints are much more vibrant and accurate, showing greater detail as well.
Giclée printing is the newest technology for producing fine art prints. Like anything else, there are different levels of quality. A giclée is essentially an inkjet print, but there are differences from standard desktop inkjet prints. Typically, the printers are much larger, the imaging software used with the printer is quite expensive and very sophisticated, and special light-fast inks are used on the prints which, if kept out of the sun, will remain true for a long period of time.
According to Micah, "The main reason to consider a giclée ketubah for your wedding is flexibility. As a ketubah customer, you get more flexibility in customizing your ketubah, to make it more personal, since we print to order. If we "personalize" the ketubah's text with the "who," "what," "when" and "where" - in both English and Hebrew - it won't have that "filled in" look. We can very easily (and affordably) change the text and/or the design. And now, the print itself will be even more breathtaking."
Engaged jewish and interfaith couples can now look forward to more unique options, ketubahs with a more personal touch, and brilliant colors from MP Artworks, all at a cost that won't break the wedding budget.
