For painters and illustrators, print sales can provide an lucrative source of passive income as well as the opportunity to sell to prospective collectors who may not have the money to buy original works. Giclée printing is a revolutionary process which allows you to create the highest quality, most accurate reproductions of your work today.
My museum-quality, fine art giclées are made with an Epson 7890 which produces ultra-high resolution prints up to 24" wide. Epson's UltraChrome K3 inks offer a wide colour gamut with deep blacks, making deep colours and subtle washes easy to reproduce. These are pigment inks with a resin coating on each particle to produce prints with an even gloss and high durability across a wide variety of media. K3 inks have a lightfast rating of up to 108 years for colour and over 200 years for black and white, making them ideal for fine art applications.
I stock a range of archival papers from Canson, Ilford, and Hahnemühle. The papers I use are all certified acid-free and designed to meet the requirements of galleries and museums. My printer is calibrated, using custom ICC profiles to ensure my prints are of the highest quality and accuracy.
If you are planning to sell your work via a retail outlet or gallery, I can supply acid-free packaging materials and certificates of authenticity to go with the prints.
I also operate a print-on-demand service for artists interested in selling their prints online or by order. This is a more cost-effective way for artists to sell their work as it requires minimal initial expense - you only print what you sell.
I can receive files digitally via the upload form here or by any common file-transfer service. 300ppi tiff files are preferred but not essential. I assess all files prior to printing, so I'll let you know if there are any problems with your file which might affect print quality.
I can ship prints to anywhere in Australia. Proofs and test prints are available at minimal cost.
