How do I get a giclée print?
Giclée prints are museum quality prints that offer extraordinary detail and the richest possible interpretation of an artist’s original work. The process typically starts with an original piece of art, which is is either photographed and scanned, or scanned directly into a computer. An extensive and specialized process of color correction, retouching, restoration, and detailed sharpening produces a computer file that is a close digital match to the original. Special inks on large, high-resolution “ink jet” printers produce incredibly true-to-life colors without the dot pattern associated with offset lithography.

How long does it take to get a print?
Print-ready files can be output in as few as 2-3 days, depending on our production schedule. The majority of projects have a 2-3 week turnaround if working from original art or film. Designed projects vary by complexity. Any project may be rushed in under one week for an additional fee.
What is a megapixel?
A megapixel is 1 million pixels. It is determined by multiplying the linear pixel height and linear pixel width of the image, giving a measurement of area. If you created an image on your computer that had 2,000 x 3,000 pixels, it would be the same as the file from a 6-megapixel camera. (2.000 x 3.000 = 6,000,000 pixels)
