I did a lot of research on giclee printers, First, I considered northeast Ohio. The most prominent such printer didn’t respond to a web inquiry via their own form. Too bad! There were several others that united around the principal of being really expensive. I looked beyond the region and encountered, what for lack of a better term, are giclee mills.
While doing all this research, I established my criteria: personal touch. I can soft proof for detail on my own Canon printer, and, I also can soft proof on the Canon imageProGraph 8400 printers Office Max have dumped in the laps of their weakly trained print center staffs. Still, it was important for me to speak with the actual printer. Although he or she was to be tasked with straightforward and technologically undemanding reproduction of my digital artwork, I knew I would have noobie questions about medium and finishing.
Stan Bowman’s one man Ithaca giclee shop came up in a google search. Everything quickly came into focus and then dropped into place. I initiated the first round of print jobs after asking him a few questions. Stan is friendly and a pro. His prices are much cheaper than the least expensive local printer. Five stars.
All this reproductive activity is focused on freeing my art work at its largest scale to land on the walls of discriminating collectors around the globe.
