FAQ

  • What is a giclée print? It’s an ink and print media combination that has been independently tested for image permanence. G&H Printing offers giclée prints on canvas and watercolor paper.
  • How do I make giclée prints of my original art? The first step is to create a digital file of your original art. From the digital file we make a color-matched proof for your review. Once you approve the proof you simply order the size, quantity, and type of prints you want. You receive a CD copy of the digital file along with the printed proof.
  • How much does a giclée print cost? We provide a detailed estimate when you visit us. Digitizing your original is a one time charge per image. Prints are ordered on demand. Pricing is calculated by the size, type and quantity of prints. Discounts apply per order size. G&H Printing also offers display options including framing and canvas stretching.
  • What are your standard stretcher sizes? G&H Printing stocks two styles of stretcher bars, standard (3/4” deep bars), and gallery wrap (1 1/2“ deep bars).
  • What can I charge for my giclée prints? The rule of thumb is 3 to 4 times your cost or one quarter of the original’s price, whichever is greater. Of course, the making of prints can have other rewards such as sharing your work with family and friends.
  • Can I create limited editions? Yes. Signed and numbered limited editions of giclée prints are an excellent way for artists to add value to their work. Hand embellishing prints is another way to add value.
