Preliminaries

You can ask for a printed proof of your files before we process your order. The first proofs of your first order (up to 4, shipped at the same time) are free and additional ones are $2.50 each. To get your free proofs, please use the code PROOF when placing your order.

Proofs are 8×10 printed on the same material we will use to print your final order. Proofs on canvas are always sent non stretched. Shipping for these proofs is free of charge and they are sent via regular mail. They normally take about 2-3 weeks to arrive from the moment you place your order.

When you receive your proofs, you can place your order via our website with the same files or corrected ones. 

We accept jpg, jpeg, png and pdf files.

Please make sure your files are in RGB, 8bits and that they are not over 300 dpi at print size.

We recommend between 150 and 300 dpi at print size. We can print from a lower resolution but we don’t recommend below 72 dpi. 

When uploading a file, if you see "high" under your image, it means it is at least 150 dpi. If you see "low", if means it is under 72 dpi which is not recommended.

Please note that if you upload a PDF, the system can't determine the resolution so will not be able to indicate if ok. Please make sure your file has enough resolution if you send a PDF.

If you are unsure of the quality of your file (colors, contrast, density, etc), we can correct it for you. Please note we can't fix the file if it doesn't have enough resolution (you'll see "low" in the bar below the uploaded image) or if your image is not sharp. You'll receive a before / after image via email for you to approve before we proceed with the final print. Please note this option will delay production by 24-48h.

 

 

Materials

Gloss canvas: It is a thick 350 gsm 2x1 19 mil, Ph-neutral, poly-cotton canvas that's perfect for photo or art reproduction. Combined with OEM archival water-based inks and the glossy surface, this canvas will yield the maximum color saturation, contrast and longevity available today.

Advantages:
High-saturation
High-contrast
Deep blacks
Archival
No cracks

Satin canvas: Our regular canvas although not a real high-gloss canvas is nevertheless on the glossy side. This new canvas is a real satin canvas. Besides, it's the same canvas with the same texture and the same general characteristics and obviously, the same price. The satin surface is ideal for precision printing of high or low saturation images where really deep blacks are not necessary. A glossy surface can produce really deep blacks like no other because there is little to no diffusion.

Advantages:
High-saturation
High-contrast
No reflections
Archival
No cracks

 

Cotton is still very popular due to its low price, but this material is not what it used to be. It is the material with the most defects per square foot of all the canvases available today. We wouldn’t be comfortable selling giclees with bumps and bad treads to our clients.

The Giclee Factory uses the very best poly-cotton canvas available today. Poly-cotton canvas retains the look and feel of cotton canvas – you can’t actually tell them apart – but without the bumps. bad treads, and sagging in dry weather. On top of that, our canvas is seedless for a perfect smooth finish without any dark dots in white and pale areas.

But don’t take our word for it: order a free printed proof today. That’s right, you won’t pay a penny, including the shipping anywhere.

Textured fine art paper: The textured fine art paper is an archival, Ph-neutral, OBA-free, thick and gorgeous 400 gsm medium, made by Strathmore. The special top coating of this paper gives it unique precision, contrast and color saturation for a matte medium. It is also much more resistant to water spills than most fine art paper.

Smooth fine art paper: Our smooth fine art paper is a bright white, 100% cotton, 250gsm, Ph-neutral, archival medium made by Canon. It is the ideal paper when you need a discreet medium that won't interfere with the image.

Our superb photo paper comes in two variants, satin and gloss. They both come in 10 mil thick white, acid free paper for maximum gamut and longevity. Easily framed or laminated, they also look tremendously good on their own.

We use sawtooth hangers like those below.

We use jointed pine wood so our frames are straight and node free. 

Printing

We use Canon and HP printers. We only use waterproof, pigmented, archival ink. 

Canon and HP archival OEM inks are rated to last over 100 years. So, with proper care, your print should last just as long.

Custom sizes are available for Pro members only. Please contact us for more details about the process and the extra fees.

The white corners will not be printed on the final giclees. It's only a visual effect on our image viewer. The color or image option will be printed all around your image.

Pricing

Huge buying power, automation, efficiency.

The Giclee Factory offers the best prices in the industry. Our giclees can often be half the price of our competitors and on some occasions, as low as a third. How is that possible?

There are many ways to offer a low price. We didn’t want to use cheap materials or send manufacturing overseas. So we took it upon ourselves to study every aspect of the industry to find more efficient ways to make our products. We chose this approach a few years ago and never looked back.

Yes we do. Details are below.
