Re: New Inkjet Reproductions Thread 12/15/02

I just have a basic Canon N650U, cheap but when the image touches the glass then perfect.
3-4mm off glass for blurry scan

Re: New Inkjet Reproductions Thread 12/15/02

Thanks Jason. The lip on my hp holds the board up quite a bit farther than yours, so I know that could never work. But hopefully this new one will. I'll let you know if we get it and it does what it promises.

Re: New Inkjet Reproductions Thread 12/15/02

Jason, I've got an Epson 3170 scanner. I can see in your example the problem. But I've never had that. Don't know why. Am tempted to try a similar test myself - need to find a rigid painting.....

Re: New Inkjet Reproductions Thread 12/15/02

I have an Epson Photo R220 and it is great. I need to go to Properties and choose Premium Glossy Photo paper before I start to print. The color stays on the paper but you may want to let it dry before you do anything with it as I found I need to let it dry several hours before matting, etc. This is a five ink printer. I not only make reproductions, I make my brochures on it too. It gives a very professional look. I do use Photoshop Elements to do any correcting of the image first.

Re: New Inkjet Reproductions Thread 12/15/02

Wow, this is an old thread to get dredged up! But as long as it's here, I'll put in another 2 cents. I was at a friend's studio last night- she took paintings to Kinko's and had them photocopied onto cardstock. Those color copiers have improved dramatically! I wouldn't say they are up to anything more than greeting card quality, but I'd bet it's not far off that we can make reasonably priced copies without having the expensive equipment at home. Gotta love that!

Re: New Inkjet Reproductions Thread 12/15/02

Some of my original L-Es were done on an offset printer. I recently discovered to my dismay that one of my prints on a friend's wall had faded
terribly. Has anyone else had that problem with offset printing? I now use
an Epson 2000P and do my own prints.

Most inks will fade over time. UV protection glass will greatly extend the life of a print.

"Once the printing of the edition, the size of which is defined by our customers, has been completed we destroy the images from all the plates, stones or screens that have been used to make the edition. This ensures that the print qualities can never be reproduced and that the print is sold in the true definition of the words Limited Edition." Curwin Chilford Prints

"Limited Edition applies to artwork produced in a deliberately limited quantity. Each item in the edition is identical and is an original work of art. The artist inspects each print before signing to ensure it is true to his/her original vision. The "s/n" Denotes a signed and numbered limited edition. The limited size of the edition enhances the value of each piece." Anglers Collection

"A non-production hand-painted cel created specifically for collectors. Produced in limited quantities, they are most easily identified by a "fraction" (39/500) in the lower right-hand corner. They were not used in a film, and have merely been created to resemble original production art, whether by reproducing a scene, or more recently, creating new scenes which often mix characters who do not traditionally "belong" together." Wonderful World of Animation

" An image for which we own the sole copyright, which will be limited to 250 identical signed and numbered copies, has never previously been reproduced in any other form, and will not be published again in the future." Nature Images

Although, I am sure this is one of those you say to-may-to, I say to-mah-to things, I think you will agree this random sample would seem to favor my definition over than yours. I didn't pick over this group-they were the first four I pulled off the net.

The way I see it, if you changed the size of the product and ran another group, you have changed the "size" of the Edition, and your are working against the structure that gives value to Limited Editions. Of course you, as an individual, are free to dilute your definition of LE anyway you want, just as you can fudge on use the terms Gicleé and Print. I stand by my definition.

The standard LE definitions was geared towards traditional physical plates, art and screens..... digital artwork has given new options to artists and new definitions to LE.

We print different sizes of the same art and edition each size as a separate edition. Our collectors have not complained, and they are the ones who count, eh?

Whatever an artist chooses to do, I highly recommend "full disclosure" on all prints created in all sizes. That seems to make a difference in acceptability in the buyer market.

We have large pieces professionally photographed if they will not fit onto a drum scanner.

You don't actually need a UV glass, you can choose UV pigments, we have a digital colour ceramic printing system which can print ceramic decal direct, the decal image become permenent after fired at high temperature, visit http://www.dcphub.com/process.htm for details.

Re: New Inkjet Reproductions Thread 12/15/02

Question: How do I locate a good giclee shop? I would like to make quality giclee reproductions of my oils, on demand, on canvas.
