How We Achieve Our Fine Art Giclée Reproductions

The first step in creating a Fine Art Giclée Reproduction is to digitally capture the original art. U-Photo has developed a proprietary method of creating multiple high resolution scans or digital captures which are combined seamlessly to produce a digital file of exceptional resolution and sharpness.

The second step is image correction and manipulation. This is where we eliminate unwanted artifacts from the digital file. Flaws in the original can be corrected, and local color and/or density corrections to specific areas can be made. We strongly encourage artist collaboration during this part of the process as the artist’s input will greatly enhance the best reproduction possible. The artist can establish the final image sizes, border configurations, and select the desired output media.

Once the artist is satisfied with the workstation on-screen “soft” proof , we recommend producing a small Giclée print or test strip to proof the corrected image on the chosen media. Slight variations may sometimes occur between the workstation’s screen and the printed media, and this is the best way to address any reproduction issues, sometimes making it necessary to produce additional proofs, as needed, after any corrections are made. Once final approval is given, we have the artist sign the back of the selected proof, which will be held for color match to the final print.

Test prints on your selected media are recommended.
