Addition to the Family

Canvas Reproductions

Size Matters!

We just rolled in a massive, 800 lb, Eco-Solvent, Grand Format, 64 inch wide Epson GS 6000!

We are excited to announce that not only do we now offer larger format prints but they are considered “green”  🙂

Usually this is when we introduce the caveat of  increased price – not to be!  The canvas price point remains the same in fact there may be a slight reduction – to be announced!  In addition to being green & maintaining the bottom line we will be planting a tree for each roll of canvas we purchase!

It’s a fun program and we’re excited to have you on board!

Thanks for your support look forward to continued growth – pun intended 🙂

4 Basic Questions for your Printmaker

ImagePROGRAF iPF8300

Fine Art Printing Checklist

Here are some fundamental questions for  your fine art printmaker :

•  If you do not have access to the print professional directly you need to find a new printmaker

1) Archival Inks - usually water based not solvent
2) Canvas make sure there are no OBAs - Optical Brightener Additives
3) Water based UV Coating applied to protect your canvas
4) Acid Free Paper

•  Groupon & Costco are affordable but don’t be duped – there’s a reason it’s so cheap.

•  If your print professional is not able to answer all of the above or he dismisses your inquiry move on.

Hopefully this checklist will adequately arm you with the right questions – build a solid relationship with your printmaker you’ll be rewarded with quality & consistency.

OCEANSIDE: Painter captures Highway 101 in ambitious project

I’ll be following this mission of 101 paintings Scott Prior has embarked on, I’ll be posting images as the projects evolve.  I ‘got the call’ to stop by and chat with Scott while he was working on 1st Street Bar in Encinitas July 13, 2010.

Scott’s goal is to assemble a Highway 101 Book loaded with 101 sites; wholesome for the eyes and stimulating for the mind.  For more information on this journey check out the Sign on San Diego article
