If you want to improve the look of your lobby, office, store or restaurant, consider custom printed art. It’s beautiful and the prices are attractive, too! Your photos, blueprints, drawings and architectural renderings can be easily reproduced on paper or canvas. Here are some thoughts to consider when getting started with custom art printing:
Submit your artwork as a digital file. It can be a scan of artwork or a digital photo. You’ll upload it to your custom-art provider’s website, or provide it to them as a file on a flash drive.
Edit your custom art or photo. Working from a copy of your digital art file, you can use software like Photoshop® or iPhoto to enhance the image before printing. You can crop it to focus viewer attention where you want it. For example, you may wish to minimize an overpowering background. Or, you can experiment with factors like brightness and color saturation.
Print your art or photo on paper. You can print your fine art and photography on any number of matte papers. Offering high quality, you’ll select surface textures from coarse to smooth. A photo print or custom art that’s printed on archival paper is usually custom framed under glass.
Select a canvas print. You can also print your photos or custom art on canvas without a frame, but with a gallery wrap. The canvas print is mounted on a frame and wrapped around the edge. It’s then stapled to the back and hung on a wall. Viewers focus only on your canvas print, and not a frame.
Explore giclée printing. A form of digital printing on archival paper, giclée prints hold their colors longer than standard custom art prints. It’s thought to last up to 200 years before starting to fade. Giclée prints are often the choice of artists. Others like it for its museum quality.
