The following guidelines will help you to maximize the results that can be achieved when creating a giclée graphic from a digital file.

1.      Make sure that the file you send is at least 300 PPI (pixels per inch) at the final print image size desired.  Avoid taking a low resolution file and "Re-sampling" it much large using Photoshop.  This will usually leave signs of pixelation.

For example: If you wish to have a final giclée print image size of 24” x 30”on paper or canvas, then your file, when viewed in Photoshop, should have a native (not re-sampled significantly)  image size of 24” x 30” with a PPI at that size of at least 300.

2.      Acceptable file formats are:

PSD (Photoshop) & TIF -  these are the best formats to use when possible.  JGP, GIF & BMP Can be used but usually are not the best quality possible.  Only Send PC Formatted CDs

3.      Since different computers, scanners, cameras, and printers have very different characteristics, color proofing the giclée print based only on your file is problematic.  For us to properly color correct the giclée proof so that it closely matches your original and or expectations, the following procedure is necessary.

From within Photoshop, select and printout, at full size, one, two or more significant 8” x 10” subsections of your image and print them on High Gloss Photo Paper and Epson Double Matte Paper using the finest setting of your desktop printer.  For example, see the diagram below.


We will use these printouts as our color guide for color correcting.  Please note that if you do not like these subsection printouts then you must adjust your image file using Photoshop, i.e. adjust color, contrast, brightness, saturation, etc.

What to Send Crimson:

1. Your File on a CD ROM - PC Format

2. The 8”x10” subsections printed full size on high gloss photo paper and/or Epson Double Matte paper to be used for color correcting: --->

Comment:

Except where you have digitally manipulated an original painting or have created your original digitally, Direct Flatbed Scanning Of Your Original Painting Gives The Best Results. 

Please note that the very best results are always obtained by having Crimson flatbed scan your work directly whenever possible or practicable.  Because we do not charge any additional scanning fees, when using our "Quantity Pricing", it is also much cheaper for you.  We can Flatbed Scan Originals Up To 40” x 50”.

Please call if you have any questions.
