These are our preferred papers to get you started. We carry a huge range of specialty fine art giclée substrates, but in most cases these recommended papers are what our clients choose as well. You can read more detailed information about each paper on our Papers and Canvas Types Page. If you are in the Seattle area you are welcome to stop by our studio and explore our paper sample book, and if you aren't local you can order our Paper Sample Pack.
Please Note: We have a $25 Per Paper Type Minimum Order, and a $40 Total Order Minimum for first time Clients. All of our print substrates come in large rolls, and small individual prints create a lot of paper waste. Additionally since all of our print orders are very hands-on and involve a great level of attention to detail, we are unable to accommodate orders under our minimum. (Print pricing does not include Scanning fees. Refer to our Scanning Prices if you need to have original artwork scanned.)
Print and Image Sizing
When we ask for your image size & margin, we mean the exact size of your image and any additional margin you would like around it. If you want a print with your image centered within a specific or irregular margin (example 3 in the graphic), please setup your file to already include that margin and order the prints "cut to bleed/no additional margin" If you're not sure what size your image can print, please see our Aspect Ratio Calculator.
Substrate means the Fine Art Paper/Photo Paper/Canvas/etc of your choice. Some of our papers mimic textured watercolor or drawing papers, and some are smooth or glossy and better for photography. Explore our Papers and Canvas Types Page to read more about them.
The UV Coating option applies to Canvas Prints - all giclee canvases MUST have either a matte or gloss UV coating. The coating protects the surface of the canvas and enhances the color. In most cases we recommend the Gloss Coating, which is closer to a "lustre" and makes the colors very rich. Unless you have a special reason not to coat canvas, we will insist on providing some final top coating, or we cannot guarantee its durability.
UV Coating Fine Art papers: Giclee papers do not need a UV Coating, both the papers & the inks are archival without them. Coating the paper also changes its texture, so we don't recommend it. Sometimes artists will ask to have fine art papers UV coated (especially when reproducing oil/acrylic paintings on paper). We generally brush-on this type of UV Coating to create a "brushstroke" texture. Otherwise we do not coat our papers. Photo-papers CANNOT be UV Coated.
Canvas Edge Options
For Giclee Canvas prints, you can choose to receive a flat (un-stretched) print, or to have us stretch it for you. We offer two weights of Stretcher Bars: Standard 3/4" profile bars or Museum Weight 1 1/2" thick bars. All of our bars are custom milled poplar wood.
You also have a choice of edge color/treatment. The edges or your canvas can be White, a Solid Color (black/etc), or we can extend your image to create an Image Wrap Effect. When creating an image wrap, we don't crop any of your original image, instead we digitally create new image area to simulate the picture extending around the edges. Certain images do not wrap as well as others (for example lots of details that become too repetitive when repeated, or figures that are cropped partway through the original image) - if your image would not be a good candidate for an image wrap we will contact you prior to printing.
Clear Bags & Backings
Print Kit Packaging: We can finish your print order so its ready-to-go by including clear cellophane bags and matte-board backings to match your prints. The cost of the bags and backings is in addition to the base print costs.

Yes, we ship! We use UPS, Fedex and USPS, giving us the flexibility to offere the lowest prices and best shipping method to suit your needs. For paper prints, most shipping is about $15.00 anywhere in the lower 48 states in the USA. Finished canvas prints can get more expensive as they can get quite large and require more packing. We always ship as quickly and cheaply as possible. In most cases you'll see your prints within three days of us finishing the order.
COAS & Deckled Edges
Deckled Edges can add a nice finishing touch to your artwork. We use a special technique to hand tear the edges of your print to imitate the look and character of mould-made rag paper. Adding a deckled edge costs $10.00 per print.
Certificate of Authenticity can ensure potential buyers that a limited edition print run is indeed limited. Our COAs state the edition number, information about the artist and the original art scan, the print media used and when/where it was produced. Open edition prints can still benefit from a COA that states when the work was reproduced and a guarantee of high-quality archival inks, papers and canvas. COAs cost $10 to setup each image file, and $2.50 each to print.
