Giclee Fine Art Printing by Stan Bowman
"Stan has published a number of prints for me based on my textured originals and in all honesty I can say the prints are works of arts in and of themselves, with luxuriant color, perfect resolution, and even the illusion of three-dimensionality -- on both watercolor paper and canvas. Stan's unerring artistic judgment, based on long experience and an artist's eye, has helped me immeasurably in making good print decisions along the way." Comment by client Nancy Neaher Maas, artist

SHIPPING A CONCERN?
Want prints but concerned about cost of shipping? Actually shipping is quite inexpensive and a box up to 30"x 40" anywhere in the US by FedEx Ground or similiar carrier can be as little as $15.
This applies also to artists who want to ship original work to Stan for scanning and proofing in preparation for final prints. Click HERE for info.
If you are an artist and are just starting out you may have seen other artists who are making and selling giclee prints of their works at art shows or in their studio. Now perhaps you have already created a body of origional works, perhaps paintings and drawings, and maybe have participated in a few art shows yourself. However you may have discovered that it is not easy to sell an original work. Your prices may be modest as compared to other similiar media artists in a show but you still find that visitors to your booth seem to hold back from making a purchase because the prices seem daunting to them. And if you are able to sell one or two original works at a show then consider yourself lucky. However at the end of a show you may just cover your expenses. So is there an alternative?
Many artists these days who participate in art shows or fairs realize the delimma of selling original works and have invested in createing giclee prints of their work that will sell at more modest prices. So a visitor to your booth who just loves your work but is reluctant to spend hundreds of dollars on a painting or drawing may find an alternative in giclee prints. The thing is that the quality of giclee prints have blossomed in the last ten years and a good print can be quite spectacular and appealing, perhaps even as much as the original. So artists are creating small runs of what they have found are their more popular works and are offering these along with their originals.
And there are other things to consider. Suppose at some art show or at your studio you sell an original work. Now the satisfaction is great but then when the work is sold it is gone. However if you have made giclee prints of it then you can continue to sell and get income off the original. Or perhaps you are not ready to part with an original even though many people have seen and admired it. If you have gone the route of making giclee prints then you can then offer these to admirers and make some sales while still retaining the original. In that way you have the best of both worlds.
So if you are considering making giclee prints, and you should give it some thought if you are an artist. that is where I come in. I am always willing to discuss printing with those who contact me as well as make suggestions that will be the best fit for you and your needs.
