THE PROCESS

 

Stone River Archival Printers, a true innovator in the archival fine art printing process since 1990 in Woodstock, New York have been creating museum quality archival prints for artists, photographers and galleries for more than 15 years. Using the latest wide format archival printers and state of the art scanning beds, we create stunningly beautiful prints in any custom size from original artwork, digital files, all transparencies and 35 mm slide formats. We carefully pre-press, color correct and proof all work to mirror the original image. Available in ultra smooth or textured museum quality papers, including clay coated or pre-coated satin and matte canvas or silver gelatin photo paper . . . including fabrics such as silk, linen and fine satin from around the world. For commercial uses, vinyl banner, enhanced matt board, clear poly and front and backlight films are also available. Call 845-679-6286 for a price quote and any questions you may have about the art of archival printing. All work is fully guaranteed with turn around time of 2 days if needed. 'Stone River Archival considers the art of fine printing a humanistic collaboration with the artist', where no project is too big or too difficult.

 

WHAT IS A GICLEE PRINT?

Giclee is a French word meaning, "a spraying of pigments" (pronounced "zhee-clay"). With the advent of giclee, the art of reproducing fine art works has become even more precise. Each piece of archival paper is carefully hand mounted onto a drum or flat-bed high resolution scanner. Exact calculations of hue, value and density are acheived by directing over six million droplets of pigment through forty-eight printer nozzles. This produces a combination of 512 chromatic hue possibilities with over three million color possibilities. Giclees have the highest apparent resolution today...as high as 4000 dpi printflow using a variable dot size to create the density of color and saturation. In addition, since no screens are used, the prints have a higher apparent resolution than photography,lithographs and also a color range that exceeds that of serigraphy. Displaying the full color spectrum, archival giclee prints capture every nuance of an original and have gained worldwide acceptance from artists, museums collectors and the finest galleries.
