Digital Color Copies  Minnesota

If you foresee yourself having to several color copies over a long period of time, then it may be better for you to get your own copy machine. This can be the more economical choice of the long run, as you will not have to spend money to drive to the copy shop, and then pay a premium per page on each one that you want copied. Purchasing your own copy machine can make copying documents and pictures a snap, and you will not break your budget doing it.

Choosing a Printing Method - Offset, Digital, Or Color Copies

 

Custom Poster Printing


Purchasing your own machine to make color copies can be pricey initially. While you can get individual copy machines, which come in a wide variety of qualities, you can also get multifunctional printer copiers which will also allow you to do the same things and more. These types of printers allow you to scan and immediately prints off what you have scanned. They also allow you to upload to the computer and save what you have scanned to it. If you do not yet have a printer, then this might be a better choice for you.

However, you may not need any computer hardware for long-term copying needs.

In the past lithography and traditional printing methods were used if the artist wanted to market reproductions of original artwork. While effective, these methods had serious drawbacks:First and foremost, a high output number would compromise the value of any reproduction. Second, the quality of 4 color copies limited the color rendition of such reproductions. Also, the choice of substrates was dismal compared to giclée. The advent of high-end digital printmaking has opened a new world for artists: more paper choices, better color, limited production.On a pure marketing standpoint, artists who have shows and lectures can now suggest giclees to potential buyers. Collectors in particular want to buy art that is not made in mass quantities. When buying a giclée they are assured to possess something rare and exquisite.Giclees are well established in the art world; they are bought and sold in world class auctions as well as in galleries. Many museums display giclees. Listen to your clients: I recently had a call from a portrait artist. She has a business where customers come to her for family portraits she makes on watercolor paper. She had a few inquiries regarding making copies so that more than one household could have the portrait of their loved ones. At the same time they asked for a quality print, possibly on the same paper. We reproduced the original and it was virtually impossible to distinguish it from the giclée. Now the artist was happy to make additional income and the families had as many portraits as they wanted!No matter what the market is, whether it consists of commissioned art or not, high quality reproductions can generate an additional stream of income given the proper marketing.How can you increase the value of your artwork?One proven method is to create posters (It has been done for a long time by artists and photographers) and sell the posters at art shows. This creates a buzz and facilitates the selling of your work in a poster format to be displayed in various locations. A well designed poster is one of the best advertisements!Second, create art and make high quality giclée reproductions without ever selling your originals. Make for example an artist proof edition of 25, sign it and release it as the only art available.If you wish to be able to sell your original you can do so and still increase the value of your art. Start with small limited editions. As soon they are sold out the value will increase. Always establish and maintain a personal relationship with every past, current and potential buyer of your art! Buyers connect emotionally with the art as well as the creator. They will be more receptive to collecting more work if they feel a bond. Use the InternetCreate a website with a portfolio so people can see the art. Add the URL to business cards, posters, postcards etc. Optimize the site for keywords you want to target (i.e. abstract paintings, oil paintings of flowers, portraits on oil etc.)The artist is encouraged to pre-sell the complete limited edition if a LE is decided. It is a good idea to track the collectors and notify them when the particular edition is sold out. Another advantage of having a website is to create a newsletter notifying people of limited edition publication as well as accomplishments and new art. These practices reinforce the added value of their current (or potential) purchase. Last but not least, ask for a Certificate of Authenticity from the printmaker.We have more information available at Our guide to giclee printing and marketing.
