    Publishing

    Hello,

    Just discovered Art rage, after a while of doing some water colour work.

    I love the program and its potential and accessibility is amazing...(no tidying up when Iím done, and no expensive paper wasted on a bad painting.)

    How do you guys publish your work if you want it on your wall, is there a good website for canvas or printing on a good grade of paper?

    Iím eager to know!

    Thanks

    Dodgecuk,

    That's a question I have also; I'm glad you posted it. I would be most interested in ways I can do it myself with a printer, here. So I think it's about certain types of paper and the end product's size? Thanks for any suggestions.

    Have a look for vendors who offer 'Giclee printing' (pronounced zhee-clay)

    What it is

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gicl%C3%A9e

    example of a company offering it
    http://www.winkflash.com/posters/canvas_prints.asp

    This printing process will allow you to get 'one of' prints, instead of minimum runs of 500 or so plus.
    Also because its a squirt ink jet process onto a matte surface there is a lot of ink uptake in the paper stock which means you can often get away with a lower resolution file

    Very helpful information. I googled Giclee in the area of Michigan that I live in and found some local vendors that will do Giclee.

    well done

    It's always a good idea to check your printer for any file requirements before commencing a job.Shopping for a printer you like can be a little like shopping for a GP

    Always always listen to them as they are the expert in their field and many of them have a design background and are familiar with artists needs.

    I always get a small cheapie done with a new printer to make sure i'm happy with the output before blowing it up to a larger more costly one.
