    Black and white giclee ink tone choices

    hahnemuhle logo
    Still River Editions has chosen to use Hahnemühle Digital Fine Art Papers exclusively for most of its archival printing. These papers combine the latest technology in digital paper making and coatings with the traditional look and feel of artist papers that have been used for centuries. Hahnemühle has a long history of paper making, since 1584, and is the top choice for serious artists and meets the highest standards of color range, depth, contrast, rendering and color gradation.

    Scans for prints (if required)

    We use high resolution flatbed and dedicated film scanners. After your giclee is approved you will receive one data DVD with your final prepared file(s).

    Types of artwork we can print include photography, watercolor, pastel, pen, pencil, paint, quilt / fiber art, etching, woodcut, linocut, letterpress, silkscreen, encaustic, anything else 2D.

    All flat artwork for scans needs to be unframed and unmatted. Paintings need to be completely dry. Dirty or scratched film or flat art may require additional computer labor at $75 per hour (we will consult with you if this is the case).
