For giclee printing its best to use the highest resolution version you have or can acquire. For example, files less than 1K (compressed .jpg or .png) in size are low resolution while files 5MB (compressed .jpg or .png) or greater are higher resolution.
For printing giclees that are large such as 36x48, it is important that the file resolution be very high such as file sizes of 20MB (compressed .jpg or .png) or greater. For printing giclees that are small such as 8x10, lower resolution files around 3MB in size can be used.
When submitting art to be printed at various sizes, use the highest resolution file you have. If you don't have a high resolution file, contact us for imaging your artwork to generate a high resolution file. For additional information on high resolution imaging, click here
When a giclee print is requested, the software will estimate the printing quality as soon as you select an image and indicate it's size. We base the estimate on the size of the digital image in comparison to the size you want it printed.
