- About Cushing
“The Cushing team did a great job with my giclee prints. Timely communication, quick turnaround and a quality end product — it was a great experience! I would recommend them to anyone who needs printing services.”
Great question! Giclée printing means an archive-quality reproduction using pigment-based ink jet technology, typically on fine art papers and canvas. Send us digital files of your artwork and we can discuss materials. With the evolution of technology, the archival, high resolution ink-jet print can now be reproduced on a variety of substrates.
Selling artwork online? An art fair? Sprucing up the office with some framing? While we can help with “one-off” projects or small volumes, please consider bulk orders. Larger volumes save you money over time. One or two prints still requires set-up, production time and quality control. Comparing a single order to a slight volume increase, price is not far apart. OK, Cushing, what volume of prints is the right one? You don’t need to order hundreds of prints.
A handful of local printing companies in Chicago own ink-jet printers capable of Giclée printing. Fine, pigmented inks tested for archival properties complement our selection of specially treated fine art papers and canvases to produce these high-quality giclée prints.
This very careful process benefits artists looking to sell artwork online, enhance their portfolio or share work over email.
While Cushing tends to primarily work directly with other businesses, we are happy to assist individuals in any way we can. If you are a student, artist or individual with printing needs, please reach out to our sales team through the quote form.
“Having had an extensive career as a graphic designer and art director...I know quality printing.

Cushing printing turned out to be the quality shop I was looking for in Chicago to print my fine art Giclées.”
