“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.
“All I can say is that Cushing provides FIRST CLASS service. As an artist, I am very picky with how things are, especially if I'm having my work reproduced. I recently had one of my original artworks translated into a Giclee print (archive quality) on their German Etching Paper. I was super impressed with how CRISP and EXACT they came out. The Cushing Team and Erik Reczek and Rachel Batman were in close communication throughout the WHOLE process. Thank you Cushing for helping me bring this vision to life.”

“Having had an extensive career as a graphic designer and art director...I know quality printing. When I began developing my fine art work and my client base of collectors grew I knew I wanted to create another price point for my work. Cushing printing turned out to be the quality shop I was looking for in Chicago to print my fine art Giclées.”
