There are two different kinds of prints represented here
offset lithography and giclèe. Offset lithography is the
kind of print most people are familiar with; it is reproduced as
a dot pattern, with each color being printed separately on a large
press. Euclid and Parkview are printed that
way; they were done for me at Reid & Witting here in Pittsburgh.
The other prints you see here are a newer process called giclèe,
which means spray of ink in French. There is no dot
pattern here, and all colors of ink are sprayed on the paper at
one time, by a press contolled by a computer. The giclèe
prints were done at Tri-State Reprographics, also in Pittsburgh.
Offset lithography produces a lower unit cost, but denotes having
many prints done at one time
Euclid and Parkview
are a limited edition of 500. The giclee prints can be done a few
at a time; Tri-State Repro will archive the scan, so more prints
can be ordered with a few days notice, and a corner of the studio
is NOT taken up by stored prints. However, the unit cost per print
Its nice to have both. Feel free to contact me with any other
questions about printing; I dont wish to bore those of you
who arent nerds with technical stuff.
