Want to make a million a year as a painter? Do Giclee Prints!
Do you two know what Giclee even is? The Giclee technique is not a screen print, as no silk screens are involved. Itís a bigger, better color printer than you could buy at the APPLE STORE. The resulting prints therefore have a higher resolution then Lithographs. It is a sophisticated, fine art production, utilizing the digital printer's highest resolution. The dynamic color range is similar to a serigraph. In the Giclee process, a fine stream of ink, with more then 4 million droplets per second, is sprayed into actual canvas (or paper). The result is similar to, but much finer than an Air Brush technique. Each canvas is carefully hand mounted on a drum that rotates during the printing process. Exact calculations of hue, value and density direct the four-inked nozzles. The method created a combination of 512 chromatic changes resulting in over three million possible colors of highly saturated, nontoxic water-based inks. The process offers a protective coating to ensure quality standards for the discriminating art collector.
Now, the printer is fairly expensive: http://www.ehow.com/how-does_5008222_own-giclee-prints.html

One might locate a DECENT printer in a business close to you and RENT its use for a single edition of your art.
THE URL BELOW is helpful. Itís from THE WIDE FORMAT PRINTER ORG:
That last oneís about the printer alternatives that Artists use to create big prints, 4 x 5 feet even. How can adigital printer even approach this size? Must be some factory sized printer.Not needed to sell art in the beginning. 2 feet x 3 is plenty big.
YUROZ a modern artist, does a lot of GICLEES. He is a modern Picasso, (who used the printing press and silk screen to reproduce by the hundred,) But the primary savings is in being a one man assembly line factory. Thatís where the artist makes a great deal of $$fast. And google image the works of YUROZ, A HIGH STYLE CITY GUY (BELOW)
GOOGLE "YUROZ" at the IMAGES SECTION using name YUROZ,
MANY GALLERIES represent YUROZís work as he has a prodigious output. But with GICLEE PRINTERS available, you could easily become a one man print shop like him. Or like Marc Chagall who also used printing presses, PRINTERS werenít available then. AND THE REALLY classical, nostalgic, KING OF KITSCH THOMAS KINKADE
Canít you smell the woody smoke coming out of the charming chimney?
SEE the AMAZING PRINTED out art work of JIM WARREN , the DOLPHIN OCEAN PAINTER SURREALIST, the last big artist on my list who does GICLEE PRINTING, who gets princely sums for a single piece of paper! This system keeps costs down, PROFITS HIGH. In other words, they crank Ďem out like weenies. But hang one on your wall, itís beauty. So my idea is, you get a printer and start a garage industry, sell in parking lots until you can get galleries to take your work and make your name and fame.
