In preparation for the Good Morning Gloucester group photography show at Passports Restaurant (running now through December), I was hoping to work with a fine art printer because I have never been very satisfied with the results from my own limited experience in printing. I recalled having seen a video about Cape Ann Gicléee, created by Alicia for Good Morning Gloucester back in July, and had mentally filed the information for future reference. I first called Anna Eves and she was so helpful over the phone I knew I was heading to the right place.
James Eves was simply fantastic. His background is in fine art, which is apparent in the artistry he brings to his own digital art work. He is an absolute whiz in post production photography techniques and extremely generous with his time.
Stop in and see James and Anna’s studio located at 20 Maplewood Avenue, Gloucester. Cape Ann Giclée is a fabulous resource for all your photography printing and fine art reproduction needs.
From Cape Ann Giclée’s website: What is a “Giclée”? A giclee (pronounced – jee-clay) is a fancy term for a print made by a fine art inkjet printer, fine art printers have 6 or more ink colors (ours have 11), use archival inks and the prints are printed on museum quality archival papers and canvas. We use the term “Giclée” to differentiate it from a print made by a commercial printer that does meet the criteria above, like the kind of printers used to make business cards or brochures, those kinds of printers will not produce a “Giclée”. A giclee printer will reliably reproduce color consistently no matter how many prints you print because the print is produced from a digital file that does not degrade over time or use.
