PostSelling reproductions?

by beverlygriffin » Tue Aug 20, 2013 8:06 am

Hi,
I want to produce my own set of prints, but I don't really know where to start; should I buy a high-end printer and make my own? Would it be better to engage the services of a printer, and if so, what qualities should I be looking for? What seems to be the current fashion for mounting ?

Hello Beverly,
You can make your own open edition prints with an A3 printer. Limited prints require a professional to create them. I use a Brother A3 printer to make my own A4 and A3 open edition prints and sell them locally at reasonable cost. The printer cost under £300.

Hi
Just wondered whether the cost of cartridges is high for Brother Printer?
Thank you

Cartridges for my brother printer are £10-£12 each and are a set of four from Staples.
Depends on how rich and deep the image colour is to how many prints a set of cartridges will do.
I also use it to scan any of my artworks that are A3 or less instead of taking photo,s to put on my website.

If you are going to use a professional printer, make sure you check they know exactly what your expectations are. The more info you can give to a company reproducing your artwork the better.

Also, don't be afraid of asking for a sample print first. Most reputable companies will run off a small sample for you if you ask nicely!
