TRACY ART & FRAME

Guest
Has anyone out there jumped into giclee printing?
Or how about digital photo reseration?
Print on demand?

I have been doing quite a bit of research and it seems that the price/quality issues are starting to come in line.

We have an Epson 9000 from wizard's DaVinci.
recently we have been making prints for several artists. the printer might even pay for itself soon.

We have not taken the giclee dive yet, however, we are hoping to do so in the near future. We have a good artist base now that we are cutting (CMC) mats for.
We are looking at the DaVinci system. Were you already proficient at using Adobe Photoshop or did you need to learn it for this application?

Welcom to the Grumble.
If your thinking about the DaVinci system now is a good time to jump. My system uses an Epson 9000 printer. Wizard is now selling the newer and more expensive 10000 printer. One of the main differences between the to is the type of inks that the machines use. the 9000 uses dye based inks which give a better gamut of colors but are much more subject to fading. The 10000 uses newer pigment based inks which Epson claims to have a 200 year life span.

Here's the good part. The 9000 has a $1000.00 rebate on through the end of september and there are now archival pigment inks that are made to run through the 9000.

If anyone is thinking about the DaVinci system please feel free to give me a call.
also when you place your order for a DaVinci system please mention my name as I can get a $100 referal fee

Hello All!
I think the Wizard cutter and DaVinci Printer are great.
I have been using the cmc for 6 years and the Epson 9000 for 2. I print customers art work and borders, french panels and logos for our corporate clients. Just finished a job of 22 pcs. that called for reprint of photos in various sizes. Scanning photos and then enlarging them to outside mat dimension, I then fade it and use finished image as photo mat around the original photo. It looks amazing.
I am the Texas distributor for Wizard International. I will answer any and all questions about the cutter or printer.
Thanks
Doug Fairweather
