The highest quality fine art reproduction available today. It is a process that uses a 12 color Inkjet printer, acid-free papers, and pigment-based archival inks. Mindzai Creative offers several different media substrates that are perfect for many different types of art. We print on rolls up to 5 ft wide and 100ft long. Giclée printing is priced per square foot, and includes color matching in the price. The best way to provide the most accurate reproductions is for clients to mail the original artwork to our Austin office where these products are printed. If this is not an option for you, the second best way to order giclée prints is to get a high-quality scan and email us the file. Mounting and stretched canvas available upon request. Please read below for a description of the different media types and giclée prints we offer.

Scanning your originals - We suggest you go to your local copy shop or blue print company and get the highest quality scan of your artwork. Scans must be at least 300dpi and saved as a TIFF in CMYK format with LZW Compression. If this option is not available, a Jpeg or PDF file will work too. Please open your scans and make sure they look correct, sized right, and cleaned up around the borders. From there, just email or upload your graphics with your order and we will do the rest. If you cannot get your original scanned, you can mail it to our Austin location and we will scan, clean up, and size your artwork for printing for a $25 fee per original.
