How does the giclée proofing process work?

The proofing stage of the giclée print process is very important, and is your chance to see how your prints will look before the final button is pressed and your prints are produced.

You will find that most giclée print partners will make your proofs on to the paper or canvas that you wish the final prints to be supplied on. That way you'll know exactly how the colours will reproduce. This is the stage where you can ask for any changes to colours, hues and density to be made, don't be afraid to ask and chat things through with your print partner, it's what the proofing stage is all about. Once you are happy with the proofs, which should be reasonably quickly if your print partner had an original to match to, the corrections are locked in to your file meaning that every time you have a new print made it should look the same as the last one.

The proofing stage is usually undertaken by the print partner alone, when either a file is supplied to them or after they have created a file from your artwork.
