Hi, I’m J.K. Dooley and I’m a professional
artist and we’re talking a little bit now about paper choices. When you have your Giclee
reproduction printed, you can always choose paper to print on. One of the advantages of
paper is it’s pretty simple to work with; most people are used to paper. It’s a little
fragile sometimes, like anything else you have to be careful. Sometimes it can be very
susceptible to picking up oil from your fingers or anything like that, so you have to take
some care when you’re working with paper as well. One of the disadvantages of paper is
it can crease and once there’s a crease in it, you really can’t get it out of there,
so you’ve kind of lost a really nice piece of paper. So again, it’s, so much of this
is a personal choice; paper you can print in a number of different sizes and you can,
obviously it’s lighter weight to ship. So, there’s a lot of factors like that involved
when you’re choosing your product you want think a little bit, a little bit of ahead
to your next result, your end result and kind of figure out how you want to spend your money.
So, obviously paper stores really well; it’s nice and flat on the side, so if you do have
a number of prints that you’ve made and are waiting to put in a show or something, that’s
always a good option as well.
