Watercolor printing - Things to consider before ordering your print:
-Not all watercolor print service companies are the same.
Make sure they use high quality fine
art printers with 8 color
output and use true professional watercolor paper.
-It is especially important that the ink is of high
quality so that the colors hold up well. Also, keep your print from
direct sunlight so that the ink will not fade.
-If you have a photo that is damaged, we offer a restoration service
which you might want to utilize.
We have over 10 years of digital touch up experience and will be able to
restore even a very old photo
into its original quality, or close to it.
-Make sure that you will be refunded any costs if you are unhappy
with your watercolor print and want to send it back. Very few watercolor
printers offer this service. At Print My Watercolor,
we offer a full refund on any print.
Watercolor Print: Background
Artists around the world have for a long time been using
watercolor paper as a print material for inkjet printing.
The most common presentation of a watercolor print is to have it
framed with glass. Recently, Print My Watercolor
watercolor printing as a new way to display art for people in
general. At PrintMyWatercolor, we use archival grade print material
and a full color printing system. We include light photo retouch
into our pricing so that we can, if necessary, make adjustments to
the image file before we start the process of printing your photo
to watercolor paper.
With the look and feel of original art, any photograph may be
enhanced and reproduced on artist-grade watercolor paper, to enrich
and inspire. Watercolor photos are a great way to render a sense of
sophistication to a home. If individuals simply glance at a
beautiful watercolor picture, it will certainly release certain
amount of stress from the mind for time being.
Advantages of using watercolor prints
Not only do photos printed on watercolor paper
present an artistic appearance, but it also has some
practical advantages. Because it doesn't require glass,
glare will not be an issue. Glass is also a costly part of a
traditionally framed art piece. By eliminating glass, you will
not only save a lot of money, but also eliminate any glaring issues,
thus making your watercolor print look more vibrant and clear. By using
specially formulated UV inks, the photo-watercolors and photo-giclees can
last for as long as hundreds of years under ideal lighting conditions. Museum
quality lighting may be difficult to achieve in the typical home, but with
some planning, any home can have areas dedicated to art, which provide
near-museum lighting. Watercolor prints are a great way to display
your image if the subject matter appears close to the edge of the photo.
Unlike canvas prints, there is no need to wrap part of the images
around the side of the wood frame. This way the whole image is displayed.
Watercolor prints are also popular as gifts. With the digitization
of photography, image files are easily transferred from your camera
to your computer. You can then email or upload a file you like to
print to PrintMyWatercolor. We will turn it in to a beautiful
piece of art. Most users who order watercolor prints will give
them away to a family member as a gift. There are also a lot
of people who make watercolor prints of their spouse, their
baby, their pet, a family gathering, an old photo from their
childhood, etc. Other popular printings are of landscapes and
panoramas or reproductions of famous artist paintings. Watercolor
prints can really be used for any kind of picture printing.
