Wow, LJ is really wonky for me right now. Don't know if this will post or not.

So, for you artist-types out there, and/or anyone who might have a clue...

Who do you use or recommend to get prints made of your art? I am considering getting some prints made.. and i'd like information for getting low-cost but still good quality options, and also for fine art giclee's.

I don't even know where to begin in hunting for that kind of printer, locally. Nearly every place i've found so far is equivalent to a Kinko's, or does offset printing, not giclees, and i don't know if that's remotely feasible for what i want done. I guess i could make a hundred phone calls and ask 'do you do giclee prints?' over and over, but my anxiety hates the telephone right now.

Anyway, any ideas are appreciated. :)

these are not giclee but I've been using Mpix.com for over 5 years. Their shipping rates suck for out of USA (and they only ship to canada for 30 bucks, ouch..) so you'd have to ship to yourself, then out if it was to another country... But besides that, I have not had any problems with their printing.

I go through DeviantArt, though I won't say they're the best for artist profits or anything like that, I like them because they get good quality artist prints throughout the USA pretty quickly.

But as for local companies, no idea. There's certainly no one in Australia as competitive as DeviantArt, but that's because Australia is lame with these things.
