Printing Info & Specs
The textured finish and ultra heavy weight of this 19 mil fine art watercolor paper provides an authentic look and proper feel for reproductions of watercolor art. Watercolor paper can also add an interesting natural texture to photography and digital media. Collectors who like to handle out-of-frame prints will appreciate this paper's rigidity and surface. Watercolor Paper has a natural white surface and is neutral-toned, acid-free and made from 100% cotton rag.
Special note: With large gicle watercolor printing, each individual print can be different artwork. Unfortunately, the "art upload" button only accepts one file. If your order will be multiple files, please email the artwork or send via file sharing application like Dropbox.

Digital artwork can be uploaded to us through the above form. However, if your art file is very large, please email to firstname.lastname@example.org or via file sharing app such as Dropbox, Google Drive or any other service of your choice. It will be helpful if you refer to your order number.
If a digital proof is needed, please let us know in the "Messages / Deadlines" area, and our staff designers will send one within 4 to 6 business hours.
Digital proofs will alter turnaround by adding one extra day. Turnaround begins once art is approved for printing.
By default, we review bleed, resolution and size for all artwork before printing. If problems arise that we cannot quickly fix ourselves, a staff artist will contact you or email a PDF proof demonstrating related concerns. Our main goal is to ensure you are totally happy with the final prints.
Custom Sizes Welcome
Although we offer many predetermined sizes for our giclee watercolor printing, custom sizes are welcome. Basically, just pick the smallest possible size that your art will fit into and provide the requested dimensions in the "Messages / Deadlines" area in the above form.
All large format prints are considered full bleed or "edge to edge." Some refer to this as borderless. Please leave about a 1/8" trim area if possible, otherwise your image is slightly stretched to attain full bleed. We will preserve an borders or margins presented in the original art file.
A 1/8" bleed ares for large prints is required. However, since that is such a small trim amount, most customers send us art sized as the desired print dimensions. If we run into problems, we will contact you immediately. For people being extra cautious, please feel free to send art with ample bleed.
"Quality water color prints and good packaging." - Bernie
Watercolor prints 16x20 and up are rolled with Kraft paper and inserted into an extremely durable and wide shipping tube. Bubble wrap and/or extra paper is added inside the tube to prevent posters from moving. Smaller watercolor giclee prints are shipped flat.
