- File Prep
Clubcard Vancouver has fine art printing down to a science providing gallery grade reproductions in vibrant colour on archival paper. From limited edition reproductions to art prints to be sold at artist markets or online, we are the shop trusted by artists to get the job done right.
Large size fine art prints are produced on archival grade Epson Hot Press Bright Fine Art Paper, an acid-free 100% cotton rag media with a bright white smooth matte finish. This fine art paper is acid, lignin, chlorine-free, and pH buffered with calcium carbonate to ensure archival integrity.
This fine art paper has an extremely-high colour gamut and excellent black density.
Borders On Fine Art Prints
If you would like to have blank unprinted borders around your fine art print supply your file at the final trim size WITH the borders included. We do not "add" borders to files. Be sure the size you order includes any blank / border areas.
The majority of orders are completed within 1-2 business days after proof approval.
- For fine art prints smaller than 17" x 22", please see our Fine Art Prints product.
- Unlike our smaller size fine art prints, large fine art prints can curl slightly due to several factors including the amount of ink coverage, humidity and size.
- Larger prints will be provided in rolled format.
