If I don't have the print you want in stock, expect that the prdocution time will be about one to five weeks for canvas prints, depending on where I am in my production cycle. Normally I do one production cycle (printing and varnishing a batch of prints) per month. If you're in a hurry, I can often hasten print production when asked to do so.
Making giclees (high-end, fine art inkjet prints) is a laborious process.
Normally I print prints in batches to increase efficiency. I normally print a batch of prints about every three weeks – waiting each time till I get enough print orders to make it worthwhile to print. The printer's nozzles need to be checked for clogging before each printing, and the nozzles need to be unclogged if they're clogged, which requires extra time and ink used for the cleaning cycles. This makes it inefficient to print only one or two prints at time.
The same applies to varnishing.
There's a considerable amount of preparation for varnishing and clean-up after varnishing, so it's inefficient to set up my studio and clean up just for one print or a few prints.
I also normally order stretcher bars in batches, also to increase efficiency and to take get free shipping from my stretcher bar manufacturer.
It's because of these efficient processes that I'm able to pass on my savings to my customers and have the low prices that I have. By being efficient with production, I'm also able to produce more art, which also pleases my customers, as it increases the variety of art images that I have available for viewing and sale.
If you're in a hurry for a print order, contact me to find out where in my production cycle I am, and if I can expedite your order.
