Printing is a tricky business. It's hard to find a place with reasonable prices and great quality. I held back from selling printed art prints before now because I couldn't find a quality printer in my area. I finally asked another artist where he got prints made of his art, and he directed me to Finer Works. I'm so happy that he did! I am blown away with the quality of their service, from the ordering to the packaging to the print itself. I started recommending them to every customer and finally decided to start using them for my business. So from here on out, all Citrus and Mint Gifts products will be printed with Finer Works. Since I am going to be using them as a printing service for y'all, I thought I would do a review on them so that you can know what to expect when you receive an order.
First of all, I love that they don't skip on the packaging. I've ordered art prints before where it comes in a tube and takes forever to flatten out. Or where it comes in a flimsy envelope and the corners of the prints are bent. There are no problems with that here. The outside package is either cardboard (for larger orders like mine above) or a rigid cardboard envelope (for smaller orders). Inside that envelope, the prints were packaged by size in clear plastic sleeves and then taped to an inner piece of cardboard to prevent any movement during shipping. Everything has come quickly and on time. I get a tracking number for every order.
Even better than the packaging, the prints are superb! The details on the prints are so clear and crisp and the colors are outstanding. I had them print a copy of a watercolor painting by my grandfather. When it came, we couldn't even tell that it was a print; it looked so much like the real thing! All of my prints will be printed on heavy weight (9.5 mil/230 g/m^2), acid-free, archival matte paper with Canon Lucia Inks.
I'm so excited to start this new adventure with Citrus and Mint!
