When should you start planning your prints?

Dear artist,

Do you ever find yourself starting on a new piece… before you’ve even finished the last one? For many artists, it’s just part of the process.

That’s why having a picture of what to expect at the end of your process can inspire you to push forward.

Whether you’re working hard to put finishing touches on a new piece, or you’re planning an exhibition (somewhere down the track), you don’t want any surprises.

So, when is the best time to plan your prints?

You can’t rush art

This really depends on you, your art pieces and whether you’ve printed or digitised your art before. Remember, your art needs to be digitised before printing can take place.

But there are a few factors you should consider when you’re planning your print:

  1. The size and type of canvas, or other medium you’ve used, as well as the art material will determine how fast we can calibrate the camera equipment and lighting. As I’ve mentioned before, the most important thing here is to capture the essence of the piece.
  2. Once we’ve digitised the piece and created colour profiles, we’ll print test strips, which can take around 12 hours per profile.
  3. We work with many artists around Melbourne and Geelong, so realistically, it depends on how busy our team is printing other pieces of art.

So, if we were to give you a realistic answer – the sooner, the better!
