THOMAS EDITIONS CREATES MUSEUM QUALITY CUSTOM COLOR, AND BLACK AND WHITE INKJET PRINTS ON THE BEST AND MOST BEAUTIFUL PAPERS AND SUBSTRATES AVAILABLE ON THE MARKET.
Starting with Epson Photographic Ink Technology and Epson extraordinary ULTRA Chrome HDR pigment inks, coupled with Canson’s and Hahnemühle 100% acid free cotton archival papers to achieve the best print possible. Thomas Editions’ processes all start and end in a color managed environment. Since 2001, I have been using Eizo CG monitors, regarded as the top monitor in the photo and pre-press industry. To obtain that best possible print, each paper and substrate has been carefully and expertly profiled. Paper Profiling allows the full potential of your images to come through on paper, in color accuracy, overall color gamut, maximum black and shadow detail. I run a boutique printing shop, personalized, and dedicated to your satisfaction. This type of service is not available at large commercial labs. They may have the same equipment, but they do not have my passion and experience for making beautiful prints. At Thomas Editions perfection, exact color rendition, color fidelity and tonally balanced black and white prints are what my clients have come to expect. This is NOT a “do everything” lab, I only have one service, making prints. Education is another way I help you deliver the best image to me for printing. I will work with you to achieve optimal quality from your digital file or scan.

Thomas Editions has been making fine art giclée prints for a select and small group of photographers since 2006, We start creating your fine art edition from your digital file.

There are a few differences between art prints and giclee prints. A good giclee print will always be on archival-quality paper. In order to make the best print possible, the paper must be 100% cotton or rag base. A poor-quality Giclee print will fade and yellow quickly over time.
