Our quality

Our quality

ArtsCart provides the highest quality of printed products from our digital databank files to archival inks to our acid-free materials. You will see the difference at first glance.  You are purchasing a custom art print rather than a mass produced poster. We will try to explain the difference here.

Mass-produced offset posters

Printed in large editions on cheap paper and produced only with four colours: cyan, magenta, yellow and black; these posters seem a little dull in colours and shades and with almost visible colour remnants that can appear as small dots. In offset production, one can print several hundred posters per minute.

Such posters are often greyish and not very durable yellowing and fade quickly.

Our quality - Fine Art Prints

On the other hand ArtsCart produces fine art prints. Let’s be honest – our production IS time consuming. In fact, it typically takes hours to produce one print - from digital production, print production to finishing and framing.

In our process, we use environmentally friendly water based inks. These 'water colours' ensure quality and durability. The watercolours are sprayed on in micro spray and we use 11 colours. The many colours ensure the contrast and depth, which means the art print is completely different than, for example, in offset printing.

ArtsCart also begins with higher resolution files...in fact, up to three times higher than normal poster prints. This sums up to a print product of a lifespan of 100+ years.

It goes without saying that production costs are far higher and much more time consuming. Therefore, Giclee prints, as the technique is often called, are usually quite expensive.


Your benefits as a customer

We keep the price down to a very acceptable level because we search for the best prices for our production materials and then past the savings on to you. Giclee printing in many cases can end up costing several thousand dollars before it reaches the end-customer, but we avoid this by supplier research . In other words, your end product has been produced at the best competitive rates possible and we pass that price point on to you.

Finally, what’s equally important – is that ArtsCart's form of production is much more environmentally friendly than any other. We are an ECO-FRIENDLY business.
