If its not proprietary information, what printer do y'all use to make these? Epson 9600 with pigmented inks?

i'm guessing that the if giclee's are that huge, and of much better quality, they're going to be far more expensive than the secondary market for the current 'flight...' prints.

only 15 of what was supposed to be the orignal run of the flight of the osprey prints were ever made, so there aren't actually 50 avail secondary market anyway. we haven't talked abot how much the new ones will be though.

oh, and i don't know exactly which type of printer's being used for these - we have a printer in-house that could do prints like these, but we're still having these done through a company that specializes in thsi type of fine art printing. they know better than us how to deal with problems that could come up, etc, etc. i think that epson might be the one we have in our office, though

i got to peak over aaron's shoulder on friday while he looked one of these over. the grin on his face makes me think he approves entirely. i'm crossing my fingers for a gaping maw giclee too... that lil' farting creature is my favorite.

I personally would like to see Molted Foal I or II as a giclee.

i think a whole moalted foal series would be great, until i can save up the cash to buy the originals.

Gaping Maw has always been my vote, for sure.
