What is Fine Edition Printing?

You will see on our website that we often refer to the idea of 

Fine Edition Printing over and over. The reason is the artists and photographers we are working with typically are producing edition work and we guarantee the edition will be produced with the same standards whether it is print #1 or print #50. In this economy we very rarely have a client that will produce the full edition in one production run. This is the reason we create both AP (artist proofs) & PP (printers proofs) before we start the edition. These proofs are used by both the artist & in-house to ensure the quality matches from one print to the next. The substrates we work with are not substrates that we anticipate disappearing to ensure we can complete and edition. In the event that we hear a paper is being discontinued we contact our artist using that particular paper to see if the wish to full-fill the edition or simply close the edition at the current print. Our service is meant to allow the artist to print as sales or exhibitions require a print. All files are backed up on one of our (3) 24 Terrabyte RAID 5 servers with redundant back-up to ensure your files are ready for print when you demand. For an extra fee of $2 per print ordered, we can also keep track of your running edition numbers for you in-house. This information will also be backed up to our RAID server as well. A few of our artist are too busy creating new work or trying to sell work to concentrate on the nitty-gritty business aspect of creating edition artwork.

So why doesn’t Booksmart Studio answer their phone or take calls?

Booksmart Studio has now become 100% on-line because when we are not on-line we are busy in production. Too often we were still receiving the dreaded phone call of “What ICC profile should I use with xxxx paper and xxxx printer?” Then only to be followed up with “What Media setting should I use?” and the followed up with many more questions. Finally, by the time we get off the phone we have to take 10 minutes to regroup to start production.

Do not me wrong, we love our customers. However, we cannot help everyone that is trying to learn to print or produce books. We are 100% truly dedicated to OUR CUSTOMERS and that does not mean the phone. We still talk to our customers on the phone, BUT we do not take initial phone calls to our main phone line.

After all, Eric is a full-time professor at RIT and is already balancing his time. So please do us a favor and email us if you have any questions. If you do not like this policy then I am sorry we have offended you, but we are too busy meeting deadlines for our wonderful customers.
