We are all about providing artists and photographers the ability to create their own prints.
Our service as a fine art and photo printing provider, places emphasis on giclee printing. Because we enable the artists to do it all themselves, they save time and money without sacrificing quality.
FinerWorks Media, LLC, established in 2003, is a color lab which specializes in services such as canvas printing and the production of prints on fine art papers. As a fine art reproduction & photo printing company, FinerWorks customers range from artists and photographers looking to order a few prints through our web based app to art curators requiring large print projects for the décor industry.
The primary product FinerWorks produces today is the giclee (“zhee-glay”) print on canvas and various fine art papers. Giclee is a term coined in the fine art print industry to refer the digital inkjet process which uses high end printers with archival grade inks and media. FinerWorks also offers a number of mainstream photo lab printable products and digitally press printed cards.
Over half of FinerWorks customers are artists or photographers. Some require high quality prints of commissioned work. Others are selling prints online and offline. Many of them utilizes FinerWorks’ free and automated order fulfillment service to have their orders drop shipped under their brand.
FinerWorks ships prints from two locations in the United States. From its headquarters in San Antonio, TX, FinerWorks manufactures and ships items such as prints on canvas, fine art papers, cards, wood prints and even posters. More common photo lab prints (c-prints), acrylics, framed prints and gift items are shipped from its commissioned photo lab facility located in Atlanta, GA.
FinerWorks abides by all U.S. and statutory employment regulations as required. FinerWorks as an equal opportunity employer, does not discriminate, implement child labor, or solicit involuntary labor from employees or private individuals, and provides a healthy work environment for all employees. All prints and products are produced using environmentally sustainable items within the borders of the United States.
