According to Wikipedia, giclée is a word coined in 1991 by printmaker Jack Duganne for fine art digital prints made on inkjet printers. He was specifically looking for a word that would not have the negative connotations of “inkjet” or “computer generated.” It is based on the word gicleur, a French technical term for an inkjet nozzle. Unlike home inkjet printers, however, the printers used by Nocerino Editions have seven to nine color cartridges and superior color management profiles. The result? Our exquisite fine art reproductions are unparalleled.
We’re open from 9:00am -5:00pm Monday through Friday and by appointment. You’re welcome to stop by the studio anytime we’re open. An appointment is not necessary however we always appreciate a heads up phone call or e-mail.
We provide a high res .tiff file at the actual painting size. It’s a backup of the file we keep in our archives. We also provide a reduced size .tiff file that is easier to work with on a typical home computer. The third file is a web ready .jpg sized to provide a clean image on screen but small enough to prevent unauthorized reproductions.
Turn times vary depending on our current work load. We typically turnaround most image captures in 3-5 working days and most prints in 2-3 days. We’ll do our best to accommodate rush orders. Call us ahead and we’ll confirm our current schedule.
With very few exceptions all canvas prints are varnished with Glamour 2, museum grade print varnish at no extra charge. The varnish provides protection from UV rays, dust and other environmental contaminants. Once varnished, prints can be embellished using standard artist acrylic paints. Be sure to let us know ahead of time that you plan to embellish the final print so we can discuss finishing options and techniques.
Yes, in most cases we can work with your existing shot and make adjustments that allow us to create an acceptable print. However, compared to an image captured with our Better Light system, you’ll most certainly notice a loss of detail and less accurate color balance.
When we do image captures, we ask that you come in to approve our color match and pick up your original. If you choose to rely on our color acuity, you may authorize in-house approval. Once the color is approved and printing is completed, you can rely on our full-service shipping capabilities and experience to ship your finished piece safely. We can send your piece to you or directly to your client.
We have a wide range of media to choose from including canvas, metallic canvas, matte papers, photo papers, watercolor and art papers. Our Hahnemühle Digital Fine Art Collection is comprised of true artist papers for art reproductions. All the Hahnemühle inkjet media allow for fine art prints featuring an extensive color gamut, best contrast and finest nuances.
We can accommodate file transfers using Hightail, DropBox, TransferNow and via Google Docs and others.

Absolutely. At Nocerino Editions we pride ourselves in the collaborative nature of our customer service. We work closely with artists to help them realize their dreams. To name a few projects: we have built backlit lightboxes, created large puzzles and printed on unusual substrates. We really do strive to offer you all the choices available in this modern, creative world.
Not necessarily. We use a technique called cross polarization to eliminate glare, gloss differential and specular highlights. The technique allows us to accurately capture all the detail and color regardless if the original has been varnished of not.
