Coming soon (I hope) - prints!

I've recently become intrigued by the idea of producing a few giclee (or do you say "geclee") prints of some older art. A giclee print is essentially a high-end inkjet print made using archival inks on archival paper.  

This interest was sparked by the desire to share a couple of specific works on paper for which I'm not willing to part with the original. A big part of the success is starting with a quality digital image, which adds considerably to the initial setup cost; this would most likely involve having whichever service I use do the scan using a commercial scanner. 

That being said, I'm thinking of doing a test print or two using a smaller image I can scan myself.

Informed friends (thank you, Marshall Harris and John Moore) have shared their experiences and suggestions and I'm hoping to continue to tax their generosity and good will!
