About

 

Be Kind Studios is a giclee print shop and interactive mobile painting studio. It’s our mission to nourish our community and visitors with opportunities to engage creatively, to explore self-expression, and to be surrounded by art that inspires us to be kind to each other and our planet.

 

We’re available for mobile paint parties and art driven get together’s.  Each artist can paint a unique piece, follow a theme, or paint their own version of the same picture. We provide everything needed; the print on a board-mounted canvas, acrylic paint, brushes, and a smock to keep you clean. We do all the set-up and clean up, so you can just relax and have fun!

 

In the print shop, we create the highest quality, custom giclee’ prints on canvas, fine art paper, photographic papers, translit media and adhesive backed vinyl. All of our prints are created on archival media, using museum grade materials that are guaranteed to last over 200 years.

Archival Museum Grade Prints

We create all of our prints using only museum grade, archival, pigmented dyes. We do not use solvent-based inks. We are eco-friendly artists!

Our paper prints are crafted with museum grade, archival, fine art paper, made from 100% cotton rag. Our fine art papers are acid-free and PBA free. They’re guaranteed to last over 200 years, when displayed away from direct sunlight.

Our canvas prints are produced on museum grade, 100% cotton rag 8 ounce duck, in a 2 over 1 Oxford weave. After printing; our canvas receives a UV-blocking protective clear coat, in a washable, gloss finish. They’re acid-free, PBA free, and guaranteed to last over 200 years, when displayed away from direct sunlight.

By using our photo to canvas service you can create an heirloom masterpiece that will be handed down for many generations to come. Your canvas can be coated with a fast-drying UV-protective material. We add that coating in an almost invisible, flat layer, or it can be applied by brush, using strokes that mimic the lines and action of the image, helping the canvas to appear hand-painted.

 

Your canvas prints are then stretched onto a heavy-duty, gallery style bar, and are ready to hang, with no frame needed. We can also stretch canvas onto a thinner, standard bar, which is meant to be framed like traditional art. We can also print on fine art and photo papers, and help you choose a frame that will protect and showcase your one-of-a-kind print.

 

Be Kind Studios is a high-end, giclee’ printer. We provide printing and publishing services for the fine art and photographic community. We offer artist publishing services, and the ability to create limited edition prints. Print on demand means no more needing to purchase multiple lithographs to stock your shows. Square-inch pricing means the more you print, the less its costs!

 

Other services we offer include scanning and enlarging existing photos and art, and reproducing those scans on any of the media we offer. We perform color correction and other custom Photoshop work, such as monochromes, sepia tones, digital restoration and blemish removal.

About Giclee

 

Giclee’ is a French term meaning, to squirt. Our giclee’ uses fade-resistant, pigmented dyes on archival, museum grade substrates. Our printers use the CMYK color process, but have multiple cartridges for variations of each color based on the CcMmYKkmk color model (such as light magenta and light cyan inks in addition to regular magenta and cyan); this increases the apparent resolution and color-gamut, and allows smoother gradient transitions. With the ability to print up to five feet wide, Be Kind Studios offers the largest giclee format in the area. A wide variety of substrates are available, including various textures and finishes such as matte photo paper, water-color paper, cotton canvas, artist textured vinyl, and adhesive backed vinyl.
