“The new plotter allows us to make tests at the studio and have them under control more quickly. By trying to equalize our printer with Grieger’s in Dusseldorf, we can immediately check the result and correct the files without going through tedious international shipping, a process that can take several weeks.
Of course, it’s all pure theory because it’s proven to be harder than we expected!
We still print the final versions at Grieger in Dusseldorf, where the pictures are mounted under plexi and then framed at Frank Terhardt’s. We use the same Canon Inkjet printer that allows us to produce 150x190cm large format prints and has a color optimizer, a transparent coat that flattens the small ink drops without being too three dimensional, which makes the process of mounting the pictures under plexi easier.”
