Old Town Editions exclusively offers digital fine art reproductions for artists, photographers, museums, galleries, and private collectors. The type of printmaking we offer is commonly known as a giclee or what we like to call an archival pigment print.
As one of the original providers of giclees, Old Town Editions has a proven history of consistently providing high quality giclees to the Washington DC area as well as worldwide. We do not perform these services in conjunction with any other form of commercial printing. Our staff consists of individuals who have extensive backgrounds in fine art, digital printing, and photography. Our years of experience handling original artwork and priceless historic documents, allows you to be confident that your artworks are safe while in our possession.
We strive to stay at the forefront of digital printing technology as seen here from this quote from an article published by The Society for Imaging Science and Technology. “In 1999, one of these printing studios, Old Town Editions in Alexandria, Virginia, which was started by Chris Foley and Mark McCormick-Goodhart, was the first to use the improved-stability Lysonic i W2 hybrid inkset in an Iris 3047 in combination with the then new flat-matte coated Lysonic Standard Fine Art Paper. Old Town Editions was also one of the first fine art digital printmaker to implement a full ICC profile based color-managed workflow with soft proofing and with remote proofing for customers.“ full article
