Welcome to ONKart

ONKart was established to make high quality fine art giclees–both original giclee prints and fine art reproductions–available to working artists. We are located in the El Sobrante Valley, an unincorporated area of Contra Costa County, California, which also includes parts of Richmond and Pinole. We are located on the east side of the San Francisco Bay Area.

Original Giclee Prints

As well as coming to ONKart for museum quality reproductions considering working with us as part of your artmaking process. We work with artists to modify, crop, enlarge, re-scan and otherwise develop a final work of art, combining hand work and digital process. Consider Giclee a form of printmaking, like lithography, or etching. Or include it in your photography process for producing large negative films from which contact prints can be made. We can work with you on an hourly or negotiated basis. Go here for more information

Our print prices vary between $6/sq. ft and $15/ sq. ft. for printing on our standard supports (e.g. paper and canvas) plus any special labor required. If we provide reproductions for you, we will also provide minimum color correction. Extensive color correction will be charged at our graphic art services rate (see below). We are happy to print from images that you bring to us, in which case, we will print from those images as is unless you desire special color correction at our standard rate. The price for printing on specialty materials will vary with support cost and labor required.

If we are collaborating with you in your artmaking process, we will arrange special discounted prices for materials.

Scan or Photograph Your Artwork

Scanning Artwork:

Our preferred method for digitizing art is with our graphic arts flatbed scanner. Artwork of any size can be scanned at optical resolutions as high as 2400 dpi, making prints spring to life with the finest detail and making it possible to enlarge artwork many times. Color accuracy is assured through the use of scanner profiles created with state of the art spectrographic equipment and software.

Digital Camera Images:

Images produced with Canon Photographic equipment and studio lighting calibrated with ColorChecker software and expodisk light profiling produces high quality digital images with excellent color accuracy.
