07/14/2004: "Giclee Vs. Litho"

I've decided to bite the bullet and make some reproduction prints of a few of my paintings. The problem is that I can't decide which way to go between giclee and litho. I like the quality of the giclee prints our local printer does, it just seems to increase the total cost of the finished print to a point where I don't know if I could actually make any money off of them. With the litho, the total cost would be less but you'd have to do a whole edition at one time to make it cost effective. With the giclee, once they do the scan and the color correction, you can just have them print off as many copies as you want, when ever you want.

I'm interested if any other artists are creating prints of their work if so, which method would you suggest?
