Santa Fe residents are blessed to live in a community rich with cultural diversity, natural beauty, and a world-class art scene. Much like the downtown Railyard District, the area around Siler Road is quickly becoming known for its concentration of arts related activities. Meow Wolf, multiple theater companies, art studios, and craft breweries call this area home. Located in the geographic center of Santa Fe, the Richards Avenue Office Park is also home to Graphic Sky Printing, a boutique printing company preferred by many local businesses and artists for their quick turnaround, high quality, very competitive pricing and expert service.
In their new location at 3218 Calle Marie, Graphic Sky Printing is helping local artists realize their dream of turning their passion into a business, with high quality giclée prints and fine art reproductions, as well as the necessary promotional materials to help them grow. “Just like any other business...” owner Josh Weybright explains, “artists need to build their brand with high quality, consistent marketing efforts, through print, on-line and in-person networking.”
“With our great new space” Mr. Weybright continues, “we would like to welcome the art community to visit us and see how we can help them. We envision workshops, events and strategic partnerships and collaborations to help the local community prosper in uncertain times.” With the support of a team of talented graphic designers and photographer Paul Grabhorn, Graphic Sky has established themselves as a one-stop shop for artist and local businesses alike.
With the ability to quickly and accurately photograph artwork in their photo studio for a surprisingly low cost, many local artists are realizing that the power of giclée printing is within their reach.
“Once the piece is photographed” Grabhorn explains, “we then make any fine tune adjustments needed to get the digital image as close as possible to the original.” To ensure the best quality available, the digital artwork is printed using state-of-the-art methods on a variety of media, including fine art papers and stretched canvas prints.
“Our clients see that they can get more value by choosing a local alternative to on-line sources” Weybright explains, “not only are our prices very competitive, but we offer a level of customer service, knowledge and expertise not found elsewhere.” The level of detail, craftsmanship and quality that goes into fine art printing comes from every other aspect of the business. Local organizations and businesses have appreciated this rapidly growing company for years. From humble beginnings, Graphic Sky Printing’s owner is optimistic and excited about the future: “we have a company culture that fosters deep relationships with our clients. It is something that really seems to resonate with our community”.
Graphic Sky invites you to come share in the positive, collaborative spirit that makes Santa Fe a wonderful community to be in.
