Introducing Digital Fabric Printing @ POV
We have just finished testing our first range of fabrics for fine art printing. Our tests on Satin Silk and Chiffon have turned out beautifully and are now ready for production.
The available selection of fabrics for digital printing is well over 50 different types at this point, so if you are in need of some digital fabric printing the best bet will be to make a trip to our studio and check our our extensive set of samples. Our fine art fabrics generally come in rolls that are 17, 24, and 40 inches wide.
Pricing and additional info will be added to our quotes section soon, but in the mean time feel free to drop us a line and set up a time to come in to the studio.

Introducing WEO // Print on Demand Software for Visual Artists
We are very happy to announce our new print on demand software platform for visual artists.
Our aim was to create an elegant and robust solution that becomes an artist’s portfolio & store, while utilizing a completely on-demand production model across a wide range of products and fine art substrates.
All of this in a platform that also empowers an artist with a suite of marketing tools and provides the ability to fully customize their web presence down to the pixel level.
We are working with Charlie James Gallery here on Chung King Road to produce 2 wonderful limited editions of a couple of great pieces from Southern California based artists Sandow Birk & Elyse Pignolet.
We had both 30 x 40 inch gouache paintings taken out of their frames and scanned directly at 360dpi on a large format flatbed scanner to achieve an incredible level of detail.

We just finished up shooting some super large drawings for one of our clients… they are multi-layered drawings on duralar… very detailed and very much worth sharing…

As of late we have been working on several large wall graphics for Chase Design Group out of Los Angeles. Here is one of the many renderings for the project:
Each wall is 18ft wide and 9ft high… we have sourced an amazing adhesive backed wallpaper material that is extremely easy to apply and is repositionable… this will allow for an easy install on each of these, which are broken into 6 vertical panels…
We’ve been assisting our talented friend Ed Glendinning with on-site color management and proofing for a Hammer Museum catalog shoot. We are working on a fully color managed workflow that starts with a Phase One camera tethered to a Macbook Pro with an Eizo external monitor… We are bringing each image into Capture One, working a little magic and then shooting the files over ethernet cable to a 27″ Imac that is connected to our Epson 3880, where we are then creating color match proofs with the original art next to us to match to…
Its quite a nice workflow. The Printer that is receiving the files for the catalog on the other side of the world is more than happy to have the confidence of knowing that the files and corresponding proof prints are not only professionally shot at super high resolution, but are corrected to the original piece and can be used to more easily create an accurate catalog…
Tomorrow we begin production on new Alexis Mackenzie limited editions… there will be a 3 print set and, in addition, each print from the set will be offered individually. All editions are going to be a very short run.. only 15 sets of prints and only 15 of each individual print… each one will be signed and numbered by the artist.
Join our mailing list at POVeditions.com to get a heads up just as soon as they are ready…
The current exhibition at POVevolving Gallery was printed in its entirety at the POVevolving Print Studio. The show includes a mix between rich black and white prints and vibrant color prints – all printed on 300gsm Moab Entrada Rag Bright paper…
The exhibition runs through the beginning of June.
Just finished up some large prints for Doze Green. In a few short but busy days, we arranged to have his painting (Siddartha) photographed in a Chelsea gallery with a 22mp Hassleblad – shot in 3 pieces… then had the files transferred to us in Los Angeles… we stitched the image back together, color corrected, did epic amounts of proofing and produced 4 beatifully vibrant 30″ x 45″ prints on 250gsm Museo Max paper….
Super quick turn with great results… good times.
The POVevolving Print Studio will be producing all of the prints for the upcoming Sonny Kay exhibition at POVevolving Gallery. The show opens up on the 11th of February and is sure to be exciting with guest performances by several musicians including Cedric Bixler-Zavala of The Mars Volta…
We are working with Japanese artist Yosuke Ueno to release a very unique edition of prints based on a painting titled Sorazora. The edition, with the initial stages of the project underway, will be produced here at the POVprint Studio. We are going to create 15 prints of his Sorazora piece to be sent to Ueno… he’s then going to work back into each of the prints ~ with a combination of paint, inks, pencils and collage elements…
In talking with Yosuke, we get the idea that he plans to pull many of the individual symbols and characters from his other works and put one, a couple, or who knows, maybe all of them into this super unique edition… Here’s some potential candidates:
In the end, each of the 15 prints in the edition will be completely different. They will all be signed and numbered and sent back across the pond to us here in LA… where we will have each of them framed and prepped for release!
Good times at the POV.
If interested in being the first to see what we get back from Yosuke, drop us a line at info(at)povevolving.com… these are gonna be gooood for sure.
We have decided to take advantage of the incredibly easy-to-update nature of our new site and will be periodically posting little mentions of some of the projects we are working on…
We were contacted by artist Sonny Kay who did the album cover for the upcoming RX Bandits record… Sargent House, the label, wanted custom printed turntable slipmats.
They decided to also do slipmats for the upcoming album from The Mars Volta.
These are the images that were used:
The Mars Volta Slipmats are available for purchase here.
