Thomas Burns grew up in Gainesville, Florida and received a BFA in graphic design from the University of Florida. After pursuing graduate studies at Michigan State University he relocated to Atlanta, Georgia.

The vintage travel images started as a creative side project and a way to connect with the history of Georgia. They are meant to evoke the feeling of travel posters from the 1920’s and 1930’s, showcasing landmarks as great travel destinations. The prints and posters are illustrated by hand and finished digitally.

Thomas’ work can be found in shops and galleries, local art festivals and online.


About Giclee Printing

Definition :
Giclee (zhee-klay) - The French word "giclée" is a feminine noun that means a spray or a spurt of liquid.

The Term : The term "giclee print" connotes an elevation in printmaking technology. Images are generated from high resolution digital scans and printed with archival quality inks onto various substrates including canvas, fine art, and photo-base paper. The giclee printing process provides better color accuracy than other means of reproduction.

The Process : Giclee prints are created typically using professional 8-Color to 12-Color ink-jet printers. Among the manufacturers of these printers are vanguards such as Epson, MacDermid Colorspan, & Hewlett-Packard. These modern technology printers are capable of producing incredibly detailed prints for both the fine art and photographic markets. Giclee prints are sometimes mistakenly referred to as Iris prints, which are 4-Color ink-jet prints from a printer pioneered in the late 1970s by Iris Graphics.

The Advantages : Giclee prints are advantageous to artists who do not find it feasible to mass produce their work, but want to reproduce their art as needed, or on-demand. Archived files will not deteriorate in quality as negatives and film inherently do. Another tremendous advantage of giclee printing is that digital images can be reproduced to almost any size and onto various media, giving the artist the ability to customize prints for a specific client.

The Quality : The quality of the giclee print rivals traditional silver-halide and gelatin printing processes and is commonly found in museums, art galleries, and photographic galleries.
