Purchasing a printable and printing it at home on your printer, or having it printed at the local stationary store will be slightly cheaper, however, the lifespan and quality will be greatly reduced.
This is due to using standard printing methods instead of giclée like what is used by my print suppliers, and quality of papers.
See below for visual examples of the difference between the printing methods.

The file comes as a high quality jpg. Original paintings are generally scanned at 600dpi or 1200dpi depending on painting size.
Paintings are scanned with an Epson Perfection V600 with the addition of Silverfast scanning software to get the best scanning results.
Colour profiles between monitor, scanner, and my print manufacturer are calibrated, so you can be sure to receive the highest quality printable close to the original painting.
