Giclée printing or fine art printing is one of the best fine art digital print reproduction methods available.
It is a process that uses a high quality 12 color inkjet digital printer, acid free paper, and pigment based archival inks. This ensures that your prints will never degrade or yellow over time. Giclée printing allows the artist to provide a high quality museum grade product for their customers that will not fade, and you can enjoy a beautiful art print for the rest of your life.
DIGITAL ART PRINTS
A significant advantage of Giclée printing is that once an image is digitally created and saved, additional reproductions can be made with minimal effort and reasonable cost. Any subsequent prints made from the file will remain looking exactly the same as the first as we use calibrated profiles for the media so that there is no variation in colours or quality from day to day. Digital files do not degrade in quality as negatives and film tend to. Another advantage of Giclée printing is that digital images can be reproduced to almost any size and onto a vast range of print media, giving the artist or photographer the opportunity to customize prints for a specific client.
