Giclée printing (pronounced Gi-clay) is produced using inkjet technology and pigment-based inks onto archival-quality paper to create high-quality, long life-time lasting fine art prints. The prints are perfect for photographers or artists who wish to display or sell their work as a one-off or limited edition run.
Giclée prints are produced at 1440 dpi, with 8 passes.
We use special sustainable archival quality paper with a variety of finishes and textures to choose from.
Our Giclée printers use pigment-based inks rather than dye-based inks. Pigment-based inks have a longer print lifespan and can last 65-85 years without any significant fading.
Using the latest professional kit from the use of the ‘artist's favourite printer’ Epson for our giclee service. This provides us with a wide, maximum colour gamut, and allows us light-fastness while producing vivid colour reproductions with enviable saturation and depth. Our prints offer subtle shadow details, true blues and natural skin tones.
Our printer’s 3-level black ink technology means we can produce better grey balance and mid-tones. Blacks are deep and rich thanks to high-density Photo and Matte Black inks. We can offer fantastic quality gradations with reduced graininess achieved thanks to K4 and Multi Size Droplet Technology (MSDT).
Giclée prints are dramatically higher quality and are noticeably different from any other type of standard printing. The print is considered to last and not devalue like a normal print onto regular good quality paper. Typically it is more costly to produce this type of archival quality that may last up to 200 years.
