Giclee Print

By | Published | No Comments

A giclee print or reproduction is a copy of an original piece of art that can last at least 100 years. Canvas prints are all available. Printposters create one-of-a-kind Giclee prints.

Giclee is a fine art digital printing process that combines pigment-based inks with high-quality archival quality paper to produce Giclée prints with superior archival quality, light fastness, and stability. Pigment-based images have the widest colour gamut. Giclee prints and gallery wrap canvas prints are the same thing because they both use pigment-based inks that are water resistant and have the longest life.

Giclée printing is a method of printing on large format printers that uses fade-resistant, archival inks and archival substrates. Artists often use giclée printing to make copies of their original paintings, photographs, or computer art to sell while keeping the originals.

Many museums around the world display giclee prints and gallery-wrapped prints.

How long can giclée prints be kept? We use Epson or Canon archival inks and only the best acid-free substrates, so your print will last for well over a century. Your print will last even longer if it is framed and hung in a location away from direct sunlight.

Giclee printing is a digital printing method that produces fine art prints of the highest quality using specialised, high-end printers. This printing method has grown in popularity among artists and photographers who want to create limited edition prints of their work or sell their artwork in a more affordable and accessible manner.

“Giclee” comes from the French verb “gicler,” which means “to spray.” This name refers to the method of applying ink to paper in fine, microscopic droplets. Instead of a screen or blanket, which are used in traditional printing, giclee printing uses high-precision nozzles that put the ink directly on the paper.

One of the most significant advantages of giclee printing is its ability to create high-quality, accurate, and detailed prints that closely resemble the original artwork. Giclee printers employ a large number of nozzles, allowing for extremely fine details and smooth tonal transitions. They also employ pigment-based inks, which are more stable and lightfast than traditional printing dyes. This means that giclee prints are less likely to fade over time, making them an excellent choice for artists and collectors looking to preserve their artwork indefinitely.

Another advantage of giclee printing is the ability to create large, gallery-quality prints that can be sold for a premium. Giclee printers can produce prints up to 60 inches wide, allowing for the creation of large, wall-sized prints suitable for display in a home or office. Giclee prints are also more valuable and collectible than other types of prints because they are produced in limited quantities.

Giclee printing, in addition to its technical advantages, gives artists and photographers more creative control over their prints. Artists can use giclee printing to customise the size, colour, and tone of their prints to create a unique look that reflects their personal style and vision.

So, if you want an original Giclee print, ask your supplier this question.

Which printer supplier do you use?

Does he use original inks, as only original Giclee prints have the longest life?

Is the supplier’s canvas (media) acid-free?

Because the original Giclee print does not require a coat, the supplier does not use one on the canvas prints.

To produce such a high-quality Giclee print, the camera or scanner used to capture or scan the artwork must have a high level of resolution. In comparison, most digital photos are recorded at 72 DPI on the screen, or “dots per inch,” whereas the image file of an art print must be at least 300 DPI—because the more dots of colour that can be printed in a small area, the more detailed your final image will appear. This Inject printer prints at 4800 resolution or 2400 DPI.

These exceptional art prints, an upgrade from the standard giclée print, feature thick canvas (340-400 gsm) made from acid and lignin-free alpha-cellulose wood pulp. Prints are made with a sophisticated and patented digital printing process called “giclée,” which is only available from printers like Epson and Canon. This print cannot be produced by any other printer.
