Essentially the difference comes down to the process – the type of ink used, the quality of the paper and the type of printer. A fine art giclee print uses pigment based inks (not dye), archival or museum-grade paper and a wide format inkjet printer. Also let’s not forget that a truly superior giclee print starts with a high resolution artwork capture at 300 dpi or higher.
What can you expect from a giclee printing service? Print quality that is unparalleled. They provide noticeably better detail and quality than traditional prints, often making the print hard to distinguish from the original.
What size prints can you produce?
Using the very latest Canon PROGRAF iPF9400 we print in a range of sizes, from smaller than 100mm up to widths of 60 inches (1500mm). Our fine art prints are always produced using the 12-COLOR LUCIA EX INK SET which allows us to acheive amazingly vivid colours right down to neutral subtle black and white tones.
