FINE ART GICLÉE PRINTING
What is a giclée?
A giclée (pronounced zhee-klay) print is a reproduction of a photograph or original artwork on an archival media using archival inks that, with proper care, will last a lifetime.
Is the ink and print media used archival?
Absolutely! Our inks and print medias are all archival quality, therefore, with the proper care and under normal circumstances, your artwork should last over 100 years.
What equipment is used?
We use a Hasselblad HD1 camera for the image capture of original art. This is a state of the art, extremely high definition camera with a flat lens - which means there will be no distortion on the corners!
Printing is done using a 44" Epson 9900 large format inkjet printer with Epson archival inks.
How accurate is the color?
Image capture and color correction is superior to other methods of art reproduction. However, you must be aware that due to the limitations of process inks, some colors fall outside of the printable color spectrum. During the proofing process, we work to achieve the look and feel in the print that is most appealing and closest to the original as possible. We unconditionally guarantee you will be satisfied with the results!
Capture once, print many!
With giclée printing, your image becomes your digital asset. Once your file has been cleaned-up, color-corrected, and proofed by you, we will archive the file in our computer bank. If you would like re-prints later, just let us know and we'll pull your file from the archive and print it - no recurring costs to you except for the printing!
Our guarantees to you:
Reproductions of any original art or photography will require the approval of the artist/photographer. Security of any original artwork, photograph or file format is guaranteed. We never share or release originals, files, or reproductions except to the customer who owns it.
All image capture and printing is done on the premises.
