What is Pigment Printing (Giclée)
Pigment printing is less of a mystery than you may thing. You probably already know that the word “Giclee” is French, with a loose English translation of “to spray”. But there is no magic behind a fine art Giclee print. A Giclee printer is not a printer per se, but rather an expensive high-end ink-jet printer with higher resolution heads and the ability to work with archival fine art inks and substrates such as, Giclee watercolor papers, Giclee canvas, and other art and graphics printing papers. By using “archival” inks, this printing medium preserves your fine-art and portrait photo print buyer’s investment; making your artwork a more attractive purchase. And just how archival is a Giclee artist print? There is a great deal of debate surrounding the longevity of Giclee prints, much of it a result of differing opinions on how to “correctly” test the longevity; the truth is, no one really knows for sure, but best guesses from testing place them between 70 and 100 years when archivally stored – less when hanging on a wall. Before we decide on the paper and canvas stocks we run through our Giclee printers, examine manufacturer specifications on longevity and we test the printing papers to make sure the print quality meets our stringent professional guidelines. We take the risk out of printing photos online, your satisfaction is completely guaranteed, and we have an A+ rating with the BBB.
