WHAT IS GICLEE PRINTING?
Giclee is a French term meaning "to spray" this is in reference to the technique used by a inkjet printer during Giclee printing.
Not all inkjet printers are capable of producing a Giclee print. A Giclee consists of archival quality paper, high resolution images (we recommend 300 DPI) and pigment inks. Most low end printers use dye based inks which will fade over time compared to pigment inks, that paired with an archival paper, produce a Giclee print that will last for many years.
We use a Canon imagePROGRAF PRO-4000 which is a large format pigment inkjet printer, paired with our two favourite Hahnemühle Fine Art papers, our prints will last for years.
