What is a Fine Art Print - Giclee Print ?
Fine Art Prints are made with high-quality archival inks on fine art papers or canvas using a high-resolution large format inkjet printer.
We also speak about Giclee Print. "une giclée" is a French word meaning a squirt.
By the turn of the 1990s appeared in the United States the first large format digital inkjet printers. To describe this technology, the French term "Giclee" was then used. This word described perfectly the principle used to spray the ink in the form of fine droplets spread.
Today Giclee Print defines a very high quality reproduction of an original artwork.
This technique of reproduction requires a delicate work and a know-how which takes place in three stages.
- The capture of the image with a very high definition camera or a professional scanner.
- The digital treatment of the image by an expert graphic designer.
- The printing of the image in very high resolution with a digital printer large format of last generation on an adequate medium (canvas or paper). Every print is realized and checked one by one.
A Giclee Print gives the guarantee of a high fidelity print (same tone and hues as the original painting) and resistance in the effects of the time. A Giclee Print uses special inks that do not fade with age (UV resistant and water resistant).
