The term Giclée is used for fine art digital prints made on inkjet printers including processes that use fade-resistant, archival inks (pigment-based), and archival substrates primarily produced on Canon, Epson, HP and other large-format printers. These printers generally use the CMYK color process.
Giclee printing is often used by artists, galleries, and print shops for high quality printing. The below advantages sets it apart from ordinary printing :
First of all, giclee printing tends to hold its colors for far longer than standard prints.
The quality of a giclee print is far higher than standard printing services such as litho prints.
Make no mistake about it; giclee prints are about as accurate as the printing process gets with current technology.
As mentioned above, copies created with giclee printing are just as good as the originals. So, artists and photographers can reproduce them on demand and sell them as many times as they like.
Perfect for Portfolios
If you are an artist or photographer, an excellent physical collection is essential. Giclee printing means you won’t have to carry around your original work and risk damage.
