Giclée Printing and Materials
The name 'giclée' is derived from the French word for ‘nozzle’ and is pronounced ‘Zhee-Clay’. An unregulated word, it has come to be used for any fine art that’s printed by an inkjet printer, usually archival. There are four basic criteria that must be met in order for a print to be considered giclée, and these involve the print's resolution, the paper, printer and ink used.
All our prints come with a certificate of authenticity to ensure superior quality. They are produced using the giclée method of digital printing to Fine Art Trade Guild standards. Unless otherwise specified, they are printed on Hahnemühle Photo Rag. With 308 gsm and 100% white cotton, it is one of the most popular artist’s paper, its wonderfully soft feel boasting a lightly defined felt structure.
This acid and lignin-free classic meets the most exacting requirements for age resistance and is specially designed for Fine Art applications.
All our prints have been printed using
a giclée printer with a LUCIA EX stable 12-colour pigment ink system.
