What are Giclée prints?
A quick glance at Wikipedia will tell you that “Giclée is a neologism coined in 1991 by printmaker Jack Duganne for fine art digital prints made on inkjet printers.” That’s pretty accurate and it also sums up just how important it is to make sure that your artwork is printed on the best equipment available, using professional techniques and the proper color calibration.
We create Giclée prints for artists and galleries using the Canon IPF Series of printers – which means that we make high-quality, fine art reproductions of your artwork that accurately match the colors in your original creation.
What goes into the cost of a Giclée print?
It only takes a modest investment to digitize and proof your artwork, and once you do, you’ll be able to quickly and easily offer collectors and clients an affordable, archival quality, high-end reproduction of your original work.
With a minimum order of $25.00 artists can market and sell their work without having to make a large initial investment in the reproductions, and without having to worry about storage space and costs.
You don’t even have to worry about taking up too much storage space on your computer or network since our Giclée printing services also include file archiving in the set up fee. We will keep your digital file on our servers, making it easy for you to order new prints over the phone or via email.
Accurate color reproduction
Color accuracy is critical in the Giclée process and essential to making sure that our customers are satisfied with the quality of their prints. That’s why, before we create a reproduction using one of the best printers in the industry, we first use professional, calibrated art monitors and profiling equipment to ensure that we are working with the most accurate image of your artwork. At the time of capture, we soft proof your file on our profiled monitors to make sure we have a true representation of your art.
