Often referred to as either giclée prints or archival pigment prints, this method combines the use of pigment inks and high quality papers, as well as expertise within digital reproduction to produce prints on paper that are fully archival up to 200 years.
We utilise 44" and 64" 10 colour Epson SC-P10000 and SC-P20000 printers and Epson Ultrachrome PRO inks that produce incredible tonal graduations and are capable of a wide colour gamut. We can print up to 1600mm wide by almost any length.
This makes giclée printing a fantastic means of reproduction for all types of artwork including photography, paintings, illustration and design.
We stock a range of high quality fine art papers from Hahnemühle and St Cuthberts Mill:
- Hahnemühle Photo Rag
- Hahnemühle Photo Rag Pearl
- Hahnemühle Photo Rag Ultra Smooth
- Hahnemühle Museum Etching
- Hahnemühle German Etching
- Somerset Photo Satin
- Somerset Enhanced Velvet
- Somerset Enhanced Satin
We are able to advise which paper will best suit an artwork. From matte and textured velvet papers to glossy photo papers, there is a right choice for any artwork.
Printing a strip of your artwork is included in our pricing, this is often referred to as soft-proofing or strip-proofing.
This stage is important to confirm colours, fidelity and paper choice. It also confirms you are 100% happy before we produce the final print. We have made custom ICC profiles for each of our papers for controlled colour management.
When incorporating silkscreen printing over digital prints, a full-scale proof will also be made.
For reproductions of original artworks it is strongly recommend that we organise capturing the image with a professional input device. Simply put, outstanding giclée prints require an outstanding original file.
