We exclusively use Giclée printing to produce our fine art, canvas and photographic prints.
Giclée (pronounced ‘Zhee-clay’) originates from the French verb gicler meaning “to squirt, or to spray”. Giclée is similar to your printer at home – but uses more inks to produce a wider colour range – instead of the 4 (cyan, magenta, yellow, black) used in most ink-jet printers and lithograph. Giclée uses light fast, pigmented based inks (we have two cyans, two magentas, yellow, orange, green and multiple blacks), the resulting prints have a much wider colour gamut and the colour’s themselves will last longer. Our printers also print at a much higher resolution – meaning sharper prints. Giclée can be printed on to various media, from textured and smooth fine art papers, to canvas and full gloss photographic papers.
Giclée printing has come into its own over the last few years due to the wide range of benefits over Lithographic printing and other digital printing techniques.
