What is a Giclée print?
The word Giclée (zhee-klay) comes from the French word gicler meaning “to squirt, spurt, or spray”. The term is now generally accepted to desc
ribe high quality art and photographic inkjet printing, on fine art and photo papers, using archival pigment inks. Giclée printing is perfect for fine art reproduction, photography, digital art and illustration.
What are the advantages of archival pigment prints (Giclée) over C-Type and Digital C-Type prints (RA-4 process)?
The first advantage is the archival permanence of Giclée prints. According to Wilhelm Imaging Research, pigment prints offer significantly better colour fastness depending on inkset and paper type.
I use a heavyweight Hahnemühle Photo Rag which is a beautiful matt paper with reproduces detail very crisply.
The second advantage is dynamic range and colour gamut (range of colours). If the work features vibrant, saturated colours, giclée prints will allow you to reproduce colours that are usually out of gamut in traditional RA-4 printing.
How long do Giclée Fine Art Prints last?
Archival inks and only acid free papers and canvasses for the finest and most long lasting prints. Framed prints under glass, depending on the paper, expected to last well over 150 years in good environmental conditions especially away from direct sunlight. Prints framed under glass with UV protection will last even longer.
