Digital Art is rapidly emerging as a valid and popular medium. Our art printing is the perfect means for unlocking the potential of digital art, offering a wide array of printing choices on art paper, canvas, wood, metal, and other mediums. Some digital artists also mix digital printing with hand painting for fantastic results. Let us bring your digital creations to life.
Paper prints, particularly color prints, can have a life that ranges from a few years to hundreds of years. Most important to longevity is the type of printing process and how the photos are stored. While it's certainly not necessary that every print you make is of archival quality, for those prints that you wish to have heirloom quality prints are created that can be passed through the generations, you'll have to consider the proper photo process to use.
We offer archival printing on a variety of photo and fine art papers. Also known as giclee printing, our fine art printing services are sure to impress. Photographers and professional artists choose us because of our selection of papers, printing quality, pricing, and eye for detail. We will work with you to select the best paper for your project and pass along our knowledge to you.
The Definition: Giclee (zhee-klay) - The French word "giclée" is a feminine noun that means a spray or a spurt of liquid. The word may have been derived from the French verb "gicler" meaning "to spray".
The Term: The term "giclee print" connotes an elevation in printmaking technology. Images are generated from high resolution digital scans and printed with archival quality inks onto various substrates including canvas, fine art, and photo-base paper. The giclee printing process provides better color accuracy than other means of reproduction.
The Process: Giclee prints are created typically using professional 8-Color to 12-Color ink-jet printers. These modern technology printers are capable of producing incredibly detailed prints.
The Quality: The quality of the giclee print rivals traditional silver-halide and gelatin printing processes and is commonly found in museums, art galleries, and photographic galleries.
