Printing process and papers:
Our limited edition art prints are created “on-demand”- they are custom printed and quality checked by one of Manchester’s best fine art printing studios only once we have received your order.
What does “giclée” mean? French for a squirt or a spray, it came to be applied to the high quality inkjet printing that was first used to make reproductions of paintings, drawings or photos. Works of purely digital origin or software enhanced photos now provide the source of many giclée prints.
We use state of the art 12 colour Canon LUCIA pigment ink and large format printers. Choose between archival standard Hahnemuhle Photo Rag, a premium fine art paper with its own distinct texture; or Origin Matt paper which provides good balance between price and vivid print output.
