Fine art or giclee printing offer photographers and artists an affordable way to create high quality reproductions of their work for display or sale. The printing is done at a standard that allows every detail of the original work to shine through without compromise. Through a combination of state of the art scanning techniques, exquisite papers, and archival inks, these prints are often works of art in themselves and will last longer than other inkjet, silkscreen or lithograph images.
Unlike most standard printing processes which use either three colored inks (RGB), or four (CMYK), fine art printing uses roughly twelve colors to produce an almost infinite range of shades and tones. This allows for a much more detailed reproduction of the original work, capturing not only the full tonal range, but also allowing subtle changes in color to convey the texture in vibrant, crisp detail. This is particularly effective when reproducing paintings, as each brush stroke is visible. Even intricate, highly detailed painting effects such as stippling or impasto will be apparent in the print.
