Giclees on Canvas
WHAT IS A GICLEE
Giclée, is used to describe a fine art
digital printing process combining pigment based inks
with high quality archival quality paper or substrate to
achieve Giclée prints of superior archival quality,
light fastness and stability.
Any image that is to be printed as a giclee needs to be created at a resolution of no less than 300 dots per inch (DPI). In the case of a photo or conventional artwork reproduction, that means that the camera or scanner used to capture the image or scan the artwork must be able to do so at 300 DPI.
When setting up a file that you will use to create artwork whose final output is a giclee print, make sure it is at least 300 DPI. This is to ensure that the final print has the sharpest detail and lacks any of the fragmentation that can occur with images less than 300 DPI.
All Giclees are printed onto canvas, sealed and come with a "Certificate of Authentication".
