Giclée Fine Art Printing
Putting the art into printing
Giclée printing allows us to create incredibly rich and detailed fine art prints. We use a specialist Canon printer, archival quality paper, fade-resistant inks and acid free fine art/photographic papers.
Giclée prints are environmentally safe as the inks are water-based and the paper is acid-free. We use long-life archival UV-safe pigmented inks supplied by Canon, however, a Giclée must be treated as fine art and placed away from direct sunlight.
