Giclee "(g-clay") is derived from the French verb gicler meaning "to squirt or spray".

It describes a fine art digital printing process that combines pigment based inks with archival quality paper to achieve prints of superior archival quality, light fastness and stability.

This is high quality giclee printing  using the latest, professional printers and vivid inks. Perfect for photographic, illustration, or painting reproduction.

Compared to most high street printers, who print at 360 dpi with 2 passes (the number of times a print head passes over a specific area), my print firm prints your image at 1440 dpi, with 8 passes, using a 10-colour pigment ink system profiled for accurate colour reproduction.

Prints are sharp, detailed, and vibrant, with an impressive colour gamut and vividness.
3-level black ink technology means these giclee prints have better grey balance and impressive mid-tones for true black and white reproduction.

Superb quality professionally produced prints of paintings printed on Hahnemuhle German Etching 310 gsm paper. This is a heavy duty textured paper that has a velvet like matt surface which reproduces artwork magnificently. 

All images are printed without borders to the edge of the paper size and are delivered un-mounted and un-framed.
