Giclée Fine Art Printing
Giclée fine art printing is the benchmark for producing prints with museum-grade quality. The term Giclée comes from a combination of French words - "gicleur," meaning nozzle or jet, and "gicler," meaning to spray. Large format inkjet printers that uses small nozzles or sprays are utilized in Giclée printing, allowing for the precise matching of colors and application of ink, resulting in a high-quality reproduction of the artist's original work.
For my printing needs, I opt for Hahnemühle Photo Rag matte paper, made by a German manufacturer. This paper is considered by many to be the best in the world due to its 100% cotton composition and soft texture. It has a gently defined felt structure that gives artwork a heightened visual depth and a three-dimensional appearance. Additionally, this timeless, acid-free and lignin-free paper is highly resistant to aging and can preserve the artwork for a lifetime.
