Giclee (pronounced “zhee-klay”) describes an evolution in contemporary printmaking technology. Giclee art reproductions provide optimal color accuracy with archival quality inks and are printed onto various mediums. The most popular mediums include:
Premium Archival Matte Paper is a smooth, neutral-white, matte paper for high-quality fine art photoreproduction, and open-edition decor. The paper supports accurate color reprooduction and high-contrast, high-resolution output, and is acid-free for a longer print life with pigment inks. It features a heavy weight (230 gsm), thick base (9.5 mil), and an instant-dry coating that resists fingerprints and smudging.
Artists and professional photographers require true archival print media in a variety of weights and surface textures for their digital fine art and photography. Now Epson brings you an acid-free, 100% cotton hot press paper that is coated on both sides for extra versatility. This cylinder mold-made product features an ultra smooth finish on two sides (sheets) that is optimized for Epson Photographic Dye, Epson UltraChrome, and Archival Inks. Offered in a variety of sizes and formats, this fine art paper is not only acid, lignin, and chlorine free, it is also pH buffererd with calcium carbonate for a true archival sheet.
The bright-white, matte-coated surface of this poly/cotton blend canvas provides the wide color gamut and color-consistency needed to fulfull a wide range of art-reproduction and photo printing requirements while facilitating stretching and other forms of finishing and display. The relatively smooth Oxford 2 over 1 weave is ideal for photo and art reproduction.
These contemporary styled images are printed directly onto high quality aluminum with 1/8" rounded corners through a dye sublimation process for a clean and lasting final product. Available with a white or clear base, choose a Clear Metal Print to see the brushed metal through the image. Areas that are normally white allow the metal to shine through. Both our Metal Prints and Clear Metal Prints have a high-gloss finish that will quikly grab the attention of viewers by diplaying your metal print on an easel, or by choosing one of our mounting options.
“I highly recommend using Picture This for all your Giclée reproductions and custom framing. Duane is exceptional at reproducing archival quality Giclée prints of all of my original paintings. His scans and eye-for-color matching of my work have given me a great opportunity to offer different sizes and limited editions of each painting to my customers. It is a compliment to the work of Picture This when I am told “it’s hard to tell my Giclée on canvas from my originals!”
