Fine Art Giclee Printing

Printing terminology for Giclee prints

For each of the Giclee prints shown on this website I have agreed the proof of the original with the Fine Art Giclee printing company which all print reproductions are based on.  

The term "giclee print" describes an elevation in printmaking technology. Images are generated from high resolution digital scans and printed with archival quality pigment inks onto various substrates including canvas, fine art, and photo-base paper. The giclee printing process provides better colour accuracy than other means of reproduction. The quality of giclee prints rivals traditional silver-halide and gelatin printing processes and is commonly found in museums, art galleries, and photographic galleries.




Resolution is an indication of the quality of a digital image, the higher the resolution, the higher the quality of the image.


Pigment inks

Pigment inks use pigments as the colorant rather than dyes, thus producing prints that are blacker and richer in colour and also have better colour retention.


Artist’s proof

Hahnemühle German Etching 310gsm paper

Hahnemühle German Etching 310gsm paper has a matt, velvety surface and is a warm shade of white. This archival quality paper is acid free and is ideal for highly detailed prints. 310 gsm (grammes per square metre) refers to the weight of the paper. For comparison, ordinary copier paper is only 80 gsm.



Certificate of Authenticity

A Certificate of Authenticity verifies the authenticity of the Giclee prints. It includes the number of the limited edition and is signed by the artist.

To ensure that all prints sold on this website are of a high standard, all prints are produced using Fine Art Giclee printing on archival quality paper. If you would like to know more about the Giclee printing process and how this ensures that the prints I sell are of a high quality, the process and the printing terms are explained below:
