A giclee printing or a reproduction is a COPY of an original artwork that has a life of 100 + years with water resistance property. All Canvas prints
which produced by printposters are original Giclee prints.
The word Giclée is derived from the French verb gicler meaning “to squirt or spray”, Giclee is used to describe a fine art digital printing process combining pigment based inks with high-quality archival quality paper to achieve Giclée prints of superior archival quality, light fastness and stability. Pigment-based image has largest colour gamut. Giclee prints or gallery wrap canvas prints is the same as both produce from pigment-based inks which originally has water resistance property with the longest life.
Giclée printing is a process that uses fade-resistant, archival inks and archival substrates to print on large format printers. Giclée printing is often used by artists to make reproductions of their original artwork, photographs or computer-generated art for resale while preserving the original prints.
Many museums across the world have either hanging exhibitions of giclee or gallery wrap prints.
How long do giclée prints last? We use Epson or Canon archival inks and only the finest acid-free substrates, so you can count on your print lasting for well over 100 years. If your print is framed and hung in a location with no direct sunlight, it will last even longer.
So if you want original Giclee print then ask this question to your supplier
Which printer supplier is using?
Does he use original inks as this will only give original Giclee prints for the longest life?
Does the supplier is using acid-free Canvas (media)?
The supplier is not using any coat on the Canvas prints as the original Giclee print does not require any coating as original inks have all this property?
To be able to make such a high-quality Giclee print, the camera or scanner used to capture or scan the art must be able to do so with a high level of resolution scanner. To compare, most digital photos are recorded at a resolution of 72 DPI on the screen, or “dots per inch,” and the image file of an art print needs to be at least 300 DPI—because the more dots of colour that can be printed in a small area, the more detailed your final image will appear. This Inject printer produces 4800 resolution printing or 2400 DPI.
An upgrade from the standard giclée print, these exceptional art prints feature thick Canvas (340 - 400 gsm) made from alpha cellulous wood pulp that is acid and lignin-free. Prints are created using a sophisticated and patented digital printing process known as "giclée," which only archives from printer like Epson and Canon. No other printer can produce this print.
