PRINT QUALITY

What is Giclée Fine Art Printing?

The term ‘Giclée’ is derived from the French word, ‘gicler’, which literally translates as ‘to squirt’ or ‘spray’ (inspired by the way that the printer nozzle applies the ink pigments to the paper). The term ‘Giclée’ was coined to describe inkjet printing in the early nineties and has remained a description for inkjet printing ever since.

The term ‘Giclée Prints’ or ‘pigment prints’ (as they are also known) denote a print made from a digital file directly to paper using an inkjet printer as an output device. Whilst the term is broad, it has come to be associated with prints produced to fine art papers.

Our Giclée printing is archival grade, exceptional quality and offers an intense colour and vibrancy. We are able to offer Giclée Fine Art prints on archival papers in sizes up to 60 inches wide, and just about any length you desire.

What is Lambda C-type Printing?

A Lambda c-type print is a digital print produced using Durst’s Lambda machine – a photographic printing machine that uses three lasers (RGB – red, green and blue) merged into one beam to produce digital c-type prints on light-sensitive silver halide materials. Exposed paper is then traditionally ‘wet’ processed using photographic chemistry, in much the same manner as traditional photographic prints produced using negatives with an enlarger in a darkroom.
