Giclée printing is a method of producing fine art prints that uses specialized inkjet printers, high-quality inks, and fine art papers and other media. The art printing process typically involves the following steps:
Preparation of the digital file: The original artwork is scanned or photographed at a high resolution and the digital file is processed using specialized software to ensure that the colors and details of the original are accurately captured. Nowadays digital art and photography originating in a digital form is also common.
Printer setup: The printer is calibrated for color management and the appropriate settings are chosen to match the specific characteristics of the fine art paper or media being used.
Art Printing: The digital file is sent to the printer, which uses tiny droplets of ink to produce the image on the paper. This process is repeated for each color used in the print.
Drying: After printing, the paper is left to dry completely to prevent smudging or smearing of the ink. Canvas giclée’s are further treated with a UV-protective coating.
Inspection and finishing: The print is inspected for any imperfections and any necessary touch-ups are made. The print may also be signed, numbered, and/or titled by the artist.
Packaging and shipping: The print is carefully packaged and shipped to the customer.
It is important to note that Giclée art printing is a high-quality and more expensive process than standard printing, and it’s usually used for reproducing and selling limited and open edition prints of original artwork or photography.
