How to take good care of your fine art and photographic giclee prints

Taking care of your giclee prints


What is Giclée Printing?

Giclee (or Giclée and pronounced 'gee-clay' ) - originally from a French word it means 'little squirt' and refers to spraying fine drops of ink or dye onto paper or canvas. You could say it's another word for an inkjet digital print process and you would not be wrong. The term is properly applied to fine art giclee prints produced on high quality large format professional inkjet printers specially designed to print high quality Fine Art prints.

Epson 9880 giclee fine art printer

We use the latest Epson Stylus Pro 9880 printers for our giclee printing. This state of the art printer prints up to 44" wide on heavy weight 100% cotton rag archival quality acid free papers such as Hahnemuhle Photo Rag or Somerset Mills Velvet Enhanced. We also print onto specially prepared Artist canvas. Using Epson's UltraChrome K3 Inks, the giclee prints are reported by the manufacturers as light fast for at least 75 years.

Providing quality giclee printing in the South West, we are based in Calne, Wiltshire (near Bath, Bristol, Swindon, Chippenham, Marlborough, Devizes) and within easy reach of Newbury, Reading, Hungerford, Cheltenham, London and the South West, exiting the M4 at Jn15 or Jn16.


Artist and Photographers using our services...
The quality of the prints is excellent, with really good colour, and much better than anything I've had previously from other bureaus... Thanks once again Gordon for a truly superb job you made of my prints. We are so pleased
The quality of prints on the archival art papers I get from Skylight Publishing has transformed the way I feel about my work and the way others relate to it. I really appreciate the time and care Gordon takes to ensure I get the best possible results.
