 Giclée Fine Art Printing

Our Giclée Fine Art printing service offers superior results for full-colour or black and white photographs or artwork. 

We produce Giclée Fine Art prints using one of the finest large format professional printers available; the Epson SureColour p2000. Epson’s highly pigmented UltraChrome PRO pigment-inks produce Giclée Fine Art prints with the widest possible gamut. Even subtle shadows and highlights are visible when printing in black and white. New research from the Willhelm Institute suggests prints printed using Epson UltraChrome PRO Inks can have a lifespan of up to 400 years +, depending on a range of factors, including the media used and storage conditions. Pigment-based inks also ensure that prints are less susceptible to water damage because the tiny ink particles are water-resistant.


What is Giclée Fine Art Printing?

The word ‘Giclée’ was coined in the 1990s and is derived from the French phrase, ‘gicler,’ which translates as ‘to squirt’ or ‘spray’ (inspired by how the printer nozzle applies the ink pigments to the paper). The terms ‘Giclée Prints’ or ‘pigment prints’ refer to a print made using an inkjet printer as an output device.

Our Giclée Fine Art printing is archival grade and offers intense colour and vibrancy. Giclée prints are available on archival papers in sizes up to 60 inches wide and just about any length you desire.


Why Should I Choose Giclée Fine Art Prints?

Giclée Printing offers vivid colours unparalleled by traditional photographic printing and true-tone for black and white images. Our Epson Ultrachrome inks are specially designed for our high-grade archival papers and produce highly pigmented and lightfast Giclée prints. We stock a wide selection of archival Hahnemühle and Canson papers, providing a range of effects through different tactility and textures.

Genesis use Pigment inks rather than dye-based inks for greater longevity and stability. Pigment inks offer far superior resistance to light, humidity and moisture than dye-based inks. You can read more of the benefits of this type of ink here.

Exceptional quality materials twinned with our client-centric approach ensure that we give you the best results every time.
