Giclée Archival Printing

About Giclée Archival Prints

Learn about:

These prints are created as limited editions using archival inks, hand made watercolor papers, and professional grade canvas with each checked for quality and approved by the artist. The laminated archival prints are often printed on a substrate of Fuji Flex polyester base material. The process involves the printer spraying micro pigment ink through fine nozzles to create a rich, smooth and detailed image. These inks are water resistant and most work is printed on American handmade papers manufactured by Entrata or equal quality 300 gsm.

Epson inkjet prints on Entrata paper have a projected life of up to one hundred years, of course other conditions will affect longevity. These prints should be treated like a fine watercolor original and be framed under glass using archival materials. All prints are sensitive to surface scratching and when not being displayed they should be stored flat in archival paper wrappings. If you receive your print in a glassine envelope, please tape the flap back to avoid damage to the print surface while removing it from the envelope.
