|Giclée Prints : The term "giclée print" connotes an elevation in printmaking technology. Digital images captured with extremely high-resolution scans are printed with archival quality inks onto various substrates including canvas, fine art, and photo-base papers. The giclée printing process provides better color accuracy and detail than other means of reproduction.|
Quality : The giclée print now rivals traditional silver-halide and gelatin printing processes and is commonly found in museums, art galleries, and photographic galleries. Numerous examples of giclée prints can be found in New York City at the Metropolitan Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, and the trendy Chelsea Galleries.
|Fine Art Market : There is an acceptance of giclée prints in the fine art market as long as the prints do not look "digital". The technology has advanced beyond traditional methods to assure that digitization artifacts are no longer an obstacle.
Photographic Market : Major photographers now use the giclée printing process. Photographers include Philip-Lorca Di Corcia, Catherine Opie, William Eggleston, William Wegman, James Rosenquist, & Marc Riboud.
