Giclee Printing

Pamela Irving Studio + Gallery are now offering limited edition, fine art Giclee Prints from some of Pamela’s original paintings.
What is a Giclée Print
The word Giclée (said Zhee-clay) is a French word meaning fine spray. It refers to a print of the highest quality pigment ink-jet process, that offers archival qualities without bleeding or fading. The Giclée process is digital printmaking with an ink-jet printer, using a minimum set of 10 inks that places minute droplets of ink to create prints that cannot be duplicated by other printing techniques. Because there is no visible dot screen pattern, the resulting image has all of the subtle tonalities of the original.
In order to achieve a faithful reproduction of artwork:
A three part workflow must be adhered to;
1. A high resolution digital file generated directly from the artwork using a high quality capture devise,
2. An ink-jet printer with a minimum set of 10 pigment inks,
3. An archival paper.
The accuracy of colour, tone and detail is reliant on the technical skills and knowledge of the technician, particularly at the point of artwork capture. Pamela’s technician has over 20 years of experience in this medium
Pamela’s technician uses both a Hasselblad scanning and photographic system, a printer with an 11 pigment based ink-set and the highest quality archival papers available.
Pamela Irving’s giclee prints are printed on 100 % rag paper.
Limited to an edition of 30 or less prints. All are hand signed and numbered by the artists.
All work comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
