GICLEE PETIT

THE LITTLE PRINT COMPANY

One of the common questions we get from clients is what is the difference between the digital prints and the giclée archival prints. So, we figured we would clear up any confusion so you can make the best decision for your prints!

Our giclée printing is one of the best print reproduction methods available. It is a process that uses a 12 colour ink jet printer, acid free papers, and pigment based archival inks. This insures that your prints will never degrade or yellow over time and allows a better longevity. Giclee printing allows the artist to provide a quality product for their customers that will never fade. We can also print up to 100 ft. long with this method, which is great if you are looking for large, high quality prints. We can also print giclée on canvas (mounting and stretching available upon request). Giclee printing is priced per sq. ft. and includes colour matching in the product price. The best way to provide the most accurate reproductions is for clients to mail the original artwork to our  office where these products are printed. While it's not ideal for artists put their original art in the hands of any shipping company, this is the only way to provide 100% match on the prints.  Or if you don't feel comfortable doing that, get a high quality scan and email us the file. If your print file is a scan of original artwork, please upload a digital photo of your original painting. This will help us ensure that the prints are acceptable before we print and ship the entire order. Be sure to colour correct any scan so it is an exact replication of the original piece.
