Giclee Unlimited Posters

My Giclee poster prints are a great inexpensive alternative to my limited editions.

The paper I use is a 192gsm quality heavyweight media. Specifically for fine art printing and display posters, it produces sharp detailed images with high colour saturation. It has a flat matte finish with a bright white base that produces great highlights and tones. Printed on A2 size paper only. Unlimited and signed, my posters are rolled in acid free paper and placed inside a 100mm diameter mailing tube.

Giclee Limited Edition Prints

Giclée is an art term used for a process which combines pigment based inks with high quality archival paper. In other words - fine art digital printing.

My Giclee prints are printed on A2 308gsm premium museum quality photographic paper, specifically designed for fine art work. It is made from 100% cotton that is acid, lignin and chlorine free with a ph buffering which makes the paper more durable. It features a coating that has been optimised for Epson UltraChrome pigment Inks and has a natural white surface that does not contain any optical brightners. The ink, when printed on this paper, is alsmost like velvet ... especially the colour black with its intense richness. I use the maximum ink coverage and the best intensity settings to achieve this 'velvety' look.

My limited edtions are ususally between 5 - 10 only, with the exception of a few artworks being 15. Each print edition comes with a certificate of authenticity which has details of the print, the date it was printed, the edition number, and a special serial number which I keep on record. Postage is flat only as this paper is heavy set and should not be rolled.

Printer

The printer I use is an Epson Stylus Pro 3880 A2 printer. Although quite slow (takes about 8 minutes per print) it produces amazing rich vibrant colours.

Here's Epson's description of this great printer... Epson UltraChrome K3 with Vivid Magenta Ink Technology is a professional, 8-color ink set with advanced magenta pigments that provide more dramatic blues and violets for an impressive color gamut. Its three-level black technology delivers richer blacks, outstanding tonal range and an unprecedented gray balance, all of which ensure outstanding black-and-white prints. Built on Epson's heritage of professional ink technology, this pigment ink set offers instant color stability. Colors stay consistent, whether viewed right out of the printer or decades later. With Epson UltraChrome K3 with Vivid Magenta, you get print quality and longevity that satisfies the most demanding professional.

Aritist's Studio | Gallery

My artist's studio has recently moved from Auckland to the small village of Waipu (Northland) where I now live. Unfortunately it is still work in progress but I do hope to have it fully operational near the end of 2017.
