Combining our team’s extensive printing knowledge with investment in the highest quality technology, our Giclée Fine Art printing service offers the very best possible results for full colour or black and white photographs or artwork.
We produce Giclée Fine Art prints using the Epson Stylus Pro 11880; one of the finest large format professional printers available. Utilising Epson’s highly pigmented Ultrachrome ink, prints produced on the 11880 have the widest possible gamut and even subtle shadows and highlights are visible when printing in black and white.
What is Giclée Fine Art Printing?
The term ‘Giclée’ is derived from the French word, ‘gicler’, which literally translates as ‘to squirt’ or ‘spray’ (inspired by the way that the printer nozzle applies the ink pigments to the paper). The term ‘Giclée’ was coined to describe inkjet printing in the early nineties and has remained a description for inkjet printing ever since.
The term ‘Giclée Prints’ or ‘pigment prints’ (as they are also known) denote a print made from a digital file directly to paper using an inkjet printer as an output device. Whilst the term is broad, it has come to be associated with prints produced to fine art papers.
Our Giclée printing is archival grade, exceptional quality and offers an intense colour and vibrancy. We are able to offer Giclée Fine Art prints on archival papers in sizes up to 60 inches wide, and just about any length you desire.
Why Should I Choose Giclée Fine Art Prints?
Giclée Fine Art Printing offers vivid colours unparalleled by traditional photographic printing process, however, using the same Giclée printing process we are also able to produce exceptional true-tone black and white images.
The Epson Ultrachrome inks used for our our Giclée Fine Art prints are highly pigmented, light-fast to an exceptional standard and specially designed to be used with our high-grade archival papers.
We stock a wide selection of archival Hahnemühle and Somerset papers for Giclée Fine Art printing – each paper provides a different tactility, texture and effect to the final print. We can also print on a variety of other papers by request.
Exceptional quality materials twinned with our client-centric approach ensures that we give you the best results every step of the way.
What Our Clients Say About Our Giclée Fine Art Prints:
“I have worked with Creative Director Mark Foxwell at Genesis Imaging, making my large prints for nearly a decade. Genesis allows me to work directly with an expert printer, which means a great deal when only the best prints are acceptable for my exhibitions and the recent prints for my Tate St. Ives retrospective looked stunning.”
“As a mixed media artist I am never sure from one project to the next what my challenges will be. I am always trying to push boundaries and the Genesis team are always there to listen, understand and most importantly, deliver. My most recent work, one-off and limited edition Giclée prints, needed to be produced in line with the high expectations demanded by corporate and private clients along with my London gallery. Needless to say I can always rely on the support of Genesis to assist me in producing my artwork at a consistently high level.”
