GICLÉE ART, EDITIONS
Etching, serigraphy and stone lithography are well known traditional graphic techniques. Photography used silver halide processes to make printed copies of the picture captured to original film. The digital age introduced revolutionary new printing devices and a completely new and contemporary printing technique. Printed Art is unique, authentic and original no matter how the digital image was created.

Ever since the invention of printing, artists have used the opportunity to make multiple copies of their works. No wonder that Rembrandt used the technique of etching for printing his drawings as editions.
Several museums and galleries around the world exhibit Giclée reproductions instead of the original artwork. This demonstrates that the Giclée is accepted by the Art market.

There are fundamental differences in the sense that which territory of arts works originated from.

Making prints is an essential tool for the creation of tangible objects of art for photographers and computer artists.
Printing reproduction editions from originals is a new opportunity for manual artists like painters and graphic artists.
In the first case digital files are made by the artists, for the latter the original art has to be digitized.

Many self publishing artists, photographers, collectors and galleries use our giclee printing service to create fine art, canvas or photographic prints from their original digital files or artwork.

Why Make Giclee Fine Art Prints?

The dream of reproducing your work in limited numbers and at a level of quality that makes it difficult to distinguish the print from the original is now a reality. This reality allows the artist to publish limited edition prints on canvas or paper and in so doing create a scalable income from a single painting.

Limited and open editions

Limited edition prints are an option open to all artists but it can depend on where you are in your career. Printing greeting cards or post cards may be the place to start, as a marketing step in order to generate more awareness and demand.

It may however work for the artist to publish a selection of their works as limited editions from an early stage. Buyers like the exclusivity of limited prints especially if they are signed and numbered. In addition, they will often pay more and take a risk in an unknown artist if the works will one day no longer be available. To explore the benefits and restrictions of Limited Editions find out more at next chapter: Authentication, Certification.

Print on Demand

The meaning is in the title. Unlike screen printing where a lot of colour matching must take place before each print run, which are then set to produce hundreds or thousands of prints,  once the colour match is decided by the artist in the giclee process, the digital file is stored until needed. Later, giclee images can be produced as required or on demand after a sale is made, hence eliminating the high cost (and storage issues) of producing a complete edition at one time.

Price and value

Giclee printing allows the self publishing artist the opportunity to sell their work to a larger group of the population without devaluing their work or lowering the cost of their original pieces. By varying the size, substrate and if limited, the number of their prints, they can set prices to match the wallets of a range of potential customers.

With the potential range of products now available to the artist from greeting cards to prints on stretched canvas to the original, it is possible to make sales at all types of outlets. Many artists sell their giclee prints alongside their originals at exhibitions, local galleries, art fairs and markets. Some chose to sell through shared online galleries and some via theirown websites. A mixture is probably the right way to go but the beauty of giclee printing is that it gives the artist the chance to find out for themselves with affordable prices, prints on demand and quality they can be proud of.

Remember that a limited edition giclee print run does not have to be printed all in one go. You can cut down your costs by only printing what you sell and you benefit from not having unsold prints that have cost you money to produce and may never sell at all.
