Giclee is the only mechanical printing method that offers a huge choice of fine art materials to print on; real canvas, real pure cotton watercolor paper. Real smooth cotton paper as well.
The tonal range is unparalleled by any standard. We are not comparing to hand made lithographs. We are talking about the finest European and American made papers and canvas. We are talking pigment inks. Every subtle gradation is captured and rendered. There is a reason why giclee has become so popular. We are told over and over by seasoned artists and photographers how incredible our giclee print looks compared to what they had done before.
There are no set up costs encountered for example when going to press. And the printing is on demand. Do you want one or one hundred prints? It doesn't matter; do you want odd, non standard sizes? No problem. Pretty much everything can be done with giclee prints, such as painting over them to create uniques pieces.
