Digital Fine-Art Printing
Art has been used to visually communicate thoughts and emotions since the beginning of mankind. From cave paintings to frescoes to screen prints and, now, giclees, visual art has evolved with time and technology.
The term giclee translates from French as “spray,” referencing the fact that ink is sprayed onto the print media surface. This innovative printmaking process was pioneered in the 1980s and has seen significant refinement since. It uses inkjet printers pulling images from digitized files, with output quality (assuming use of high-quality equipment, color management software and materials) rivaling lithography.
Northwest Framing uses the latest technology in wide format inkjet printers, the best pigment-based UV-stable archival ink sets and offers giclee fine-art prints on a variety of substrates (ie, print media) including various grades of paper, canvas, aluminum, acrylic and wood.
