Giclée Printing

giclée print  :  a print produced by the giclée process. The high end of inkjet printing is the giclée print … . The name is derived from the French verb “gicler” meaning to squirt, or more accurately in this case, an extremely fine spray of many different sized droplets. This application of overlapping dots of ink mixes, forming additional color combinations. The application of the inks in this printing process is so fine that there are no discernible dots or droplets on the final print. — Steven Bleicher, Contemporary Color: Theory and Use, 2012. Giclées are produced from digital scans of existing artwork. — Marjorie Wertz, The Tribune-Review (Greensburg, Pennsylvania), 2 Oct. 2005

Q&A

Will my prints cost more than the Big Box stores?

Yes, and for good reason. The Box stores are not allowed to check images for quality before printing, so the results are never what they could be. At Rimrock Art, each one of your images are examined individually for artifacts, resolution, proper cropping, color balance, levels etc. Our printers are true giclée printers and use the highest quality pigment inks available today. Further, our print media, whether it's canvas, watercolor or photographic paper, is the highest quality available in our industry. 

How large can I print my photos?

Great question. The answer is that we simply won't know until we are able to view the file on our screen. But generally speaking, we're finding that we can sometimes print a cell phone photo at around 16x20 if it's a great shot!

We have the ability to print up to 44" wide by almost any length.

Can you print my photos in one hour?

While we can do rush orders (depending on our current work load), we would not suggest rushing a quality print order. When you print at Rimrock Art, our job is to turn out the highest quality print possible. Quality is worth the wait!

Can you print my photos on metal?

Yes, we certainly can. There are different ways to get an image on "metal" but we suggest using Chromaluxe panels which were developed for the high-end photographic print market.
