What is a giclée print?
Giclée printing, derived from the French words "to spray" or "to squirt", is a professional-grade printing process that is similar to the inkjet printing you may have done at home. However, there are a few key differences that set giclée printing apart. First and foremost, giclée printing utilizes high-quality paper that is thicker and of a better grade than the standard paper used for home printing. While some specialized giclée papers may be thinner, they are still of higher quality than what is typically used for home printing. Additionally, giclée prints can be produced at much larger sizes than home printers are capable of handling - for example, an A0 print, measuring 84.1 x 118.9 cm (33.1 x 46.8 inches). Finally, the ink used in giclée printing is of archival quality, meaning that it is designed to last for many years without fading.
How long do giclée prints last?
While it is true that giclée prints have the potential to last up to 150-200 years under ideal archival conditions - such as being stored in a dark, climate-controlled environment - real-world conditions are often less than optimal. As a result, the actual lifespan of a giclée print is likely to be shorter, with a more realistic expectation of 70-80 years. Ultimately, the longevity of a giclée print will depend on a variety of factors, including the quality of the materials used, the care taken in handling and displaying the print, and the environmental conditions it is exposed to.
Typically, prints are produced within 3-5 working days, although the exact time depends on the current workload of the printing company. Once the prints are completed, the shipping time from the UK to your location will also influence the overall delivery time.
