About Susan's Giclee Fine Art Prints
Giclee is a French term meaning “to spray," referring to how an inkjet printer works and how giclee prints are usually produced. These large format inkjet printers use small spraying devices that can both match color and apply ink precisely, giving artists a high-quality print of their original art (artworkarchive.com).
To be able to make such a high-quality print, the scanner used to capture or scan Susan's original uses a very high level of resolution. Most printers and scanners have a resolution of 72 pixels per inch, more commonly known as 72 dots per inch, but here at Susan's Gallery, giclee fine art prints are reproduced at a minimum of 300 pixels per inch, giving them the best quality possible.
The ink and paper used for giclee printing is very high quality and considered “archival.” This we achieve by using inks that are non-fading pigment-based instead of dye-based and the only paper we use is a special fine art printing paper designated as archival, therefore giving us the best Giclee Fine Art Print possible that will last a lifetime.
Lithographs are on archival papers and signed and numbered limited editions.
Giclee Fine Art Prints are hand enhanced by Susan and each piece she enhances will have three signatures. Some pen and Ink Giclees are remarked by Susan and if they are it will be stated in their discriptions.
