4 Things You Need To Know About Giclee Prints

Invented in the 1980s, Giclee prints are fast becoming something that existed in a bygone era - thanks to advancements in print technology.

The Giclee method of printing was largely employed by magazines and publishers to make disposable proofs of their manuscripts. While they were, essentially, low quality versions of the original prints, artists began to use this cheap method as a way to sell reproductions of their works.

Today, while prints made using this method are still available, they are - despite improvements in the print process - generally considered to be of a lower quality than other print options, particularly by art collectors. 

Giclee Prints - Iris Proofs

They were originally known as iris prints or iris proofs. They were so named because they were produced on IRIS printers, which are essentially the antecedent to contemporary inkjet printers.

For example, if you were to produce a photo of your favourite beach sunset, it could be printed on an industrial Iris printer or on your home ink jet printer.

Depending upon the company or printmaker producing the print, there can be a wide variation in the quality of the finished Giclee product due to the quality of the inks and printers that are employed.

While some giclee prints might last for a long time, you may find that the colors of others fade quickly like their Iris proof ancestors.

lf you unwittingly buy an inferior product, your once beautiful sunset photo is at risk of fading.

All of a sudden, we could snap a photo, print it out on paper and hang it on the wall. It was wonderful!

That said, the quality of the print was determined by the quality of the paper we used.

Even higher quality photo paper had its own shortcomings, susceptible to all kinds of damage, whether from moisture, dust or sunlight.

The cost of buying then constantly replacing print paper and ink cartridges became a massive chore. Like any fad, we soon got over it.

Advances in printing and online technology means we not only get to enjoy superior printing on stunning, gallery-quality stretched canvas, we can order it online.

Goodbye messy toner. Goodbye expensive paper. Hello 21st Century!

Giclee Prints - No framing

In the same way artists paint on canvas, today we - the everyday creative and non-creative - can enjoy the benefits of printing on stretched canvas.

While it sometimes makes sense to mount items like college degrees and original paintings in a traditional frame, it makes little sense to laboriously print then painfully frame photos and art prints.

Today, we get to enjoy the beauty of printing directly onto a range of materials: canvas, acrylic glass and brushed aluminum.

To achieve an upmarket, frameless look in your own home, you can now print to canvas, glass or metal. 

Using stretched canvas you can extend your image around the frame or mirror it. Using acrylic glass, you can create a classy 'high art' effect. With resilient, brushed aluminum, you can take your photo art outdoors without risk of damage. 

Once you've discovered all that frameless printing offers, you will never have to buy a photo frame again.

Giclee prints, because they're made of paper, have shortcomings when used for printmaking. We'd hate to see our customers' prized photos get damaged through creasing, humidity, dust or sun.

Because of this, you’ll most certainly need to purchase a frame in order to protect the fragile paper.

That frame, however, could ultimately end up costing you more than the print itself. When you multiply that by six for a wall display, you're in for a hefty outlay.

Our stretched canvas, glass and metal prints are far more durable and have a look and quality that honors the significance of the images they display.

Love them.
I have a slim build so I really liked the fit of this shirt. The material is soft and moisture wicking. I liked my first one so I bought two more and one for a friend.
For some reason the toes of the socks are much thinner then the rest of the sock. Rotating the socks daily, my prediction is I'll see the first hole within 4 months. I've been buying socks for over 45 years, and these are by far the shortest socks I've ever owned. Barely some up 1/4 of my calve. I don't think I'll repeat the purchase.
Comfortable, but too long.
This bag is everything I wanted and more. It's literally the perfect size. I love a large bag that is sturdy enough to hold all my belongings. I can actually fit a small laptop inside this bag if I wanted to. I love that it is divided into 3 big sections. The middle compartment zips up. Also the top of the bag has a zipper so everything inside the bag is securely stowed away. Overall I LOVE this bag so much! It was my birthday gift and I'm so happy with my purchase.
Cute, but if you put anything in it prepare yourself to fight the popped zipper!
I have a denim pair from Walmart of the same pant.
Yours fit tighter....a bit uncomfortable.
These fit well over my glasses and are comfortable. Good choice for the price.
I bought one for me and used it on a short trip I was taking. It worked out great.
So great in fact, I bought one for my sister who is going on a cruise. Carrying a purse while site seeing is inconvenient, so this backpack will be the perfect alternative.
Belt was small and narrow and smelled like mold and mildew.
Under pant because I going to travel north
I have no problem with Amazon or the seller. Just want to bring to your attention that the photo's for the 4 packs actually show 5 pair. I thought I was purchasing a 5 pack, but it's my fault for not reading the description more carefully. Love the product!
Great shorts. Inseam is just right for a 5'-10" feller. Knees exposed. If ya got 'em fount 'em.
Even though I only wear 2 of the sizes it's a good deal. I LOVE the screw on backs. Actually stays tight....
My husband wears 13 size shoes, odd and big. Always have had issues with regular mens socks wearing out fast because theyre up to size 12! These are really well made, he says he could wear them all the time they feel so good on his feet!
Excellent
My wife loves them, she swears they work and shes always on her feet
Fits great. Warm and comfy
Beautiful
Ive never written a review because nothing has stood out to me that much but this backpack deserves an EXCELLENT review. Let me say Ive order a handful of different backpacks from Amazon and this is even better than the one I got from Nordstrom that was twice the money. This is super functional, its comfortable and has plenty of room. I wouldnt suggest it for carrying around items needed for a new baby but I use this everyday and I also have 3 1/2 year old twins so I do have quite a few things I need to tote around on the daily. This is hands down an excellent buy. Even if you dont use it cause you dont have kids then I still would recommend this. Its stylish and the leather is so soft but durable. The zippers are placed exactly where you would need them and I love the idea of getting into the backpack from the back zipper. Didnt really know how I would like it but now that Ive gotten used to it, its a great concept. The straps are easy to adjust which is so important. It has side pockets so you could put a bottle water or juice cup. It has two inside compartments that are a functional size to fit a pair of sunglasses. I could go on and on but if youre in the market for a backpack thats functional and stylish then I would highly suggest you pick this!
Wife loves them!
Perfect size bag for when I walk my dogs or go to the park. I needed a bag that was large enough to fit a frisbee! Before I was using a drawstring gym type bag that would dig into my shoulders. This back pack has many compartments for my keys, phone, leashes, and toys. The only con is that the side water bottle compartment is very small and doesnt stretch to allow for most regular size water bottles. I reused an old glass bottle that was for juice and it fits ok with a little finessing. Thats my only complaint! Other wise love the bag, so cute!
These earrings are so awesome. I just can't believe the quality!!!
Well made quality hat!!!
I needed an affordable college graduation cap and this item was exactly what I needed!
Perfect size and weight, these are lovely earrings, just what I wanted.
I bought three different brands/types of undershirts and this is my comparison of them. I am a female 38B for comparison for others. I bought Gildan Men's A-Shirts 5 Pack, Grey/Black, Medium; Amazon Essentials Men's 6-Pack Tank Undershirts, White, Small; and Felina | Cotton Stretch Layering Tank Top | Loungewear | 3 Pack | Multiple Colors Black. The sizes I purchased was based on reviewer comments and what the size chart stated. I found each of these did what they said they would. The men's shirts do stretch out a little during the day; the Felina does not. It stays nice and snug. The Amazon Essential's were 2.33 apiece and were all white. The Gildan's were 2.39 apiece and were black and gray. The Felina's were white and black and were 3.37 apiece. So do I think the Felina's were worth the extra dollar a piece? - Probably. I like that they stay snugger all day; however, the men's shirts were nice as they are basically all cotton. I am also glad I have more than just white, which is what I replaced these with. Your choice!
Excellent. I'll buy again as these wear out.
