Why Giclee Printing Is The Best Choice for Photo Prints - The Stackhouse Printery

Why Giclee Printing Is The Best Choice for Photo Prints

In recent years, technological advancements have revolutionized the way we capture and print photographs. Traditional manual processing methods in darkrooms are becoming obsolete as digital printing becomes ubiquitous.

Today, photographers use a wide range of digital printing technologies, and inkjet printing is the most popular. At The Stackhouse Printery, we use Giclee inkjet printing because it is the best option for high-quality photo prints.

With Giclee printing archival pigment inks create richer longer lasting prints.

Giclee is a French word meaning "to spray." Giclee inkjet printers use specialized fine mist spray nozzles that better capture photographic details, enabling print quality that rivals museum quality.

Giclee printers also use more ink colors and higher-quality archival pigment inks. Archival pigment ink is manufactured from solid, opaque pigments suspended in an ink solution. This structure makes archival inks more color-fast than standard ink options, such as dye-based inks. The pigments in archival inks also create deeper, richer, and more lustrous colors that last an exceptionally long time (centuries under the proper conditions) without degradation.

Giclee printing uses higher quality, longer lasting archival photo papers.

Giclee printing also uses top-tier archival photo papers that are acid-free, lignin-free, and pH-neutral, so they do not yellow or fade over time. Archival papers are also manufactured using pure cotton fibers (like cotton rags) or pure alpha cellulose fibers, which are naturally more durable than paper made from wood pulp.

Better quality and longer lasting prints have made Giclee printing the industry standard.

Quality, vibrancy, and durability have made Giclee printing the industry standard among professional photographers. It is the best option for photographers hoping to sell their work in the commercial market or hobbyists who want to put their best foot forward. Giclee prints also ensure your cherished family prints last for generations.
