Giclée print media overview

Sources of our media


Giclée printing has become highly regarded by many of the world’s best traditional medium and photographic fine artists, collectors, galleries, and museums. It combines digital printers with traditional archival fine art print media and provides the artist with creative opportunities previously unavailable. Giclée prints are produced one at a time on an as-needed basis with each print being exactly like the first, even if different sizes. We have considerable experience with digitally processing images for color, brightness, contrast, and detail.

Our standards for giclée prints

  • We have the ability to exactly reproduce photographs and original artwork without evidence of the technology used
  • We have the capability to complete the entire printing process in-house, from scanning to coating to mounting, all with a color-managed workflow
  • Our prints and mountings use the highest quality products available and we fully disclose these products
  • We have a reputation for honesty and integrity among artists
  • We perform on-going research and development to improve the craft
  • We archive your digital image files for whenever you need additional prints

Our print media and coating choices

We print on a wide variety of media at Redipix.com. For lamps we print on Canvas and Photo Silk. Our protective coating can provide a surface reflectivity of matte or gloss, but this choice makes little difference for back-lit media. For when the light is off, we recommend our gloss coating that brings out colors and deep blacks with glare much less than that for glass.

Photo Silk

Photo Silk is a smooth synthetic cloth which works well when back-lit and with minor texture shows more detail than does Canvas...more

Canvas

Canvas is especially durable and so is a good choice if you display without protection of glass cover. The texture of the weave works beautifully with large prints. If you have not seen photos or art giclée printed on canvas, you certainly should give this a try...more

Free samples

We provide on request 3x3-inch free samples of a test image printed on the two cloth types we offer with coating and a sample of the wood we use for the frame. Just send us email with your postal address to request this free lamp sample pack.


Coatings and protection

The coatings on our prints protect them from color changes by UV light, from airborne contaminants, and from spills and fingerprints. They also allow you to adjust the reflectivity and "pop" (matte vs. gloss) characteristics of canvas and Photo Silk...more
