Lucas Imaging takes extreme care in making the finest Giclee Prints either from you files, transparencies or from capturing your art digitally (see Photography of Fine Art). The goal of a Giclee print is to closely match the original. For this reason it is best to have the digital photography done at the same location as the printing. Giclee prints can be made from Artist’s digital images and transparencies but color matching is very difficult especially without the original artwork.
We use a variety archival papers ranging from a smooth to textured surface. Some papers do not use whitening agents while others use minimal whitening agents that are archival. Our printers include both Epson and Canon and we can make prints up to 44” wide by any length.
In addition to papers we also print to canvas that is also archival. The canvas is mostly cotton but does contain some polyester for dimensional stability to keep the canvas from sagging.
The entire process is critically color managed for optimum quality and consistency. Prints made today will match prints made in the future, which is most important for limited editions.
