TR Trades Fine Art Printing Service

We’re dedicated to the perfection of reproducing your originals—using the latest photographic inkjet technology to bring true colour and accuracy to your fine art.

What is Giclee?

Giclee (pronounced “zhee-KLAY”) printing is a type of inkjet printing  synonymous with greater quality and a longer lifespan. Giclee is advantageous for reproducing work as it offers the benefits of digital printing, such as; fast turnaround, smaller runs and less labour, while maintaining supreme quality.

There are three key factors that differentiate giclee printing from traditional inkjet prints:

  1. Resolution: Documents that are to be printed as a giclee require a minimum DPI of 300. This guarantees that the document possesses adequate resolution to print the finest details. To reproduce your existing photography or artwork, we use our high quality scanners to ensure this resolution is achieved when items are scanned for print.
  2. Archival Quality Paper: With giclee, your artwork or photography is printed on archival quality paper or alternative archival substrates. The quality of this grade of paper allows you to achieve giclee’s longevity, adhesion and colour quality.
  3. Giclee Quality Inks: Giclee prints are created using specialty high-quality inks, typically on large format printers. High Dynamic Range inks offer a vastly increased life span with better color quality upon final output. Our giclee printer meets the highest standards by offering the widest color gamut in the industry.
