Giclée printing using pigment inks
When it comes to archival, museum grade artwork and photo prints, those created on modern pigment based inkjet printers are at the top of the list. We use Canon’s latest generation 12 colour pigment inks in our wide format printers.
Independent testing has shown that our prints will last 60 years framed under glass (to an archival standard), ~80 years when framed under UV Glass (to a museum standard) and > 200 years in archival album storage.
A digital C-print alternative for photographers
Many photographers that have a fondness to the silver halide based Type-C Print with many digital labs continuing to produce beautiful prints using the traditional RA4 process.
With modern pigment based printers, photographers now have access to a wider colour gamut, a larger range of print media and longer print permanence, all while reducing the the environmental impact of chemicals and heavy metals.
Innovations like Canon’s chroma-optimiser reduce the gloss differential previously seen between high-gloss Type-C and inkjet prints.
