Giclée printing easy, surely not – we explain why it is

Is giclée printing easy not difficult? Yes, giclée printing is simple. Don’t panic, there is a catch, preparing for giclée printing is the hard part.

Anyone can print a giclée print

Yes this is true but not everyone can print a good one. Getting the right quality of digital image to start with is the key to success here. It’s a bit like decorating a room, 90% of the work is the preparation.

Dumb giclée printing machine

The actual printing is done by a dumb machine which only does what it is told to do. Put a dot of this colour this big in this position on the paper. This is easy! Giving it the instruction to do that is where the skill is.
