What is... ?
Offset Lithography: A color negative or transparency is made of the original painting or drawing. The transparency is then separated into the four primary colors that surround us, in varying shades. These separations are united with the printing press, inks are added, paper is stacked at one end of the printing press, a button is pushed and at the the other end of the press you have the finished print or lithograph.
Giclee : (pronounced gee-clay) Is a high resolution continuous-tone reproduction of fine artwork. A giclée is a museum quality, 6 color ink jet print, directly applied to canvas, of a digitally scanned original oil painting. Long-life, fade resistant archival pigments are used in the printing as well as smooth weave acid free artist canvas, or lithographic quality paper. Recently, Wilhelm Imaging Research, Inc. announced their findings that, using proper care and lighting, giclée prints can retain their image quality for well over 100 years and in some cases 200-300 years. This process is able to reproduce over 90% of the visible color spectrum. This means that giclée printing can achieve colors that most printmakers and commercial litho printers cannot with traditional four color (CMYK, cyan, magenta, yellow, black) inks. The resulting images are so intense and life-like that it’s often difficult to distinguish the copy from the original painting.
