Giclée printing or digital pigment printing?

Giclée printing, a technique that originated in the 1990s, quickly gained popularity among artists and photographers due to its exceptional print quality and longevity. The term “giclée” was initially coined to differentiate these digital pigment prints from traditional inkjet prints. Over time, it has become synonymous with high-quality digital printing using archival inks and fine art papers. At PIGMENT PRINTED, we continue the legacy of giclée printing as digital pigment printing, by meticulously reproducing your digital photos or artwork on authentic Hahnemühle fine art papers. Our state-of-the-art printers and skilled technicians ensure that every print captures the intricate details, vibrant colors, and tonal range of your original piece. Whether you’re a professional artist or a photography enthusiast, our commitment to delivering gallery-worthy prints remains unwavering.
