INKJET PRINTING

An inkjet print, sometimes referred to as ‘Giclée’, is a print made with pigment inks sprayed on to a coated paper. The coating enables the ink to be absorbed accurately and to prevent it from spreading. The coating is often nothing more than calcium carbonate (chalk) or gloss papers my have a traditional Baryta surface. The coating enables the full expressive power of the inks to shine out without being diminished by absorption.

A print's archival qualities are determined by the combination of the paper and ink. The inks must be pure pigment, that is to say, pure colour that its not ‘fugitive’ (fades over time). The paper must be acid free and can be made of pure cotton or cotton and wood pulp mix.

We are happy to advise you on the various properties of the many papers available.
