Most photographers & artists find the Giclée or Digital C-type process most effective for highly detailed art reproduction, and it also has the side benefits of being fast, cost effective and with very consistent colour reproduction.
At theprintspace we offer 7 Giclée art papers and 4 Digital C-type papers.
C-type (Chromogenic) prints are used by professional photographers for the best detail, colour and impact. Take a look at the c-type print options here. If you are in a hurry C-type Fuji Matt is the most popular paper chosen by photographers.
Giclée art prints are used by photographers, illustrators, painters, designers, typographers…and visual artists of all kinds. The colours are punchy, the paper textures range from textured and fibrous, to smooth and matt, to glossy with a range of base colours from neutral bright white to warm-tone off white. If you are in a hurry Hahnemühle Photorag is the most popular paper chosen in the Giclée range.
