A "fine art" print, also known as a Giclée print, is a high-quality reproduction of an original artwork that adheres to specific standards to ensure exceptional quality and longevity. To be considered a true fine art print, it must meet the following requirements:

 

 

Printer Type
While conventional printers typically use four colors (cyan, magenta, yellow, and black), giclée/fine art printers employ a wider range of inks, often up to 12 different types. This includes multiple shades of black and a varnish to enhance the depth and vibrancy of colors. The result is prints with exceptional color accuracy and richness, surpassing the capabilities of standard digital printing. Additionally, the file preparation and printing process is carried out by skilled professionals who specialize in calibration and color correction to ensure optimal results.

 

 

Paints
Fine art prints utilize mineral pigments, which are colorants that offer superior chemical stability and resistance to fading caused by time and UV exposure. These pigments undergo stringent quality control to ensure consistent tone, durability, and colorfastness.

 

Special paper
Fine art prints are produced on specialized papers that meet specific requirements. These papers must have a neutral pH to prevent acidity-related deterioration. They should also be composed of natural fibers, such as cotton or alpha cellulose, and should not contain any artificial bleaching agents. The paper thickness and weight typically exceed those of conventional papers. These characteristics ensure proper pigment distribution on the paper surface and contribute to the overall quality of the print.

 

Longevity
When properly framed and handled, a fine art print can achieve exceptional longevity, lasting over 250 years. The amount of light exposure, measured in megalight-hours, significantly impacts the longevity of a printed artwork. Minimizing direct sunlight exposure and framing with UV-protective glass further prolongs the life of the print.

Certification
Both the paper (whether made from cotton, koso or similar fibers) and the mineral pigment inks used in fine art printing must meet established industry standards and certifications. This ensures that the materials meet the requisite quality and durability expectations for fine art prints.

 

 

Value
Copyright images printed using fine art techniques with the intention of being collectible and displayed as art, typically in limited editions, and hand-signed by the artist, hold artistic value. These prints are considered fine art and command a premium due to their exceptional quality, longevity, and artistic significance.
