Fine art prints are reproductions that are made with high-quality equipment.

What is a Fine Art Print

A fine art print. The idea is that it’s the highest quality reproduction of a picture. My favorite example is a Giclée, which uses much more expensive equipment to make an image that has far higher resolution than a digital print. It’s not technically considered an original work of art (as you can’t see the original) but it is much more expensive and rare than traditional prints.

The most common way to print fine art prints is with the Giclee and lithograph methods.

Because the printing process involves a large number of steps, the overall time needed for the Giclee and lithograph methods is much longer than that of your typical canvas painting.

For those who insist on fabricating their own fine art prints, there are many ways to reduce this time and make the final product even more eye-catching. Different papers have varying surface textures, so test each one with your piece—if it feels impressive, you’re on your way to making yourself a fine art print.

Giclée is a printing method.

Giclée prints are a great option to replicate works on paper. Giclée is French for “spray of ink” and it refers to the process in which the images get created. They are made by spraying tiny drops of archival inks onto archival quality paper or canvas. The result is an incredibly high resolution print with a wide colour gamut that makes it easy to reproduce colours accurately, with fine detail and crispness, without compromising on quality.

A Fine Art print can be printed onto a range of materials including Fine Art paper, rolled canvas or stretched canvas, aluminium, acrylic and board.

A Fine Art print can be printed onto a range of materials including Fine Art paper, rolled canvas or stretched canvas, aluminium, acrylic and board. Each material offers artistic freedom and also has its own unique look and feel.

The most popular material for reproductions is canvas as it has a beautiful texture that makes the image appear like an original artwork. Canvas prints can be supplied either as loose rolls or gallery-wrapped canvases (stretching the canvas around a frame) with the edges painted.

Fine art paper is another common option, offering unparalleled colour reproduction and detail fidelity to the original artwork. It also comes in a huge range of sizes to suit any wall space.

If you’re looking for an alternative to standard art prints, aluminium mounted prints offer an ultra modern look that’s both light weight and non-reflective making it perfect for areas with lots of natural light such as over fireplaces and windows. If you want something even more unique then why not consider acrylic face mounting? The artwork is mounted on optically clear acrylic to create a deep glossy surface that brings out even the finest of details in your image with amazing clarity.

For archival quality, printing onto Fine Art paper and canvas is best for reproducing paintings.

For those who desire high-quality, archival reproductions of paintings, Fine Art paper and canvas are best. This paper is thicker than photo paper and the image is printed on it using a digital printer like an Epson large format printer.

For an even more durable reproduction that can hang in galleries or living rooms, the print can be stretched over a wooden frame as if it were a painting. The frame can be placed directly onto the wall with no need for a frame that encloses glass around the piece (although this option is available).

The reproduction will look identical to the original painting and will last for generations without any fading or damage.

Fine art printing is a great way to take an original piece of artwork and reproduce it in a high-quality fashion.
