Edition Print: (Signed and Numbered)
lithograph and Giclee can produce excellent results that meet the
exacting standards of the Fine Art Trade Guild in terms of colour
accuracy and permanence. However for the artist and publisher there
are some economic differences. The cost of Giclee paper and inks
is very much more than a lithograph and they take much longer to
produce (a single large image can take up to an hour to print).
The original set up costs though are much lower, the advantage of
this is that small edition sizes can be viable. This may prove to
be a bonus for both artists and collectors as it means prints of
very specialised subjects that would not normally be commercially
viable can now be reproduced.
advantage of the Giclee method is that it can be equally effective
when using canvas as the printing medium, a good Giclee canvas can
be difficult to distinguish from an original painting. A number
of publishers are now including a small Giclee canvas edition with
new print releases.
