What Is Fine Art Giclee Printing?

Fine art printing is the practice of printing on museum-quality, archival mediums with archival pigment inks on high-resolution digital inkjet printers. This combination of high-quality materials, inks, and printers provides an unmatched range of color, depth, and detail. Fine art prints or fine art giclee (pronounced “jee-clay”) are industry-standard in the art world for art reproduction and photography due to their superior quality. Fine art printing, however, is not just reserved for artists and photographers. Fine art printing has become increasingly available to the everyday consumer to commemorate personal work, photos, and more. Highly-curated personal spaces are on the rise and they demand the quality and longevity that fine art prints have to offer.

Tribeca Printworks has expertly curated a selection of fine art and photographic papers to bring your images to life and make them last. We offer a range of Hahnemuhle and Epson papers from smooth to subtly textured and matte-finish to high-gloss. Our fine art prints can be produced in any custom size ranging from 4×6″ to 64×120″. You may be wondering what the difference is between fine art paper and regular photo papers and the answer lies in the composition of the papers as well as the final product. These papers are made to endure with either a cotton or cellulose base and a neutral pH. This composition allows fine art papers to lock in inks and exhibit unsurpassed pigmentation and clarity. 

Choosing the right fine art paper for your work is an art in and of itself and is very personal. The factors to consider when choosing a paper are equal parts creative and technical. As with many artistic decisions, paper choice can be completely subjective based on preference, but we are always happy to steer you in the right direction. The Tribeca Printworks’s team is here to provide recommendations and determine the right choice based on your vision. You can view our paper selections and read about each particular paper below.

What Makes Fine Art Giclee Printing the Best?

Fine art giclee printing is an extremely versatile printing method used by photographers, painters and illustrators. Papers must meet certain criteria to be considered giclee fine art paper. Plus, fine art giclee prints will prevent your images from turning yellow or cracking and fading — even after a hundred years.

Different Paper Options for Fine Art Printing

There are various paper options for fine art giclee artwork and photography printing, including a fine art glossy or matte printed finish. A matte finish will deliver a shine-free look with distinctive textures to help bring out rich colors and black hues, while a glossy finish will make your images shine.

At Tribeca Printworks, our matte and glossy finishes include

Hahnemühle German Etching

Hahnemühle German Etching is a fiber-based matte paper that features a mottled, organic texture and delivers a strong tone, high contrast and intense color. Its natural white point and texture make it ideal for various fine art reproductions ranging from illustrations to oil paintings. It can also be used for photography.

Hahnemühle Photo Rag Bright

Hahnemühle Photo Rag Bright is a 100% cotton paper with a fairly smooth texture and almost cotton-like feel. It delivers even color gradients and reproduction, helping details pop in everything from wedding photography to fine art portraits.

Hahnemühle Fine Art Pearl

Hahnemühle Fine Art Pearl has a smooth, slight relief texture with a soft gloss finish. It can help give depth and dimension to your image while providing a neutral white base. This makes it ideal for creating an oil painting effect or a realistic feel to documentary or fashion photography.

Hahnemühle Photo Rag Baryta

Hahnemühle Photo Rag Baryta, is a 100% cotton baryta-style paper, with a soft gloss surface that helps show detail, black density, and contrast. This helps bring out the definition in everything from vintage photography to landscape images.

Epson Hot Press Bright

Epson Hot Press Bright paper is also made out of 100% cotton. It is one of the smoothest matte papers, making it great for crisp digital illustrations, art reproductions, and color photography.

Epson Cold Press Bright

While Epson Cold Press Bright paper has some texture, it makes vibrant colors really pop. This paper creates dimensional works of art, with all the colors filling in the paper’s grooves. It’s also ideal for digital illustrations.

Epson Luster Photo

Add a bit of shine and gloss to your everyday images with Epson Luster paper. When finished, your fine art photography prints will have a “snapshot” photograph look and fee.

Epson Enhanced Matte

Epson Enhanced Matte paper will let you stay within budget while enjoying vibrant colors and smooth contrast. Because of how thin it is, the paper also allows you to create lightweight portfolio prints.
