Photos on Canvas: Giclée Printing Process
The Look Of An Original Painting
At first glance, the Old World Charm of Dry Heat Studio is
often mistaken as oil painting originals. The natural rich texture of giclée
printing on canvas, the vivid colors and sharp details of his captivating photographs, beckon
feelings reminiscent with past places we've traveled.
What Are Giclée Prints?
A Giclée Print is an individually produced, high-resolution
print made using a new sophisticated wide format inkjet printer technology. A state-of-the art
digital printer sprays millions of drops of ink per square inch onto specially treated canvas
or paper, producing a large archival quality image with brilliant velvety colors, crisp
contrast and razor-sharp details.
Giclée, pronounced "Zhee-Clay" or "Gee-Clay" derived from the French for
'Squirt" ink, was originally developed in 1989 as a digital alternative to lithographic
reproduction. The Giclée Print Process today, has far surpassed the dpi
(dots per inch) resolution of traditional lithographs and is now the world's preferred
standard for fine art print reproductions.
Photos On Canvas - No Need For Frames
Dry Heat Studios' photographic images are printed on large canvas, then cut
to size and stretched over 1-1/4" stretcher bars. The 1 1/4 inch edge of the photographic
canvases have a unique artistic appearance as the image continues to fold around the sides to
the back. There is no need for frames or glass. They are beautiful plain and ready to hang up
on a wall just as they are.
Giclée Prints - Photos On Canvas Are Washable
Giclées printed on canvas are treated with a UV light
protecting layer. They can be easily cleaned with a damp cloth or sponge and they'll keep
their brilliant color for decades.
