Giclée Printmaking

The quality of original fine art prints with the convenience of digital output.


Giclée printmaking is a process created specifically for artists who need to produce exceptional and consistent editions of their work, often in a numbered series.

The end result is a museum quality print at a much lower price than traditional printmaking. This allows artists to easily market their work, expand their portfolio and archive previously sold originals.


Our Giclée prints also use inks that are archival and rated lightfast for up to 200 years, insuring your prints will stand the test of time. And with the Giclée printmaking process, the last printed piece in an edition will be identical to the first.


  • The Giclée process starts with an extremely high resolution digital acquisition of the original piece.
  • The file is then calibrated by our expert technicians to match the original.
  • Next, we output the print to our digital printer on your choice of special paper. The output process involves spraying microscopic droplets of ink that produce no visible dot pattern.
  • The final output includes a gamut of millions of colors - enough to reproduce most of the subtle tones and hues of the original. This allows the Giclée process to produce prints at a much higher level of quality than traditional print methods.

About Matching Your Original

The range of colors that can be reproduced by a particular combination of paper and inks (or pigments/dyes) is known is the gamut


The pigments used in your original art have a unique gamut and the dyes used in the Giclée Printmaking process have their own gamut which may or may not be able to exactly match ALL of those colors. 


TAYLOR PHOTO uses materials that produce the largest gamut possible to ensure that the final print is as close as possible to the original.

Black and White Sundance Giclée´ Prints

Our black and white Giclée prints are made on the latest Epson printers using Sundance Septone Inks and proprietary R9 Pixel Picasso software. As with our color Giclée color prints, we offer a variety of archival Somerset papers, availing photographers and artists a wide range of choices. This system produces rich warm-toned black and white images that rival or surpass what is possible with printing on conventional fiber-based papers.


Giclée Papers




Artists and professional photographers require archival print media for their digital fine art and photography. Now, in conjunction with our new EPSON Archival Ink, we bring you acid free, 100% cotton rag, fine art paper.


Available in 225 g/m rolls for flexibility and 425 g/m sheets for a museum quality feel, this is a bright white “hot press” paper (produced by pressing a finished sheet through hot cylinders) has the look and feel of Old World handmade paper.

Capable of creating 1440 dpi, high-resolution prints, this paper yields brilliant colors and deep blacks. The paper is made exclusively for Epson by Crane & Co., makers of specialty papers since 1801.




Somerset® has always been the paper of choice among serious artists and printmakers. Ever since the 1700s and the days of handmade paper, Somerset has enjoyed a reputation for quality that has continued to grow through the years.

Now, Epson brings you this Old World paper with an ink jet coating, to meet the quality requirements of the most demanding printmaker.
