Tutorial - Making giclee prints for illustrators
Hello everyone!
So I spent quite a few hours some weeks ago entirely resetting my printing workflow... and suddenly I remembered how painful it had been in the first place, when I decided to take the leap and print my own giclees. Once you have all the information, it's actually quite easy, but I couldn't find a single tutorial gathering all the info in one place. So yeah, here you go! :)
Some of these steps I was lucky enough to learn from a professional art printer. Some I learnt through trial and error. Hopefully this tutorial will be useful to you!
What are giclee prints, and why would you want to make them?
 Giclee prints are high-quality fine-art reproductions printed with pigment inks on archival paper. They differ from regular fine-art prints, which are made with dye-based inks, which sink deeper into the paper (making images slightly more fuzzy, and details less crisp) and are not as lightfast as pigment inks.
Giclees are pretty much the best quality prints
