Giclée Printing

Giclée printing is a term that describes a printing process which results in the very highest standard of archival print. The term was first used by printmaker Jack Duganne back in 1991 and has since become recognised as the go-to print medium for professional photographers and artists alike.

Giclée Prints are created using specialist inkjet printers and can be printed on a wide range of different paper types, with each paper type providing a unique finish which adds an extra dimension to the finished print.

At Blue Sky printing, our Giclée printing service ensures that all of your images will be printed and finished to the highest professional standards, making them commercially saleable. Our Giclée print service also guarantees that our printed imagery will not fade in direct sunlight, retaining colour & contrast for years to come.

Ordering Giclée prints online at Blue Sky Printing has never been easier, and as a recognised Hahnemühle Photo Lab Partner, we are proud to offer a comprehensive range of Hahnemühle papers.

We understand that colour accuracy is very important to our customers. We have made it very easy to soft proof your work on your own screens, using our own custom ICC profiles. 

The prerequisite for this to be effective is that you have a screen which has been professionally calibrated. We use i1Display Pro calibrator to regularly ensure our screens are correct as well as creating custom profiles for each paper we use when paired with our specific printers.

Customer Reviews

“I had already had one beautiful canvas made here for my mother in law so I returned on Saturday to see if they could accommodate my new request. I wanted to keep all my toddler’s art work but not the piles of paper so asked if they could make a canvas collage for me. Sure enough they sent me a proof to change/authorise within hours and it was ready for collection the next day. Fast, Friendly, Professional Service. Thank you once again, we love it!”

“Just want to say a big thanks to all for the work carried out to turn a good photo to a fantastic one! And then print it to 50″ x 40″ fantastic canvas print. Not only that, turned it around in record time to hit a birthday deadline.. If you want top notch service and quality look no further…”
