Large format digital images are printed on premium 10 mil (0.25mm) glossy photo paper, the result is a brilliant colorful image with a vivid life-like quality. Pigment based Epson UltraChrome K3 ink is used providing a lightfastness rating of up to 108 years, guaranteeing minimal noticeable fading over a very long period of time. Giclee printing is superior to traditional lithography in a number of ways: colors are brighter, lasts longer, and is a higher resolution.
