Hello! I'm Lisa Ketty, and I am the proud owner of HiPosterShop, where I've combined my love for fine art and graphic design to bring you stunning, museum-quality posters. Today, I want to share a little about the magic of fine art giclée, a process I've fallen head over heels for in the pursuit of creating top-quality prints.
The Magic of Giclée Paper
"Art is not what you see, but what you make others see." - Edgar Degas
Giclée (pronounced 'zhee-clay') is a high-quality printing process. With its precise printing techniques and rich, accurate colors, giclée elevates digital prints to an art form. It truly allows the beauty of the original artwork to shine through. If you'd like to learn more about the details of this fascinating process, check out this article in my blog series.
My Giclée Posters
At HiPosterShop, I use the giclée technique to create breathtaking posters that do more than fill a space on your wall. They bring joy, inspire creativity, and add a sophisticated touch to any room. These museum-quality posters are made on thick, matte paper sourced from Japan. The quality is evident in the paper thickness (0.26 mm, or 10.3 mil), paper weight (189 g/m²), opacity (94%), and ISO brightness (104%).
As an independent poster shop, I believe in minimizing waste. That's why I print on-demand, making each poster, especially for you as soon as you place an order. This process might take a little longer, but it significantly reduces overproduction.
Browsing through the collections on HiPosterShop, you'll find a world of creativity waiting for you. From the minimalistic art pieces in the Minimalistic Art collection to the soothing natural elements in the Art of Flowers collection, I believe there is a print for everyone.
What is a giclée print?
A giclée print is a high-quality digital print made with pigment-based inks on a professional, high-quality printer. The giclée printing process provides incredibly detailed prints that last longer and have a brighter, more extensive color range than other print methods.
Why should I choose a giclée print?
Giclée prints offer superior quality in terms of resolution and color depth. They are also more durable, resisting fade much better than other types of prints. At HiPosterShop, every giclée print is a beautiful representation of the original artwork.
How are the prints at HiPosterShop made? The creation of each print at HiPosterShop is a tailored experience, meticulously carried out upon request. The production involves employing the giclée printing technique on a robust, matte Japanese paper, guaranteeing superior quality and minimal waste.
How do I care for my giclée print?
Caring for your giclée print from HiPosterShop is quite straightforward. Avoid exposing the print to direct sunlight for extended periods, as it may cause fading over time (although giclée prints are more fade-resistant than other prints). Additionally, handle your print carefully to prevent damage to the paper and ink. When framing, use UV-protective glass to protect the print further.
What is the shipping process like?
As soon as you place your order, I start the printing process. Usually, it takes about 2-5 business days to create a poster. After that, you should add shipping times on top of that. I provide worldwide shipping, and the estimated shipping times vary depending on the location. All posters are shipped in sturdy, protective packaging to ensure they reach you in perfect condition.
I created HiPosterShop to bring beautiful art into everyday life. Through giclée printing, I can ensure that every piece retains the original artwork's beauty, color, and detail. I believe that art should be accessible to everyone, and I've priced my posters to reflect that.
Art has the power to transform spaces, inspire us, and make us see the world in a new light. You're inviting that transformation into your life by hanging a piece from HiPosterShop in your home or office. I can't wait to help you discover the perfect piece for your space.
