Like offset lithographs, Giclée prints start with an original painting. A transparency of the original is scanned into a computer, where it can be color corrected, stored digitally and printed out as needed on a Epson R1900 printer, using pigment based inks. A series of tiny nozzles spray the paper or canvas, with a fine stream of pigmented ink. Because there are no line screens involved, Giclée prints have a higher resolution than offset lithographs, (about 1800 dots per inch) In offset lithographs each dot of color is encircled by white space, like in newspaper printing. In the Giclée process, however, inks are sprayed as droplets rather than dots; each droplet bleeds into the paper creating more of continuous tone than dot pattern. The Giclée prints' inks are a pigment based ink, verses an ink which uses dyes, and have been tested for longevity and outlast most lithograph inks being used. The Pigment particles are larger then that of dye particles, and so are known to hold color longer. The prints have shown to last 85-100 years without noticeable fading, assuming certain care factors are followed, allowing archival museum-quality prints.
