Giclee prints are high-quality prints that tend to last really long. All due to this, it is essential to choose good quality papers for the same. While selecting paper for your Giclee print you must establish a balance between how the print appears with how it will hold up. Some of the major factors which you should pay attention to while selecting paper for your Giclee prints are as follows:

Slide3:

Choosing Between Matte, Glossy And Semi-Gloss Finish : Matte papers texture can range from uniquely textured to ultra-smooth. It does not show any reflection and work well in bright light . Glossy papers contain a reflective coating which gives prints a glossy appeal and acts as a protective layer between the actual ink and oils from direct touch with hands . The semi-gloss paper is the midpoint between matte and glossy. It produces less glare, displays rich colors, resists fingerprints, and is more durable than matte paper.

Slide4:

Paper Brightness : The brightness of paper is expressed in number between 1-100(least to very bright). Extreme bright and bold colors require a paper which is high on the brightness scale to appear more vibrant in final prints. Similarly, very light colors need paper low on the brightness scale to produce richer images. If your artwork has a blend of light and dark colors, use paper medium on the brightness scale.

Slide5:

Weight : When you want to create a portfolio of your artwork, use thinner paper for printing. It facilitates easy turning of pages, will take up less space, and thinner paper is less stiff. Giclee printing services or printing large-scale images requires thicker paper to avoid wear and tear with time and for better framing.

Slide6:

Different Types Of Inks : Artists and buyers both should understand various characteristics of the types of inks used in printing and how to take care of finished product to increase the life-span of the ink. For example, dye-based inks should stay away from direct sunlight to avoid getting faded away. Artists must try to use inks and papers which work best in his budget.

Slide7:

Correct Resolution : You must first analyze the size at which you would like the print to be. 300DPI is the safest resolution for any standard-size prints. For example, if you choose the longest side of your image is to be 12 inches, then your digital image has to be a minimum of 4,800 pixels in that dimension (4800pixels/300ppi=12 inches).
