Giclée Printing

We use a process called Giclée Printing to produce all of our prints. ‘Giclée’, the French word for ‘spray’, refers to the ink jet printing process used to produce these beautiful archival standard fine art prints. We use professional, fade-resistant Epson inks and our high quality paper, resulting in beautiful, fully archival prints with incredibly fine detail.

Fine Art Giclée technical specifications:

  • Printers: Epson Stylus Pro 9900 and 11880
  • 12 colour Ultrachrome HDR inks
  • variable-sized droplet technology

All of MakeRoom’s prints are produced using premium-quality, heavyweight paper from Hahnemühle, the world’s most famous papermaker. Our papers provide exceptional tonality and render sharp details with a consistent flatness.

All papers are designed for archival storage and are acid-free, making them highly resistant to ageing. The papers are also lignin-free, ensuring they will not yellow with age.

Our papers are independently tested to be light resistant for at least 100 years.
