|The term Giclée originated in 1991 to refer to fine art prints created with digital output. Gicler is the French verb "to spray" (as from a nozzle) and since most digital printers today use nozzles to direct ink onto a substrate, the word Giclée is used to distinguish "fine art prints" from those created for non-art or commercial purposes. Our Giclée process produces quality fine art reproductions, faithful color rendering and, since we print from rolls and not sheets, the possibility of mural-size output. The artist is in control at all times. Through a series of proofs, you can control color and you can choose to enlarge or miniaturize your work or keep it the same size. When you are satisfied, your work is then digitally printed on an archival quality medium. The advantages of Giclée prints over traditional lithography are color fidelity, longevity, and the option of printing any number you want instead of committing to hundreds at one time. With our on-demand technology, additional prints are always just a phone call or e-mail away! The biggest advantages Teshin Associates Digital Arts offer over other companies are superb color balancing, unrivalled personal service and vastly improved print longevity (100 to 150 years depending on media). Our newest printer uses eight pigmented ink cartridges to provide the highest color gamut at a true 1440 x 1440 dpi resolution.
Teshin Associates is dedicated to providing the highest quality limited edition prints on the market today. Constant research guarantees the best archival materials and techniques available.
