Halkides produces all images using an archival Giclée process, with the print mounted on an acid-free substrate.
All Giclée prints are protected by applying up to five coats of Eco-Print Shield®, which is water-resistant and also a UV protectant. It will protect the image surface to a large degree, but care should be taken as it by no means protects as well as glass or plexiglass, but it is much lighter than glass.
The art of fine art printing has become even more precise with the advent of the revolutionary Giclée (zhee-clay) printing process. The photographic image is first preserved in digital format by either initially using a high resolution digital camera or by scanning the image on to a computer, in effect "digitizing" the image so that it may be reproduced on an archival reproduction paper made specifically for this purpose.
The Giclée process is simply a fine stream of ink (more than four million droplets per second) spraying onto archival art paper. The art of darkroom manipulation and creation has been replaced by the equally artistic creative skills of computer "post-processing" or manipulation and adjustment. This produces combinations capable of reproducing millions of colors using highly saturated, archival ink having a higher resolution than lithographs, and the dynamic color range is equal to or greater than the darkroom print.
Giclées are appearing in the finest galleries and museums. Understanding the process is fast becoming a necessity for everyone who wants to be up to date on the current state of the art world for limited editions. Among some of the museums exhibiting giclée are The Boston Museum of Fine Arts, The British Museum, The Getty Museum, The Guggenheim Museum, The Museum of Modern Art, The Smithsonian Institution Libraries, and many other prestigious organizations. There is no finer print available for collectors than the giclée process for fine art signed and numbered prints.
The Giclée has become Halkides' printing method of choice.
