FAQ - ABOUT OUR EQUIPMENT

What types of printers do you use to produce your giclees?

There are a lot of buzzwords that float around in the printing business that need to be understood in their proper context to understand their significance. There are 3 types of ink / colorants (waterbased dyes, waterbased pigments and solvent pigments) that  we use today and each has it's unique benefits and drawbacks.

 

Waterbased dye have the highest range of color saturation and vibrance and therefore need only the primary CMYK colors to achieve excellence however they are subject to pollutants in the air. They are outstanding for photographic prints that are laminated to acrylic or cotton paper under glass but a poor choice for an unprotected canvas. Our dye printer uses 6 colors.

 

Waterbased pigments last much longer but require many more colors to achieve the range of color that dyes are capable of. The added advantage of the extra colors is that tonal gradations in greyscale images are smoother making it ideal for black and white prints. Our unit has 12 colors.

 

Solvent pigments are much like the oil paints an artist uses. They have the highest longevity and can have exotic metals like chromium giving the very vibrant colors. Artists know the advantages of using Cobalt Blue, Chromium Yellow and Cadmium Red. Our solvent printer uses 8 colors. At Nevada Art Printers we use all 3 types of technologies as we know all too well that there is no single magic bullet and use each technology where they are best.

What other services do you offer to enhance my giclee?

Depending on what type of media and instalation you're planning, we have options to help protect and enhance your artwork. If you choose not to frame your canvas, a gallery wrap will help finish your artwork. An excellent way to protect your prints is to face-mount it to plexiglass.
