  Museum Quality Printing  

All of our portraits are printed using Giclee printing, which is the highest resolution printing on earth. All museums now do reproductions using Giclee printing, which has fully replaced lithographs for high-end reproductions.

Our portraits are printed at 600 DPI (dots per inch). In simple terms, that means that every square inch of print contains 36,000 dots of sprayed ink (600 across by 600 down). 600 DPI is actually a much finer resolution than the human eye can detect, which is why most fine resolution printing is done at 300 DPI. Even with a magnifying glass, very few people can see a difference between 300 DPI and 600 DPI prints. What's amazing about Giclee printing is that the printers are so refined, they support resolutions as high 2880 DPI horizontally and 1440 DPI vertically.

The portraits are printed on Moab Entrada Rag Natural 290, which is a thick, durable, 100% cotton paper. This paper has a warm, soft feel to it, and yet is many times thicker than standard paper.

Giclee prints are archivable for 120 years. That means that from the time of printing, the paper and ink will maintain 100% quality, with no deterioration in vibrancy or color, for 120 years. (However, the only caveat to this is that the prints must not be kept in direct sunlight.)

If you have any questions about Giclee printing, or the quality and durability of these portraits, please feel free to contact us any time!
