All Dalkey Island prints are giclée printed on canvas (frame within a frame style) or fine art paper (glass framed). Giclée printing is a process for producing Fine Art prints from original artwork using highly specialised wide format inkjet printers. The use of ‘Epson Ultrachrome’ pigment inks on pure white, heavyweight ‘Hahnemuehle’ German Etching paper or canvas ensures the prints are of archival quality. They are more expensive than prints produced by more traditional methods but have many advantages. Not least the fact that in addition to being permanent and non-fade, when displayed they are virtually indistinguishable from original paintings.
