Why to Choose Giclee Fine Art Papers to Print Your Photographs

Author: Libby - Printique by Adorama

We believe in print and we believe in quality. Our Giclee Fine Art Papers are made with high-quality archival inks on a high-resolution large format inkjet printer. These fine art papers were carefully chosen based on their look, feel and longevity.

About Giclee Fine Art Papers 

Giclee fine art paper is made from cotton rag and is often acid-free. The papers typically have more of a matte finish as well as some sort of texture giving them a three-dimensional look. They are also thicker and heavier than most photo papers and offer different degrees of color and contrast. Let’s take a look at the differences among the three new papers.

LOW TEXTURE – Bamboo 290
