We offer 2 types of archival printing processes, archival acid free double mats and a high quality selection of wood frames.
A high resolution digital scan is made of the original transparency 4x5 slide film. Zita oversees the entire digitalizing process insuring consistency and high quality results throughout. The final high quality digitalized image is sent, ready for printing, to a leading Digital Photographic printer to be printed, operating at its highest resolution on highly fade resistant, glossy Fuji Crystal Archive Professional Paper. The final archival print is then mounted and double mated using acid free materials. The outer mat is signed and numbered.
Pronounced "Zheeclay", comes from the French noun that means a fine spray or a spurt of liquid. The term "Giclee print" connotes an elevation in printmaking technology. The quality of the Giclee print rivals traditional printmaking including silver-hallide and gelatin printing processes. Zita prints each print individually herself, using the same high resolution digital scan that was used with the Crystal Archive processed print, with Ultrachrome K3 pigment, which offers an extremely wide color gamut allowing the reproduction of colors that were originally envisioned at the point of capture. The result is a print with an archival life of 100 year + before noticeable fading, also water resistant. An archival premium high gloss photo-based paper is used.
In Zita's own words,
"After viewing my prints from many competitions, mostly printed using the Ciba Chrome and Ilfa Chrome processing, I totally changed my thinking, preferring the Giclee. I find there is almost a three dimensional quality to the image along with more vivid colors and better clarity along with improved shadow detail." "I am truly impressed".
*As seen in GicleePrint.net:
"Numerous examples of Giclee prints can be found in the New York City Metropolitan Museum, The museum of Modern Art, and the Chelsea Galleries. Recent auctioned Giclee prints have fetched $10,800 for Annie Lebovits, $9,600 for Chuck Close, and $22,800 for Wofgang Tillmans (april 23/24 2004, photographs, New York, Phillips de Pury & Company)."

The images shown are about a quarter of their actual resolution, to be internet friendly. Even at that, they look pretty good. You will be amazed when you see the actual print. The colors on your computer may not show the true vibrancy of the colors of the images. The sizes are approximate, varying slightly.
Look for the new images that will be introduced regularly. New products will also be included.
