When most people use the term giclée they are referring not just to the device and technology used to make a print, but also to the materials used, their permanence, and the skill of the craftsperson making the print. Giclées are usually limited edition prints of artwork or photographs created collaboratively between artist and printer.
As Reno Type has been the area’s premier color separator, using drum scanners to scan and reproduce images for the advertising and printing industries, and as we still employe those craftspeople and maintain the older high-end equipment, Reno Type is uniquely qualified to be a partner in reproducing your art or photography. If your original is too large to scan directly, we will work with a skilled commercial photographer to ensure the best possible starting place for your reproduction.
If you wish to provide a digital file, we are happy to print proofs or reproductions on a time and materials basis. In this case, we cannot guarantee the quality of the reproduction.
The equipment we use for giclées uses eight colors and therefore can reproduce an amazing gamut of colors. Nevertheless, there are shades of some colors that simply cannot be matched on a print. The most difficult colors to reproduce are extremely vibrant blues and greens. If we believe we cannot match the colors in your original, we’ll let you know of these concerns up front.
