John D. Chaney Photography | Image Process

 

 

I offer three types of images 1) Laminate 2) Museum Mount and 3) Canvas.

 

Giclee Photographic Images:

A Giclee fine art print refers to the most sophisticated process by which to reproduce the photographic image. The name comes from the French word “giclée” (pronounced Zhee-Clay) that means” to spray."  In this printing method, the photographic paper or canvas is carried by a roller while infinitely small pixels of rich, vibrant inks are sprayed on at a very high speed, rendering an amazingly smooth and consistent image true to the original. The Giclee is quickly becoming the new standard in the art industry, and is widely embraced for its astonishing quality by major museums, galleries, publishers and artists alike.

We reproduce the photographic image on the finest quality photographic paper or canvas that is selected to match the image. Each image has the most vivid color reproduction, brilliant whites and distinct highlight details. These papers or canvas deliver beautiful prints, with excellent image stability, consistency and performance. The images capture the vibrant colors and subtle hues found in our natural world. We strive to present your image as clearly as possible; therefore, we do not use glass so the true colors can be as vibrant as possible.

The Giclee process uses ten high dynamic range ultrachrome color channels producing 2880 dpi quality.

As with all fine art, images should not be displayed in direct sun light.  With proper lighting and our special photographic papers and UV process, your image should maintain color permanence for more than 100 years.

 

Laminate:

The photographic image is placed under a special UV laminate.  This provides extra protection of your investment and provides several generations of color permanence.

 

Museum Mounting:

This is the best process and only slightly more of an investment.  The photographic image is face mounted to Plexiglas with UV protective to guard it. This type of mounting provides a richness of color and a three dimensional feel that is preferred by museums.   It is also possible to add mounting brackets to this type of presentation and not frame the image; another type of display commonly seen in museums.

 

Canvas:

A Giclee fine art process is applied to canvas.  This provides for a softer feel and look.   Many prefer the canvas process as it looks more like a painting.

Every image is meticulously inspected to meet our rigorous standards before shipping. If you are not completely satisfied with your work of art, simply return it within 90 days for a full refund or replacement
