LIMITED EDITION PRINTS

Micropix, the Limited Edition specialists, 900 Walt Whitman Road, Melville, New York describe the Iris giclee print making process as follows:

"Iris Giclee (pronounced zhee-clay) printmaking offers one of the highest degrees of accuracy and richness of color available in any reproduction technique. Prominent art museums such as the Moma, Guggenheim, smithsonian, Los Angeles Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York have hosted exhibitions featuring Iris Giclees. Iris Giclees have been displayed in galleries around the world. Renowned Giclee artists include Andrew and Jamie Wyeth, david Hockney and Robert Rauschenberg.

The patented printing technology utilizes microscopically fine droplets of ink to form the image. A print can consist of nearly 20 billion ink droplets. The microscopic droplets of ink vary in size (approximately the size of a red blood cell) and density. This unique patented feature produces a near continuous tone image, smoother gradation between tones, and a more finely differentiated color palette.

Iris Giclee printmaking provides a luminosity and brilliance that represent the artistís original work better than any reproduction technique available today. Offset Lithography (i.e. commercial printing) is limited to the traditional four-color process and is normally printed on 80 pound coated stock paper. This does not approach the quality of an Iris Giclee printed on 100% rag paper. Iris Giclee printmaking should not be confused with color Xerox copies (laser prints) which have neither the fine resolution, color quality, skilled color professionals working with the artist, nor longevity suitable for framing.

The Equipoise ink set is used in our printmaking process. This ink set has been extensively tested by Wilhelm Imaging Research, Inc., an independent research firm in Grinnell, Iowa. Wilhelm Imaging research is the leading authority in testing imaging materials (inks, papers, etc.) for longevity. Equipoise is the longest lasting ink set available today that produces a very wide color gamut.

Our combination of sophisticated printmaking techniques and superior ink and paper provide you with a museum quality limited edition print.
