Original paintings being scanned The Krehbiel giclee prints start with an extremely high-resolution scan of the original painting. Scanning is done using the BetterLight capture system. This is a wall mounted digital scanner especially designed for the fine art market. It produces an incredible RGB 8-bit 350 megabyte file with no interpolation! The superior lighting system allows capture of the painting’s texture while preserving the finest detail and wide color gamut. An Industry standard, this system literally has no peers.
Print reproductions of the scanned image are made using Giclee printing. Giclee (pronounced Gee’clay) is a French term meaning to spray or squirt, which is how an inkjet printer works. However, this is not the same as a standard desktop inkjet printer and is much larger and more detailed. Giclee is widely recognized as the best way to produce archival quality reproductions of fine art and photography.
Each Krehbiel giclee print is custom printed to your order in the U.S.A. by highly skilled craftsmen and artisans. Prints are produced on an Epson SureColor
Epson Giclee Printer S80600 state-of-the-art printer. The 64-inch Epson SureColor features newly developed Epson UltraChrome 9-color solvent ink for outstanding photographic print quality and durability. The UltraChrome PRO nine-color pigmented ink set allow for both an incredible color gamut, and outdoor archival properties with a fine art resolution to boot! The heating system opens the pores of the canvas allowing the ink to bond with the canvas itself. Upon cooling no topcoat is required.
Krehbiel giclee prints are produced on archival quality canvas. The recommended canvas is Urth Satin canvas made in the U.S.A. This is 22 MIL, 400 GSM OBA free poly-cotton solvent canvas that is archival certified for 100+ years display life. The resulting print will be a treasure for you and generations to come.
After printing, each giclee canvas print is mounted to a stretcher. The default stretcher is a 3/4-inch-thick frame made from high-quality pine sourced from sustainable FSC certified forests. The edges of the picture are mirrored for the wrapped section over the sides of the frame so none of the original picture is lost. The canvas is stapled on the back of the stretcher frame for clean looking edges. This produces a beautiful picture which can be left alone and displayed as a “gallery wrap” or inserted into a standard size picture frame. (Picture frames not included.) An example of the "mirror wrap" edges along with other potential options is shown below.
