Our Art Papers
At Wild Like Art we believe that the type of paper we use makes a big difference in the final result of your art prints. That's why we choose to use Giclée papers for all of our printing as they are the best choice for our discerning customers.
Giclée papers provide the following benefits
- High-quality materials: Giclée papers are made from fine art printing papers that are specially formulated for use with high-quality printing equipment. These papers are made from a variety of materials, including cotton, alpha cellulose, and other high-quality fibres, which give them excellent printing properties and a long lifespan.
Archival quality: One of the biggest benefits of Giclée papers is that they are archival quality, meaning they are designed to last a long time without fading or discolouring. This is important as it ensures that the prints we produce will remain vibrant and true to the original artwork for many years.
Wide colour gamut: Giclée papers are designed to reproduce a wide range of colours, making them ideal for printing highly detailed and vibrant artwork. This allows us to achieve true-to-life reproductions of our artwork, with all the subtle nuances and details intact.
