Will all art reproduce well as giclée prints?

There are certain things to consider when you set out on your first giclée print journey.

You need to be aware that metallic colours will not reproduce faithfully. Giclée printers do not use metallic inks. So gold, silver, bronze and copper are a bit of a problem. There are ways to reproduce the look of the colours, but they will never be appear as a metallic colour. The best way around this problem is to hand embellish your prints. Most giclée print substrates will accept paint, so you can paint the areas that should be metallic, making each print totally individual.
