Can giclée prints be produced on different paper types?

Yes, they can. There are many different finer giclée papers and canvases that you can chooses from. Obviously different print partners will stock different papers, some may offer unstacked papers by special request. Most reputable print partners will have sample packs of the papers that they stock to help you to choose which paper or canvas is best for your image and style of work.

To be classed as an authentic giclée print the paper must weigh in excess of 250gsm, with most coming in at around the 300gsm mark. Authentic giclée papers and canvases, coupled with authentic inks will mean that your giclée print should last a lifetime, with 100+ years colour permanence expected if the prints are kept in the correct conditions.
