When trying to find the next best thing to decorate your new place with, giclee prints are a viable option. They are convenient, beautiful, and easy to use. Not only that, but they are much cheaper than buying handmade work.
With giclee prints becoming more and more popular among homeowners and renters everywhere, it's important to know just why. Here are the reasons that giclee prints are the way to go.
What are Giclee Prints?
If you're unfamiliar with what giclee prints are, you're not alone. I didn't know what the heck they were at first either, but they're actually very common. Giclee prints are fine art digital prints made by inkjet printers. The images are taken from high quality original pieces and are produced and printed on canvas. So really, when you're purchasing a giclee print you are getting the best copied version of an original piece to hang in your home.
These pieces of art are extremely convenient. They all come pre-stretched, in a frame, and ready to hang on your walls the second you bring it in the door. They are also a great way to decorate your home with something special that looks amazing. Since they are substantially cheaper than handmade artwork, you will be able to have many of these amazing pieces scattered throughout your home. They can turn even the drabbest of houses into a classy home.
You will also be able to have amazing reproductions of classic artwork that you wouldn't normally be able to purchase. They are made on canvas – giving it an original look for a much cheaper price.
A couple of disadvantages of giclee prints are that they aren't original and they aren't as high quality as a handmade piece of art. So really, a large number of people could have the same piece of artwork hanging in their home, which to some people may dissuade them from purchasing a giclee print. Since they are made by inkjet printers onto canvas or paper, they lack the “original" look and even feel of a real piece of artwork – even if they look almost identical.
Why Should You Choose Giclee Prints?
Overall, giclee prints offer a number of advantages that I have listed above, but the main reason you should use giclee prints over other methods of artwork is simply because they are a quick, cheap way to spruce up your home and make it look professional and artistic. It's also a very good way for you to decide if a giclee print is what's right for you or if you would eventually like to try a handmade piece. They're a very good “starter" decoration if you're an art buff and just can't afford a handmade piece quite yet.
Giclee prints offer many different advantages that can provide your home with class, entertaining decoration, and an artsy feel to your home. Despite the very few disadvantages, giclee prints are definitely the way to go when choosing artwork for your home.
