Margret’s oil paintings are for sale in the form of both lithograph and gicleé prints. We use only the finest archival inks and papers available.
A lithograph print is a very old process, based on utilizing a series of plates and traditional 4 ink colors (cyan, magenta, yellow, and black) to render an image onto paper. The process is more commonly referred to as “Offset printing” which is the same method used by magazine and other industries where many prints are made in a low cost method very quickly. Each plate “stamps” the appropriate color onto the surface based upon the right amount of ink necessary so when all 4 colors are applied, you get a color rich image.
Gicleé (pronounced zhee-clay) is a process that is pushing the leading edge of art print making today. A giclee print is made by the same process used when someone prints a photo on an inkjet printer at home. The French word gicleé means, literally, to spray or spurt of liquid or ink onto wide format printers which can have up to eight colors using archival papers or canvas. The giclee printmaking technique has gained the reputation as one of the greatest advancements in the artist print industry because one, two, or several can be made on order rather than in batches of hundreds or thousands.
