- Dec 15, 2009Hi Barb
I recently printed on giclee, which is a high end ink jet process
and it worked out very well. The giclee was very receptive, amazingly so. The initial experiments resulted in a very crisp rich black, with exacting detail and full coverage.
The particulars of the piece linked to: printed damp on steel backed photopolymer plates on Somerset Vellum Photo Enhanced 505 gsm mouldmade paper. The paper itself likes a very sticky ink and a goodly impression. The ink was Graphic Chemical's Senefelders Litho Black, with transparent white as a base and a bit of a very old purple letterpress ink to enhance the background coloration of the giclee.

So I'd contact her for advice. Otherwise I'll weigh in on my new fave paper for letterpress: Strathmore Drawing! I suspect the company changed the formula for this relatively cheap paper and it happens to print beautifully! Maybe there's less sizing in it now...? It's got a nice weight, too. -Barb
