Giclée printing and dye sublimation

The word Giclée was first used by Nash Editions in the early 90's. They wanted a word to describe their new inkjet product.They had to differentiate it from other printing technologies. They came up with Giclee (spraying of ink in French) as a marketing tool to hype their new printing system. As the years have passed, the term signifies the highest quality print that can be made using the inkjet process.

Giclée printing at Boston Photo Imaging is available in large and small sizes. Whether you are an individual or an institution, we can help you achieve beautiful and lasting results. Make yourself stand out as an artist by taking advantage of our printing capabilities. You can also make precious gifts out of your personal images for your friends and family.

We print on a variety of substrates such as photographic paper, fine art paper, satin cloth, canvas, metal plates, ceramic tiles, and glass plates. Our Epson wide format printers use eight to eleven unique inks - providing a complete range, the best hues, and brilliant depth in the image.

Many years of perfecting inkjet technology has helped BPI become one of the finest providers of high quality inkjet printing. Experience, quality equipment and the finest materials allow BPI to produce the highest quality prints available.

Printing in the Past

Boston Photo Imaging has produced high quality photographic prints since 1990. Originally a full service photo lab, BPI originally produced photographic "C prints" using traditional darkroom methods.

It became evident in the mid 90's that digital printing would be the wave of the future. BPI purchased The Kodak LED 20 inch digital printer in 1993. This printer was our first step into digital printing. LED's exposed the image on to photographic paper and was processed using traditional photographic chemicals.

Following the LED printer, BPI moved into inkjet printing. The first printer was the Novajet Pro 50 in 1996. Since that time BPI has constantly upgraded to the latest inkjet technologies. Large format Epson printers using archival pigmented inks are now being used to do all of our printing. All inks and substrates used at BPI are archival.
