Differences Between C-Type And Giclée Prints


Digital C-type printing is a LED or Laser light process and the printer is often known as Lightjet or Lambda. We print on a Chromira printer, the latest generation in digital c-type printers, which uses papers that are light sensitive, containing silver crystals overlapped and suspended in emulsion that are exposed, developed and fixed to produce a continuous tone true photographic image. 
Meanwhile Giclée ink jet printing is a dry process whereby ink is sprayed directly onto a paper in a series of dots known as a half-tone pattern.


Digital C-type printing employs traditional photographic C-type papers, which have been modified for digital exposure with a LED or Laser.

Here you can choose from: Fuji crystal archive C-Type: Matt, Gloss, Flex and Kodak Endura Metallic.

With Giclée printing there is a much greater range of paper weight, surface texture and paper whites.  Papers range from bright white to creamy yellow toned paper and those that are very smooth matt papers to ones that are highly textured. This allows the photographer or artist a greater choice in what paper suits their image. At theprintspace we work with: Hahnemühle Photo Rag; Hahnemühle Pearl; Hahnemühle Semi-gloss; Hahnemühle Etching; Harman Warmtone; Canson Baryta Photographique and Cansen Aquarelle Rag.

Hahnemühle Photo Rag:

The super matt finish of Hahnemüle Photorag makes this paper one of our most popular papers amongst artists, illustrators & photographers alike. The paper gives muted blacks with even colour reproduction, and excellent detail. The surface has minimal texture with a chalky smooth cotton feel which creates smooth colour gradients. It has a delicate surface, so we recommend extra care when handling.Photorag is suitable for mounting but its cotton texture means edges can fray if not carefully handled.

Hahnemühle Pearl:

Hahnemüle Pearl has a smooth orange peel texture and a bright neutral white base, it creates really natural black and white images and offers vibrant colour reproduction and great detail too. The paper is resin coated with a fibrous feel. The satin finish of the resin coating gives depth to the image which combined with the texture and vibrant colour reproduction give the image the feel of an oil painting. This is one of the most suitable of the Giclée Art Paper range for mounting.

Hahnemühle Semi-gloss:

Hahnemühle Etching:

This heavyweight paper has a slightly warm base tone and a strong mottled texture. It creates a print with strong colours and deep blacks that feel rich and high in contrast. This is due to the texture of the paper enabling it to hold more ink and capture the light. The German Etching is one of our heavier weight Giclée art printing papers. With its weight and strong texture this paper gives an artwork a handmade crafted feel.Hahnemüle German Etching is a robust Giclée paper, meaning it doesn’t tend to fray as much at the edges.

Harman Warmtone:

Canson Baryta Photographique:

Canson Aquarelle Rag:


C-Type’s have much more subtlety in tone than Giclée prints. This is because printers using silver based photographic papers like theprintspace’s c-type chromira printer are known as continuous tone. They are capable or generating many tonal values for each pixel unit on the paper. Not only can a pixel be either red, green and blue at the same time, but it can also have different intensities of red, green and blue. 

Due to the continuous tone nature, c-type prints have smoother gradients from light to dark and have more subtlety of tone especially in shadow areas and skin tones. 

Whereas Giclée or inkjet printer resolutions are described in dots per inch, which describes the number of locations per inch which the printer can print a dot or not print a dot, we can’t vary the density of the dot we can only specify its location. Therefore inkjet printers use a halftone or dithering process whereby more dots are placed in darker areas and less dots in lighter areas to create the illusion of tone.

Giclée texture papers can be used to give a fine art feel to a print with more choice in terms of paper thickness and texture. The other major advantage for Giclée printing is the ability to reproduce highly saturated colours : something traditional printing methods cannot achieve.

This digital image illustrates that in comparison Giclée prints are able to produce more vivid and saturated colours due to the bright pigments used to make up the inks (see peaks at either end). In contrast c-types prints are better at smooth gradients which you can see from smoother steps from red through to cyan across the image.

Giclée’s are often used by illustrators and artists in art reproduction as they can accurately represent the original medium such as German etching resembling an original watercolour.


The archival properties of C-Type’s last around 40 years in daylight and 80 years in correct storage conditions in the dark.

Giclée’s, also last for around 40 years in daylight and 200 years in the dark.
