The print-on-demand technology, allows artists to experiment with their images and minimise the amount of capital tied up in stock. As more and more artists begin to recognize the benefits that Gicle printing has to offer to the fine art market, Epson continues to be the fine-art brand of choice, due to its high-quality, light-fast print technology.
