What exactly is a Giclée print?
Giclée (pronounced zhee-clay) prints are produced from digital images which are output by high-resolution ink-jet printers. Unlike off-set lithography which requires separations, film and plates, the scanned image is sent directly to the printer. The process yields rich vibrant color. Done properly, Giclée prints are hard to distinguish from original artwork. Highly collectable, Giclée prints are an established medium in the fine arts community and are well accepted in museums and galleries around the world.
Giclée prints are published on 100% cotton rag watercolor paper. The pigment based inks used are the best the industry has to offer, giving fade and color shift protection for 100 – 125 years in average indoor light conditions. Giclée prints should be treated with the same care given to original works of art. We recommend UV glass which provides additional protection and archival framing to preserve the neutral pH environment.
Each limited edition print is signed and numbered. With proper care, they may be enjoyed for generations.
