Definition: The French word "giclée" (zhee-klay) is a feminine noun that means “jet of liquid”.
Substance: A "giclée print" denotes an evolution in printmaking technology. Images are generated from high resolution digital scans and printed with archival quality inks onto various substrates such as fine art canvas and photo-base paper. The giclée printing process provides better color accuracy than other means of reproduction.
Process: Using highly advanced pigment ink-technology, these masterful giclée prints have a lifespan of up to 120 years without any visible signs of fading. Utilizing Roland and Epson printers, these pieces of art are amazingly accurate.
Embellishment: Our exquisite hand-embellished limited edition prints are contour brush-stroked by the artist to emulate the rich textures of the original oil painting thus creating a unique piece for the collector.
Benefits: Giclée prints are advantageous to collectors who do not find it viable to purchase an original work, but do want to introduce an artist or style into their home or place of work. These affordable prints allow one to start a new collection, and make an impact in doing so!
Quality: The quality of the giclée print rivals traditional silver-halide and gelatin printing processes commonly found in museums, art galleries, and photographic galleries. Giclée prints render deep saturated colors and retain minute detail, subtle tints and blends. The prints produced are stunningly beautiful and reach museum perfection.
