Giclee Fine Art Prints (pronounced “gee-clay”) are extremely high quality, archival grade, digital prints that use an ultra fine inkjet printing process to produce images of intense colour and vibrancy. Giclee printing is widely regarded as one of the very best fine art printing methods currently available and has become extremely popular with artists and photographers displaying their images in art galleries, museums, and exhibitions. This sophisticated digital reproduction technology utilizes light-fast and UV-resistant pigment-based inks with more colours than regular printing, to produce beautiful digital reproductions that last much longer than those produced using traditional commercial fine art printing techniques. Giclee inks are lightfast to an extremely high standard, and are designed to be printed onto specially developed archival quality papers. The results are superb quality prints with unparalleled vibrancy and detail that should literally last well over a lifetime.
Although originally devised in America, the word “giclée” comes from the French verb “to spray” and refers to the ink being sprayed onto the paper. The name was originally applied to fine art prints created on Iris printers in a process invented in the early 1990s but has since come to mean any high quality ink-jet print.
Our Giclées are produced using state-of-the-art Epson printers with the highest quality pigmented inks. These long lasting prints (100 years by the Wilhelm Research Group) can be created on archival and acid free fine art paper or museum quality canvas sure to satisfy a serious fine art collector. Prints on giclee canvas are tougher and more durable than conventional paper prints. It has been consistently shown that giclee canvas lasts longer than anything else available on the market.
We offer a choice of Semi-gloss or Matte Finish. All canvases and Fine Art Paper Giclées have a 2” margin for stretching or matting.
