About Giclée Printing

Giclée (jhée-clay) - Derived from the french verb gicler meaning to squirt. Images are produced from high resolution digital files and printed with archival quality inks onto various substrates.

The giclée process provides better color accuracy than other means of reproduction. Another tremendous advantage with giclée printing is that the artwork can be reproduced to almost any size and on various media, giving the artist the ability to customize prints for a specific client.

Image permanence is a concern to artists and collectors alike. Latest test results show life expectancy rates of 100+ years for some giclée prints, when printed on good quality heavyweight art paper using the appropriate U.V. pigmented inks. The print should then possess archival standards of permanence comparable or better than other collectable artwork.
