What is a Giclee print?
The French word 'Giclee' (zhee-klay) means a spray or a spurt of liquid.
Images are generated from high resolution digital scans or photography of original artwork and printed with archival quality inks onto various substrates, including canvas, fine art, and photo-base paper. The Giclee printing process provides better colour accuracy than other means of reproduction. Archival quality ensures that the prints are light-fast and non-water soluble. Giclee prints are created using professional 8-Colour to 12-Colour ink-jet printers.
These modern technology printers are capable of producing incredibly detailed prints for both the fine art and photographic markets.
The quality of a Giclee prints is such a high quality that they are commonly found in museums, art galleries, and photographic galleries. Our colour managed workflow, use of museum grade papers and archival pigment inks, ensures your images are as close to the original painting as is possible to achieve.
