Giclée Art Print Reproductions  (Info Only)

Giclée ("zhee-clay"), a French word meaning "that which is sprayed or squirted" is a highly advanced method of computer-controlled, fine-art reproduction using archival dye-based inks. A sophisticated ink-jet printer designed specifically for this process creates a near-continuous-tone image on fine-art media such as watercolor paper and canvas with greater permanence than previous processes used to print lithographic art reproductions.

A giclée print is an individually produced, high-resolution print made using a new sophisticated wide format inkjet printer technology. A state-of-the-art digital printer sprays millions of drops of ink per square inch onto specially treated canvas or paper, producing a large archival quality image with brilliant velvety colors, crisp contrasts and razor-sharp details. Our printer uses 12 colors to produce the most vibrant colors.  Our canvas is primed with Ultra White primer.

Giclée prints are advantageous to artists who do not find it feasible to mass produce their work, but want to reproduce their art as needed, or on-demand. Once an image is digitally archived, additional reproductions can be made with minimal effort and reasonable cost. The prohibitive up-front cost of mass production for an edition is eliminated. Archived files will not deteriorate in quality as negatives and films inherently do. Another tremendous advantage of giclée printing is that digital images can be reproduced to almost any size and onto various media, giving the artist the ability to customize prints for a specific client.
