What is a Giclée Print?

The Giclée, translated from the French as “a spraying of ink,” is produced by an ink jet printing process in conjunction with computerized imaging and fine art printmaking techniques. The final piece has a higher resolution than a traditional lithographic print and the color range is wider than a serigraph. A giclée is a fine watercolor print with an extra strength Ultra-Violet coating. Since the giclées are reproduced onto canvas, they are not required to be covered by glass when framing.

A giclée provides unsurpassed depth of color offering some of the most archival inks and substrates available. The result is a museum quality reproduction of the original painting.

“I am very happy and proud to present a collection of my paintings as giclées on canvas. Owning an original painting is always a joy and very special, but now you have the opportunity to enjoy that same image on canvas at a very reasonable cost. I feel the reproductions on canvas are so beautiful and accurate to the original that you will be thrilled to have one or more in your collection.”
