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 Silver Gelatin Print created in the darkroom by Ted Ledbetter.
