The word Giclee' is French for "to spray on" or "to spray ink". The original artwork is scanned and then sent directly to a high resolution ink jet printer. The prints are produced on a selection of watercolor papers, archival quality artist paper, or canvas, creating a look and feel similar to the original piece.
Independent research has established that the pigment-based inks and archival media we use have achieved a level of performance that meets the high standards of the demanding fine-art market and exceeds the longevity of other processes. Testing indicates that the combination of inks and media can be expected to last for more than 100 years without fading even when displayed in well-illuminated environments.
This type of Art Reproduction is becoming the new standard in the Art Reproduction industry, and is widely recognized for its quality by major Galleries, Museums, Publishers, and Artists, all around the World. A Giclee Print is the closest duplication of an original artwork that is humanly, technically, or mechanically achievable.
