GICLEE INKJET PRINTS: WHY THEY ARE SUPERIOR

Giclee (pronounced “jhee-clay”) is a French word meaning “to spray”

Over the last few years, the technology of printing artwork on paper or canvas utilizing an inkjet printer, has advanced immeasurably. Today, the best of these printers can make true museum-quality fine art prints that achieve an incredible wide range of intense, rich color and crisp saturation that simply isn’t possible with any other printing process.  In addition, with the development of archival inks and mediums (canvas and paper), the longevity of these works has increased dramatically.

THE CREATION OF YOUR PRINT

This Limited Edition Archival Giclee print was created utilizing a state-of-the-art, 8-color, inkjet printer and represents the finest balance between craftsmanship, archival canvas and ink permanence that is available today.

  • Printed on Archival Matte Canvas, acid free, and mounted on an archival substrate
  • Printed with 8 Archival Pigmented Inks, not dye inks that quickly fade
  • Hand embelished with UV block clear acrylic gel

CARING FOR YOUR PRINT

We recommend that you care for your print as you would an original work of art.  Never expose any type of artwork to prolonged sunlight, either direct or indirect. Do not display art under standard fluorescent lights – they radiate tremendous amounts of UV rays.  Avoid displaying or storing in humid conditions.  Protect your print from harsh environments such as smoke and airborne cooking grease.

When framing, hire a professional picture framer and insist upon conservation framing techniques and materials.  Since your print has been coated with a protective UV block clear acrylic gel, you will not want to use glass.

Framed and displayed properly, your print will last more than years – it will last for generations.
