What is a Giclée Print?
Giclées are Museum quality Fine-Art reproductions, also called Archival Prints. These are the result of highly advanced digital printing technology.
A Fine-art Giclée is the closest to an original painting you can get. These artworks are made with an ultra-high-resolution fine-art printer, using nine cartridges of the very finest archival inks on acid free paper. Independent testing by Wilhelm Imaging Research Inc. (a world-leader in image-longevity testing) has established that these “Archival-Prints” or Giclées will last more than 100 years before any noticeable shift in colour integrity occurs. Unlike regular printed reproductions, Giclées are truly durable “Museum quality” Fine-Art reproductions.
The colour and artistic value, quality of materials, and overall looks make a Fine-art Giclée much more valuable and much more expensive to produce than any other type of reproduction. Its Market value increases even more, if it is of a limited edition of 100 pieces or less, and if it has been pencil signed and numbered by the Artist.
A Fine-art Giclée is created by tiny jets spraying millions of droplets of archival, pigmented inks onto a sheet of fine art, acid free paper or onto cotton canvas. This spray of ink, more that 4 million droplets per second, whirls onto paper spinning on a drum at 250 inches per second. Hence the name giclée is French for “fine spray.”
Precise computer calculations control nine ink jets that together produce 512 shades of dense, special quality ink. The information controlling the jets comes directly from a computer – no printing film or plates are involved. The computer’s information is scanned directly from the artist’s original work or a digital image of it. An art print emerges, of a superior quality than a serigraph or lithograph. A true Museum-quality Fine-Art reproduction.
All prints are superb quality shipped in stay flat mailer and protected with print protector bag for long-term storage and good protection for shipping. A piece of cardboard will be added for an extra support for shipping. The prints ship within 1-3 weeks of order date, depending of the location.
