Giclée Fine Art Prints
Giclée (pronounced "zee-clay") is a limited edition fine art print rendered at a museum-quality level. Created with continuous tone inkjet technology, the process is given the name "Giclée" which in French means "to spray." It is an exciting and relatively new medium for both artists and photographers because of its exceptional quality and longevity combined with the desirability of "printing on demand." Both media and pigments are 100% acid free. In a controlled environment, projected longevity (with no observable color changes) is eighty to one hundred years.
Giclée Fine Art Prints are widely accepted at museums and galleries throughout the United States and abroad. Many museums have either mounted exhibitions of Giclée prints or have purchased prints for their permanent collections.
