What is a Giclée?

Giclée (pronounced g-clay) is a fine art print from a digital source printed by ink-jet. The name refers to the French term for “spray” which is how the pigment is applied. When printed on fine art paper or canvas, and using archival pigments, they are rated to last up to 100 years. Artists work with a printer to accurately capture the color and detail of the original painting for the highest quality image.

The numbers you see on a print (1/100) indicate the sequence the print holds in the edition and the total number of prints in the edition (1 = first print created/100 = total number of prints.)

As with all art, care should be taken to keep prints protected from direct sunlight and moisture by using proper framing, archival mats and backing, and glass or Plexiglas over images on paper.
