Giclée Print Information


     Giclée prints combine state of the art digital technology with centuries old printmaking tradition. The word "giclée" is French for "the spritzing or spraying of ink: The giclee process begins with the digital acquisition of the image, in the form of either a digital scan of the original art or a high resolution drum scan of a transparency or negative.  The digital image is then sized, cropped, and color matched for output.  Once proofing begins, the artist and the printmaker form a created partnership the goal being the best possible realization of the artist's vision. Gicl ées can be made to exactly reproduce the original, or add subtle changes to enhance the color and contrast of the image, all at the discretion of the artist. Once the final proof (also known as a bon-a-tier) is signed by the artist, the actual printing is ready to begin.
     Canvas, paper, fabric or other substraits are fed into the printer where a set of ink nozzles traverses the medium. An incredibly small stream of ink is directed at the substrait.  This stream of ink is composed of individual droplets, each about three picolitres in volume, tinier than a red blood cell.  The process is controlled by the computer to provide an image that is faithfully reproduced on the substrait.
     All substraits are acid free and of archival quality.  We coat all our prints with a UV protectant.
     Brilliant color and rich texture have made gicl ée prints the reproduction of choice for artist, photographers, museums, galleries, and collectors.  Giclée editions are usually smaller in number than lithography, serigraphy, or off-set printing, making them much more valuable.  Unlike traditional printmaking processes, the printed image in a giclée edition will be as vibrant and clear as the first.
