Giclée (noun) [zhee-klay]…a printmaking method using an ink-jet printer for photographic images of paintings to produce high-quality reproductions; also written giclee.
What is a Giclée?Simply put, a giclée is a high quality inkjet print reproduction. My team uses only the highest quality materials and archival inks to assure lasting print quality. I only sell “museum quality” limited edition giclées. A normal print will begin to fade after several years and, if exposed to sunlight, even quicker. My giclées will last, well, long enough to get dusty hanging in a museum.
To ensure the finest quality available, my team creates giclée prints after a complete photo scan of the original oil has taken place. Even my brush marks are evident in the giclée reproductions we recreate. The printer we currently use is a Epson Stylus Pro 11880 and the ink is Epson K3 UltraChrome Pigmented Ink. We print on “museum quality” paper: Breathing Color – Vibrance Rag, 325 gsm Fine Art Paper with High Gloss Baryta Finish, 100% cotton.
All of our giclées are Limited Edition Giclées. What does that mean? Most runs are limited to 250 prints. After those 250 have sold, that’s it! No more prints will be made. This is to ensure a market value of the reproduction in the future. All giclées are numbered and signed by me, the artist, and all come with Certificates of Authenticity, which is also signed and dated. If you collect my giclées, you can be sure you’re among a select group.
