About Giclée Prints

The Definition : Giclée (zhee-klay) - The French word "giclée" is a feminine noun that means a fine spray of liquid. The word may have been derived from the French verb "gicler" meaning "to squirt". 

The Term : The term  "giclée print" connotes an elevation in printmaking technology. Images are generated from high resolution digital scans and printed with archival quality inks onto various substrates including canvas, fine art, and photo-base paper. The giclée printing process provides better color accuracy than other means of reproduction. 

The Process : Using the most advanced pigment ink technology, these Masterpiece Giclée prints have a lifespan of up to 120 years without any visible signs of fading. Utilizing Roland and Epson printers, these pieces of art are amazingly accurate replicas produced on a variety of fine art papers and canvases.

Embellishment: These exquisite embellished limited edition pieces are completely contour brush-stroked by Simon with a fine art medium that mirrors the rich textures of an original oil painting, and creates a unique piece for the client.

The Advantages : Giclée prints are advantageous to collectors who do not find it feasible purchase an original work, but do want to introduce an artist or style into their home or place of work.  Always a wonderful way to start a new collection, and make an impact in doing so!

The Quality : The quality of the giclée print rivals traditional silver-halide and gelatin printing processes and is commonly found in museums, art galleries, and photographic galleries.
