What is a Giclée print?
A giclée print (pronounced "zhee-clay") is a high quality archival pigment inkjet print on acid-free paper or canvas. It has superior lightfastness and stability, and will last without fading for at least several hundred years with proper care. Giclée prints are made using a carefully prepared high resolution digital image and professional wide format 8-12 color printers. I hand-craft my giclée prints with a color-calibrated computer system and 17" printer. These are reproductions of original paintings and other digital creations, which I make one at a time in small limited editions. For larger pieces, I work with a local specialist, Richard Kahne at JetArt. All paper prints have a generous paper border for framing, and mounted canvas prints have hand-painted edges, are varnished, and are ready to hang. Each print is signed and numbered, and includes a certificate detailing all of its specifications.
