All Giclee Prints come with a Certificate of Authenticity. All Giclee Prints were produced on acid free, 100% cotton, 300 gram per square meter, fine art rag paper, using archival pigment based ink technology.
In independent testing by Wilheim Imaging Research, the leading authority on print permanence, this paper-ink combination has been rated to last 100+ years under glass, 55+ years unprotected before noticeable fading occurs.
The word Giclee (jhee-clay) is derived from the French word gicler which means "spraying" or "spurting," indicating a technique which uses non-interrupted fine streams of ink to get ink colors onto the substrate.
The term "Giclee Print" connotes an elevation in print making technology. Images are generated from high resolution digital scans and printed with archival quality inks onto various substrates.
The Giclee Printing process provides higher resolution and better color accuracy than other printing techniques. The Giclee Print virtually captures every nuance of an original painting.
The quality of the Giclee Print rivals traditional silver-halipe and gelatin printing processes and is commonly found in museums, art galleries and photographic galleries.
