Do you know that
The advanced quality of Giclee artwork reproduction makes it the top choice over older, inferior techniques. With almost total control over the final product, Giclee printing gives artists more freedom than ever before. Individual requirements can easily be accommodated for each client/buyer, including changes in size, color, what the image is printed on, and alterations within the image itself.

When printed on canvas, the print can be beautifully stretched, varnished, textured, or gallery wrapped which is a very popular choice among artists recently. When printed on paper, a client/buyer has the choice of which type is used with the option of varnishing or deckling. All finished pieces resemble the original work so closely that they often look identical and are hard to distinguish from one another.

We gladly consult and educate each of our clients/buyers about the Giclee industry, fine art publishing, and copyright laws. Certificates of authenticity are supplied to our clients/buyers to ensure that their print is of the highest quality. We also help artists in putting their work out there and increasing sales by connecting them with galleries and by featuring their work in our own fine art Giclee gallery website.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Giclée?
The word 'Giclée' is associated with:
1) fine art reproduction PROCESS
2) the product of the process which is PRINT.
Giclee PRINT is a superior museum quality reproduction which became most popular in the past decade.

What is the advantage of Giclée Prints comparing to other fine art reproduction techniques?
Giclée printers use archival inks which make the archival properties of giclées much higher than lithography or silkscreen prints. Special inks we use in our printers have a light fastness rating up to 200 years. In most cases Giclees are going to last longer then oil, acrylic and other medium originals. Visual giclees are also some times better then originals.

Are the all the prints smudge-proof, waterproof?
Yes, they are, coated or not. UV protective coating/varnishes add more durability. Watercolor paper prints are more resistant to smudge and water damage then watercolor painting. Framing behind glass is still highly recommended.

How long are my prints are going to last?
Under normal lighting conditions, our inks will not show noticeable fading for at least 200 years. Although it is recommended by ink and media manufacturers that prints must not be exposed to direct sunlight. If you handle giclee as any original artwork then it will last longer then an original artwork.
