Giclee (jhee-clay) – Derived from the french verb gicler meaning to squirt, to spray. The term giclee print typically connotes a certain elevation in printmaking technology.
A giclee is a high resolution digital print and is a recognized fine art print category like lithographs and serigraphs. Giclee is considered the world’s best technique for reproducing original works of art and for printing digitally created art .
Giclee prints look and feel like original art. Prints are made on real artist materials such as watercolor papers and canvas.

Image permanence is a concern to artists and collectors.
We use UltraChrome inks which is very stable, giving fade & color shift resistance of 90 years on watercolor paper under average indoor light conditions.
