Giclee

About the process. . .

The process, pronounced “zhee-clay,” was developed at least a decade ago and involves inkjet printing, which is typically vGoghdone on fine art watercolor paper or canvas. Artists’ originals are scanned and reproduced via the computer. Giclee is a French word that can be translated to “fine spray.”

Giclee reproductions allow the artist to order prints-on-demand, ordering according to their needs and not what  their printer demands. They have a choice of media and their personal enhancement to make each print unique. Giclees can be numbered to create limited editions. We offer a Certificate of Authenticity to document the year of issue and the edition size for original works of art.


According to the Art Publishers Association,

“Giclee is the fastest growing segment of the fine arts market.”
