What is a Giclée?

A Giclée (pronounced ‘Gee-clay’) is a French phrase, literally meaning ‘to squirt’. Infinitely small dots of rich, vibrant archival inks are applied to the chosen ground (media) such as paper or canvas rendering an amazingly smooth and consistent image of Gallery/Museum Quality with a lightfastness in excess of 125 years.

Our Service – Original Artwork is scanned creating a digital file which is then colour corrected where necessary and calibrated to suit the chosen ground (media – acid free watercolour papers, canvas, photo papers are just a few of the choices available). The image is then produced via our Epson SureColor P7000 wide format printer with a resolution of up to 2880 dpi (dots per inch) using Epson’s 11 colour Ultrachrome® HDR Pigment Ink set which offers vibrant colour and black & white prints.

Giclée Prints are the perfect medium for established and emerging artists, allowing you much better control of your cash flow. You can order prints as required, no minimum order, without any of the large upfront costs associated with offset lithography. You could for instance order just one reproduction to mount and frame as a display piece then order more as your orders come in. We will keep an archived copy of your image exclusively for the production of your edition.
