A giclée (pronounced “zhee-clay”)
is a supreme-quality fine art print
made on an archival inkjet printer.
This printing process provides
better color accuracy than other means of reproduction – the
printed image has all the detail, subtle tones and colors of the original painting.
My limited edition giclées are
made on an Epson Pro Stylus, using UltraChrome K3 archival inks on Ultrasmooth Fine Art paper. This professional high-performace fine art paper is 100% cotton rag, mold-made paper, that is also acid-free, lignin-free, and pH buffered, producing stunning museum-quality prints which, if kept out of direct sunlight, will hold their color for 100-200 years. I also make prints on acid-free cotton blend canvas, and mount them archivally on cradled hardboard.
In order to maintain the value of my
Limited Editions, I make only 25 prints in each of three sizes on fine art paper, and 25 in each of two or three sizes on gallery-wrapped canvas, in addition to a Limited Edition of 25 ACEOs (Collectible Art Cards).
All sizes refer to the image size itself; the paper size is a little larger, leaving a white margin all around for matting or trimming.
