    What is a Giclée?
    Join email list


    A Giclée (pronounced "zhee-clay") is a museum quality fine art print. The giclée process allows for the portrayal of the finest detail and vibrancy of the artist's original image. These limited edition prints are signed and numbered by the artist, and include a certificate of authenticity.

    The word "giclée" was created by the IRIS company, and is French for "to spray". Each giclée is printed on an IRIS printer, which delivers a fine spray of ink onto a sheet of heavyweight, acid free watercolor paper. The inks are formulated from four extremely light fast dyes, which yield a lifespan of greater than 70 years before noticeable fading occurs.
