Giclée Printing

Giclée Printing

All of our prints are Giclée as this printing method really remains superior in producing museum-level, high quality reproductions. 

Derived from the French term gicler – meaning ‘to squirt or spray’, the term describes a printing process whereby microscopic dots of pigment-based ink are sprayed onto archival-quality paper to ensure the fidelity of a limited edition print to an original artwork.

When Giclée printing was created in the 1980s, the fine art community experienced a breakthrough. This was, and remains to be, the closest an artist can get to matching their original 2-D artwork.

The richness, accuracy and depth of colour is achieved due to the method’s potential to achieve a huge colour gamut (the spectrum of colours distinguishable by the human eye). Unlike the four tones used in lithography, Giclées often use six: light cyan, cyan, light magenta, yellow and black.

Not only is the quality unmatched but the longevity of a Giclée print is far greater than other prints. It is believed that a Giclée will significantly outlast a lithographic print, keeping its vivid colour for up to 200 years.
Giclée prints are widely accepted by art buyers, galleries and museums as archival, collectable art pieces.
