What is Giclee Printing?

Giclée printing is a process that uses fade-resistant, archival inks and archival substrates to print on large format printers. This process is often used by artists to make reproductions of their original artwork, photographs or computer-generated art for resale while preserving the original. The term Giclée printing is based on the French word “le gicleur” meaning “nozzle”, or more specifically “gicler” meaning “to squirt, spurt, or spray”. 

 

Print Choices
You have the option of choosing a size, or customizing a size of your choosing, printing on archival paper with archival inks, or selecting an embellished print on canvas, poster print or printed on glossy heavy paper.
