Canvas Prints (Giclée)
The word “giclée” (pronounced “zhee-clay”) is a French term meaning “to spray ink.”  This process results in a higher resolution than traditional lithography printing and a wider color range than a serigraph.  A large-bed scanner is used to capture the original image and our artists oversee all work to ensure the best representation of each original painting. Using a 12 color printer, an ink jet (smaller than a human hair) sprays a micro-fine mist of ink in a smooth, continuously-toned print onto Fine Art paper or canvas.  This application occurs at the rate of 4 million 1.5 micron droplets (smaller than a red blood cell) per second, one line at a time.  We use giclée inkjet printing to make reproductions of our original two-dimensional artwork. Per print, our professionally-produced giclée prints are much more expensive than the four-color offset lithography process traditionally used for such reproductions. Giclée printing has the added advantage of allowing us total control of the production of our images, including the colors and the substrates on which they are printed.  You will notice our giclée prints are difficult to distinguish from the original work of art, thus giving our customers the “look and feel” of original art “without the extra zeros added to the price”!!!!
