Giclée (pronounced "jhee-clay") is a term used to describe the process of making fine art prints from a digital source using ink-jet printing.
Our museum quality giclée reproductions are scanned in high-definition from the "original work of art". We print with premium-pigmented inks on 310 gsm Arches watercolor paper (rated not to fade for up to 115 years). Our giclées are adorned with a 1" - 3" border of textured watercolor paper and embossed with our official seal of authenticity.
