All of our giclee prints are supplied mounted and ready to frame. Depending on which
size print you order, your print will be supplied with at least a 2.5 inches double
mount using acid free white core mount board in white and gold.
It is our aim to provide our customers with the highest quality reproduction prints,
remaining as true to the original as possible. We achieve this by using top quality
materials and utilising the most modern methods of printing equipment. We use the
Giclee method of printing to create the highest quality of print. Each piece is printed
on 225gsm high quality museum grade archival art paper.
Our pigmented inks have been tested for light-fastness in conjunction with the papers
we use and have met or exceeded grade 6 on the blue wool scale, the test employed
by the Fine Art Trade Guild and the present industry standard.
What is Giclee method of printing?
Giclee is a printing method, suited to reproducing all types of fine art and fine
art mediums, creating prints that are almost indistinguishable from the original
in definition and richness of color. The painting to be printed is digitally alityphotographed
producing a large computer file (200Mb). This file is then matched to the original
painting and adjusted so that it will produce a true image on the paper or canvas.
The word Giclee (pronounced zhee-clay) comes from the French verb "to spray" and
refers to the fine stream of inks sprayed to form the image. The effect is similar
to an air brush technique, but much finer. More than four million droplets per second
are discharged through the printer heads.
