You are here: HOMEReprints/What is Giclee

Any of my original work that that I print on paper or canvas is done to museum quality standard. The originals are digitally photographed at a high resolution. They are then printed using pigment inks on archival surfaces. This is a reproduction of an original piece of art. Giclée is a fine art term describing high quality, short-run prints. These prints have sharp detail with fine tonal graduations and terrific colour accuracy.

The term Giclee Prints denotes superior printing technology to other processes that are more complex and less cost effective. The image is printed with the latest generation of archival quality inks, using inkjet printers with a high grade 10-colour pigment ink system profiled for accurate colour reproduction. The paper is Hahnemuhle Photorag 308gsm. This is a heavy-duty matt paper made of 100% cotton rag, with a natural white tone. The image is printed at 1440 dpi, with 8 passes.

The giclee printing process provides better colour accuracy and colour gamuts than other means of reproduction.

Prints are sharp, detailed, and vibrant, with an impressive colour gamut and vividness that lasts 200 years. I use for my giclee printing.

I also have numerous reprints or reproductions of my original work simply printed with a good quality laser printer at a local printers. These images are mounted and reasonably priced. Recently, I have also used my woodcuts on postcards. The white-line woodcuts are particularly interesting and unique in the postcard market! I also put other images on greeting cards, mugs, tote bags, and sometimes t-shirts. I am always trying to have something at a price to suit any budget. If someone is attracted to a piece I have created, I am grateful for the attention and one should be able to take it home without suffering a high cost!
