Print Guide

This page is designed to give you more information about how the prints are made, what Giclee is, the sizes etc.

WHAT IS A GICLEE PRINT?

The word Giclée (“g-clay”), is derived from the French verb gicler meaning “to squirt or spray”, Giclée, is used to describe a fine art digital printing process combining pigment based inks with high quality archival quality paper to achieve Giclée prints of superior archival quality, light fastness and stability.

The Giclée printing process involves squirting or spraying microscopic dots of pigment-based ink onto high quality art paper. The image is colour corrected to attain the closest possible match to the original work if required. These corrections are called Artist’s Proofs. The digital information is fine tuned to the type of paper, further ensuring fidelity to the original.
