The Contemporary Giclee has become a valuable part of the limited edition fine art world.
The French term "Giclee" means to spray ink. The giclee process was originally developed
in 1989 as a digital alternative to traditional lithographic reproduction.
Giclees are created by a method of printing in which the image is scanned and digitally enhanced on a computer to match the original fine art. The image is then sent to a high - resolution inkjet printer, which sprays millions of microscopic droplets of ink onto various substrates to create an image with smooth tonal gradation.
Today, images reproduced using the Giclee Process are of cuch a high quality that they can be found on display at museums around the world, including The Louvre, The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim.

Giclee prints on canvas look exquisite, beautiful, impressive and elegant. Their "Museum Quality" gives you the prestige of a serious fine art collector. The natural texture of the canvas gives to the print the exact look and feel of original oil paintings.
Canvas prints (Giclees) do not need to be framed with protective glass so the image can be seen clearly without bothersome glares. Canvas reprints (Giclee) are tougher and far more durable than paper prints. A Giclee print on canvas is your closest option to an original oil painting!
