What is a Giclee?

A Giclee is a digital-print process used to reproduce fine art.
This type of reproduction is done in a “digital darkroom” which consists of:

  • a scanner or camera
  • computer
  • wide-format fine art printer.

We use archival inks and paper to ensure the quality and the “life” of the fine art reproduction. They are printed on a variety of archival surfaces which are chemically treated to bond with the inks.

My husband Dave and I print our own giclees. This process requires an Understanding of the technical side of photoshop and a knowledgeable eye for “seeing” the subtleties of color and value.

We use:

  • For scanning: Canon (Professional high resolution Digital Camera)>
  • Printer: Epson 7800   8 color, wide-format fine art ink jet printer
  • Paper: Epson Premium Luster and Watercolor Paper
  • Pigments: Ultrachrome K3 inks

Archival quality:  Paper and inks are both rated for over 80 years.
