History of Giclee´ Prints

A Giclee´ (pronounced Zhee-Clay) is a French phrase coined in the 17th Century who's meaning translates close to "fine spray" in English. The term is currently used regarding the latest form of high quality original art print production methodology using high end types of permanent pigment spray printers to produce original archival quality art prints. Giclee´ prints render deep saturated colors and have a beautiful painterly quality that retains minute detail, subtle tints and blends. The quality of the giclee print rivals traditional silver-halide and gelatin printing processes and is commonly found in museums, art galleries, and photographic galleries.

Quality is the top priority in my photographic prints.
Each and every piece is made by hand with the utmost care
and attention to detail using only the highest quality materials.

Chromata White™ Matte Canvas - a museum-grade poly cotton blend that delivers the purest consistency and industry leading Dmax value by a wide margin. This fine art canvas is bright white yet completely free of Optical Brightener Additives.

All canvases are printed with Ultrachrome pigment inks on 100% museum-grade poly cotton blend canvas giving a life span in excess of 85 years. The canvas will not stretch, sag or crack. It is an investment that will last a lifetime.....and more. The finished canvas is then hand coated with two coats of a Giclee varnish. This provides a protective barrier against UV light, moisture and other pollutants and means that the canvas can be hung almost anywhere without risk of damage. The canvas can easily be cleaned with a damp cloth.
