Many of you have asked ...  What is a Giclée Print?  

We offer original paintings, Giclée  prints and open prints. The exceptional reproduction method of “Giclée” means ‘spray with ink” in French. Giclée prints are created by scanning original artwork digitally and printing them using a specialized color printer that sprays tiny, precisely controlled drops of ink onto paper or canvas. The process guarantees a highly faithful reproduction of the original work at a very high resolution. Giclée is digital printmaking technology with great advantages in beauty, quality and durability. 

Unlike traditional printing media such as stone, wood, metal, and screen, there is no noticeable difference between the 250th art print and the first one because the digital image and printing process do not degrade with use.
Dozens of museums have mounted exhibitions or purchased Giclée Prints for their permanent collections. These include The Metropolitan Museum (New York), the Guggenheim (New York), the Museum of Fine Arts (Boston), the Kennedy Center for Performing Arts (DC), and the Smithsonian Institution Libraries, among others.
To care for your Giclée print, as with any fine art, do not hang in direct sunlight or in rooms with excessive moisture. Care for them as you would any fine artwork on paper or canvas.
