Giclée is a High Quality Print
The word Giclée is used to describe a fine art high-quality inkjet printing process that combines mineral pigment - based inks with substrates on high-quality paper, i.e., high permanence.
The word Giclée (“jiclê”) derives from the French verb gicler, which means “to squirt”. It is a neologism coined about 30 years ago, in the early 1990s, by Print Master Jack Duganne (1942-2020).
Giclée printing allows me to reproduce my artistic works with guaranteed quality, permanence and fidelity to the original.
Estimates of the aging of a Giclée reproduction – based on laboratory analyzes – point to resistance to fading and color change of up to 86 years when exposed under glass and more than 200 years when stored in the dark at 22.7ºC and 50% room humidity.

In resume, the quality of a Giclée print is far superior to all other forms of reproduction printing. It has a extremely high level of quality, longevity and value compared to a standard print.
If you can choose, choose a Giclée print to take home. ♡♡
