Giclee Prints

Giclée prints are large format reproductions made from original art or photographs printed on a variety of media, watercolour paper, 100% cotton canvas, photographic paper, or other material.

This type of art reproduction is becoming the new standard in the art industry, and is widely embraced for its quality by major museums, galleries, artists, publishers, and photographers.

Giclée prints have captured the imaginations of many artists and photographers because of their exceptional quality, longevity, and the flexibility offered by the ability to print on demand.

The result is breathtaking. A Giclée print is quite simply the closest replication of an original Artwork that is currently possible. Giclée (jee-clay) is a French word meaning "to spray or to squirt ink" originated in the 17th century. This method of printing was developed in 1989 as a digital method of fine art printing.

Sometimes referred to as an "Iris Print" (after the original machine that produced the print), it is the latest ground-breaking technological advancement of Fine Art Printing with a resolution higher than traditional 4-color offset or lithography printing, and a wider colour range than a serigraph.

"Why do you often include a high resolution detail on your pages"

Because I need to emphasise that these prints are not run-of-the mill prints produced on a domestic inkjet printer but genuine giclée prints exhibiting no pixellation when the images are enlarged to the sizes offered.

Of necessity, the images on this website are cut down in terms of resolution so that they are easily downloadable but the downside is that the full resolution of the images shown is not optimal - hence the details.
