The newest ink-jet printing technology allows high quality Giclée prints to be made on archival quality canvas with long-lasting inks.
The best of these Giclée prints adhere closely to the original art, with rich tones and fine detail. If done by an expert printmaker with the artist’s supervision (to make certain the print is an accurate reflection of the original), a fine art reproduction is the result. Most artists choose to limit the edition in order to increase the value of each one. Thus, the purchase of a limited edition quality Giclée print can be considered a purchase of fine art. Mass-produced, low quality, cheap reproductions are not “giclees”.
