"A giclée is the closest thing a collector can have to an original..." says Jane Karlicek in an article for Digital Fine Art Magazine. This is because the original work of art is scanned directly into a digital computer file. The computer is then able to isolate areas of the image and match colors very precisely. This tedious process insures an excellent likeness. Each approved print is then individually produced on a high resolution ink jet printer. We have used the Roland printer, which has been modified for the precise criteria of fine art production. This distinguishes it from other ink jet printers.

The type of paper and ink used further determine the quality of the finished image. Our museum quality, hand pulled, limited edition giclée prints are created on heavy Concorde Rag paper made of cotton, rather than wood pulp paper used in standard commercial printing. Six color pigment inks are used, instead of the traditional four color dye inks, to insure greater color fidelity and permanence. Both the paper and pigment inks used have been tested by Wilhelm Imaging Research, Inc., and found to be archival for over 120 years, when properly handled.


To preserve your artwork, place your archival giclée prints in acid free framing materials, and display them away from direct sunlight. The temperature in the room should remain fairly constant. Avoid hanging your prints in areas that receive excessive moisture, air pollution, or contact with insects.
