What is a Giclee?
A Giclee (pronounced Zhee-Clay) is
a very high end digitally produced archival quality print. Giclees
are printed on archival substrates, such as Arches Cold Press
watercolor papers, Somerset watercolor papers or specially prepared
canvases, with archival, light fast inks, at a very high resolution.
Depending on the medium of the original work, giclees are printed
on paper or canvas. Watercolor paintings render very well on
the watercolor papers, and oil paintings printed as canvas giclees
have the rich tonal quality of original oil paintings. Canvas
giclees are also coated with a special finishing media to protect
the surface. Canvas giclees are stretched and framed as one would
display an original oil painting. Watercolor giclees are typically
framed behind glass, as one would do with an original watercolor
