Giclée printmaking offers the highest degree of accuracy and richness of color available in any image reproduction technique.

Art Museums host Giclée print exhibits
Prominent art museums such as the MOMA, Guggenheim, Smithsonian, Los Angeles Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York have hosted many exhibitions featuring Giclée prints.

The technology behind Giclée print reproduction
The most current print reproduction technology (called Variable Size, Micro-Piezo, Drop-on-Demand) utilizes up to twelve print heads incorporating 360 nozzles each to spray fine droplets of ink, 3 picoliter in size, which are controlled with microscopic precision to combine them at each pixel location.

A print consists of millions of ink droplets and many thousands of colors. This unique capability produces a visibly continuous tone image with smooth gradations between tones and a finely differentiated color palette.

Faithful reproduction
Giclée printing provides luminosity and chroma brilliance that reproduces the artist's original work better than any other technique. This technology, when combined with the finest quality papers, canvases and inks, enables the Giclée print to rival the original art.

The quality of a fine Giclée print, achieved by an artist working with a skilled repro professional, is far superior to that of a lithograph, laser, or any other type of inkjet print.

Museum quality Giclée print will last for generations
Only the Giclée print will have the appearance and longevity suitable for framing. The combination of sophisticated printmaking techniques and superior materials provide a museum quality, limited edition print which will last for generations.
