Giclées are digital prints on either canvas or paper. They afford an artist the ability to
reproduce their original art paintings as high quality original prints.
A giclée art print is exceptional over standard color printing as for posters. Giclée printing is capable of reproducing prints with all the subtlety
of washes, layers and brushstrokes found in the original painting. They also allow an artist to apply touch ups if wanted to any giclée on canvas or
thereby enhancing the print even more closely to the original. This can result in the artist being able to produce more substantial prints that closely
match the original. It is best to purchase a giclée directly from an artist who oversees their production. Most artists are very particular that the
colors in their giclée prints reproduce as closely as possible to the original artwork. You can be assured of getting a high quality giclée print if the
artist is involved in the printing process.
We are all feeling the crunch in this economy. For many, purchasing original art is a luxury they cannot afford right now. But art is a necessity for
feeding our spirits, and inspiring our creativity. Art brings beauty into our homes, lives and souls. Giclées are the next best thing to an
original painting. They are original prints, and their quality is unsurpassed.
The sophisticated digital techniques used to create giclées is able to capture all the fine details found in an original. A giclée art print is a fine
substitute for an original painting, and best of all, it costs much less. They are more expensive than other prints because they require a very high
resolution image for printing, the inks are more exceptional for really great color and the entire process is more sophisticated than standard printing.
