Giclée (pronounced 'jee-clay') derives from the french words gicleur (nozzle) and spray (gicler). Directly translated, giclée means "spraying nozzle", which describes how most digital printers direct ink onto various materials. Our giclées are printed on Concord Fine Art Rag paper made from 100% cotton. Print permanence testing measured at 450 lux and simulating ideal museum and gallery conditions, concluded that the print life on this paper should exceed 120 years. The ink is pigmented, making our prints water-resistant and archival.
