PROCESS

8x10 Delivers Fine Art Giclée Prints. French for “sprayed ink,” giclee is a sophisticated printmaking process. Giclée prints are often made from photographic images of fine art paintings, typically on inkjet canvas or fine art paper, to produce high-quality, permanent fine art reproductions. The extra-fine image resolution achieved in this inkjet printing process retains a high degree of fine detail from the original fine art image, rendering deeply saturated colors with broad ranges of tonal values.
