What are giclée fine art prints?
Giclée (pronounced “zhee-clay”) is a term coined in the early 1990’s to describe a new process for producing extremely high quality fine art prints. The term giclée is derived from the French word “gicler” meaning “to squirt, spurt or spray” and relates to the ink jet print head technology used. Giclée fine art prints are the next generation of print making technology and give beautiful digital reproductions with all the colour depth and tonality of the original oil painting.
Why does Art in Bloom use giclée fine art prints?
Giclée fine art prints have a quality and archival life that is significantly greater than traditional silkscreen or litho prints.
At Art in Bloom we use the latest image capture technology to digitize our oil paintings and colour match the images. These digital files are then printed using archival quality pigmented inks onto the very finest quality Somerset Enhanced Velvet archival grade fine art paper. This ensures you get beautiful quality giclée fine art prints that last and last.
