Giclée, Fine Art Printing, Art Reproduction, and Photo Printing

What is Giclée?

This term has been used loosely to mean any fine-art printing, usually archival, printed by inkjet.

To us, it means using the highest quality method of inkjet printing with pigment inks on archival media to produce stunning results.
