What is a GICLEE PRINT and why should I get one?

What is a Giclee print?

When the Art World wants to add snob appeal to something, they turn it French - "giclee" (ZHEE-klay) is a French verb meaning "to spray"... like what an inkjet printer does.

But despite the fancy name, giclee really IS an amazing new technology. Giclee prints are superior to traditional four color press reproductions because no screen or other mechanical device is used so there is no breakdown of the image - no visible "dot screen matrix" (those dots Roy Lichtenstein made famous). A Giclee image preserves all the tonalities and hues of the original artwork, no matter how close you get.

[GICLEE PRINTER]

Giclee has revolutionized the poster and print industry, but if you think you can crank one out from your desktop, think again. Giclee printers are larger (and far more expensive) than any desktop printer. They have enormous print beds (the area which is actually able to be printed) and several times the standard jet capacity, and they require special light-fast inks which last 25 years or more. A quality giclee print demands extremely high resolution image files - individual file sizes for quality giclee prints run from 24 to 100 MB and more.

But our 30 day "No Questions Asked" guarantee means you have a full month to live with and enjoy your new artwork, so why worry about all that? If within that time you decide you don't want to keep your artwork, simply return it at no charge and receive a FULL REFUND including shipping costs. So order one of our Giclee prints now and see for yourself what the fuss is about!
