The “Giclée” process is a current state of the art reproduction process and is recognized as perhaps the finest method of accurately reproducing art works of most types.

Giclée quality reproductions are considerably different to conventional lithographic prints. The “Giclée” process is a current state of the art reproduction process and is recognized as perhaps the finest method of accurately reproducing art works of most types.
The Giclée print renders deep saturated colours and has a beautiful painterly quality that retains minute and subtle tints blends and detail. Perfect for pastels, acrylics, oils and watercolours.

The process commences with the original artwork being photographed and digitally scanned on extremely high-resolution cameras, then colour corrected to match the original as closely as possible.

Many artists can not tell the difference between an original and its reproductions. The original file produced can then be printed out on top quality artist’s canvas or watercolour paper. The prints can be of any size and can have an archival life in excess of 100 years. They are highly resistant to fading or discoloration.
