Giclée Reproductions

state - of - your - art - solution

Reproductions known as Giclée (meaning 'to spray', and pronounced Zhee-clay) were originally developed in 1989. This is a plate-less method of fine art printing. Images are scanned and digitally stored in a computer. Each image is then sent individually to a high-resolution printer.

Giclée reproductions are cost effective. This method allows you to purchase prints without a large upfront fee as with traditional lithography. Mass production of the image is not necessary as with lithography, one print at a time can be ordered in Giclée reproductions. The resolution (dpi or dots per inch) provide incredible detail and the colors results are brilliant. The dpi of 1800 are actually higher than traditional lithography, which has a dpi of 300. This higher dpi allows the colors to be crisp and rich.

The benefits of Giclée reproductions are numerous. The initial investment is minimal. Giclée prints offer richness, detail and depth that will set them apart from traditional offset lithography.

Many well-known artists, such as Robert Bateman, Andrew and Jamie Wyeth, Robert Rauschenburg and David Hockney are having Giclée reproductions. Many art museums are including Giclée reproductions. After extensive testing, and with Lyson prototype ink, your Giclée reproduction should last about 75 years before the color fading would be noticeable.
