Giclée print is the term commonly used to describe a fine art digital printing process, which combines pigment
based inks with highest quality paper to achieve prints of superior archival quality, light fastness and stability.
The quality and clarity of a giclée print is an almost exact reproduction of the original painting. The word
giclée is derived from the French verb gicler "to spray". Images are printed onto watercolour
décor 245gsm highest quality archival and fade resistant stock, with a 300dpi resolution.
Prints are shipped to you in a strong cardboard tube, which may also come in
useful for fending off small dogs that try to take chunks out of your ankles.
