What is a Giclée

Giclée  (zhee-klay) - The French word "giclée" is a feminine noun that means a spray or a spurt of liquid. The word may have been derived from the French verb "gicler" meaning "to squirt".

Giclée is a sophisticated printmaking process that produces high quality ink-jet prints.  The technology has improved greatly and the machines capable of producing these high quality works include inkjet printers produced by Epson, Canon, HP, and others. They use special light-fast inks, which, if kept out of the sun, will remain true for up to 75 years.

With my goal being to offer the highest quality product, all of my impressions are printed on an extra heavy 100% cotton rag paper (Hahnemühle Museum Etching 350 gsm). Printers used are the Epson Stylus® Pro 4880 and 9880 using Epson UltraChrome K3 Inks.
