What is a Giclée?


The Giclée printing process is born from a blend of the small scale printing techniques used by skilled craftsmen with the most advenced technologies in artwork reproduction.  It allows artists and art distributors to offer prints of a quality ever since sought after, in limited editions, on the best papers of an unmatched visual definition and without a visible thread at the naked eye.

Each print is produced one at the time:  An hour is required to print a sheet.  Already a few years old, the term Giclée refers to a spray of microscopic droplets (more than four millions per second) on paper or on a different type of support (canvas).  Each piece demands an extended preparation work to obtain a perfect result.

A worldwide recongnised and accepted process:  Giclée prints already take place in numerous internationally well-known galleries and many museums, such as:  Le Louvre in Paris, the British Museum in London and the Metropolitain in New York.

The exceptional quality of this process already makes it standard of the next millennium and leaves far behind the limited capacities of photolithography and serigraphy.
