LIMITED EDITION GICLEE PRINTING

WHAT IS A LIMITED EDITION GICLEE PRINT? 

The term Giclee (pronounced zhee-clay) was coined in 1991, to refer to the product of an ink spray (gicler, in French) process. Art Printmaker's were developing the methods for the preparation of high quality reproductions and the use of the word was intended to distinguish fine art prints from other commercial printing processes.

A giclee begins with a high resolution digital file of the artwork. The image can be photographed or scanned directly.  It can also be scanned from a high resolution photograph. The image is then adjusted, using computer software, to insure that the color balance and tonality closely match the original. The giclee is prepared directly from the digital file.

Not all digital prints are Giclees.  Only digital prints that are created using special high-resolution printers, archival inks which meet strict printmaking standards can be truly marketed as Giclee prints.  These fine art reproductions are laboratory rated to provide several decades, if not a century or more, of lasting print quality.

All of the Barbara's images are available as Giclee Prints. Her images are most often printed by Golem Art Biz Prints. Barbara's giclees meet all the standards to be considered fine art. Golem Art Biz  L.E. Giclee prints are guaranteed to last approximately 100 years.

Golem Art Biz  giclees are printed on Epson Watercolor Paper, 190 gsm, Hahnemuhle Photo Rag, 308 gsm, Hahnemuhle German Etching, 310 gsm papers and Hahnemuhle 100% cotton Fine Art Canvas 410 gsm.  The giclee printer is the Canon Pixma Pro-100 printer using dye inks.
