Giclée, pronounced (zhee-clay) is a French term meaning "spray of
ink." Creating a Giclée print requires the utmost care and attention
on the part of the technician. The original painting is photographed
and a digital image is created that a computer reads. The computer
then relays the image to a 6 color, large format printer. The
printer produces the image by delivering a fine spray of ink, up to
a million micro droplets per second. Each droplet is four times
smaller than a human hair. The display of a full color spectrum
allows for the portrayal of the finest detail and vibrancy of the
artist's original image and maximum resolution of color density.
Giclée prints have been shown in museums and galleries throughout
the world. The quality of the materials combined with a state of the
art 6 color printing process will produce a giclée fine art print
that reflects the true essence of the original work of art.
Any Giclée print sold by Solomon Dubnick Gallery has
UV resistant pigmented inks. We generally use 140 lb Arches
watercolor paper with UV coating. Clients can order canvas type
paper upon occasion. The gallery publishes a limited amount of
these prints in editions of 30 or less. An artist may publish a
larger amount but not exceeding more than 300 in an edition.
