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.

L.E. Giclee prints meet all the standards to be considered fine art and are guaranteed to last approximately 100 years.

L.E. Giclee are printed on Epson Watercolor Paper, 190 gsm or Epson Canvas Paper. The giclee printer is a Canon Pixma Pro-100 printer using Dye inks.
