Giclee: pronounced gi-cle’e
The quality of a giclee print is far superior to all other forms of printing. It is the closest an artist can get to matching the original. Signed, numbered, limited edition Giclee prints are more expensive to reproduce than bulk. The artist will sign and number in pencil, because a pencil mark cannot be reproduced by computers, therefore making it less vulnerable to fraud. This print will resist fading and discoloration in excess of sixty years before any noticeable shift in color integrity occurs, in other words they are museum quality prints. The paper quality is composed of one-hundred percent cotton fibre, acid and lignin free, and milled in Italy. As with all art, do not display in direct sunlight or humidity. Glass should be used when framing.
