What is a giclée?
January 4, 2013
giclée (zhee-clay) n. 1. a type of digital fine-art print. 2. Most often associated with reproductions; a giclée is a multiple print or exact copy of an original work of art that was created by conventional means (painting, drawing, etc.) and then reproduced digitally, typically via inkjet printing. First use in this context by Jack Duganne in 1991, Los Angeles, California.
Some may like to argue the true meaning of giclée, I totally get why. The World has changed since digital photography. We have so many more capabilities to get jobs done. Giclée used to all be done with an Iris printer. But now more people use ink jets (not all ink jest are made the same) People have adopted or adapted the word “giclée” to mean an art reproduction
If you have water colors or oil painting we can photograph or scan and make beautiful prints ready for resale using smooth fine art , textured, luster, or canvas. We can help decide what will work best for your project.

Hi I would like to see some of the work you have done.
I have had Iris prints made from Hunter Editions and then
other giclees from around the neighborhood in Portsmouth.
Where are you located?

Cindy, I’m sorry I didn’t see this sooner. we get so much spam I can’t tell which users are real…. If you are still looking for a printer please e-mail me so we can talk directly. I’m located in downtown near Ceres Bakery if that means anything. Not far from the post office.
