About The Giclee Process:
Fine art reproduction has been revolutionized with the Giclee printing process. From the French verb "to spray", the word Giclee (zhee-clay) is used to describe the digital fine art printmaking process and reproduction of original artwork. Images are generated from high resolution digital scans and printed with archival quality inks onto canvas and fine art paper. Paper or canvas is individually mounted onto a drum which rotates during printing. Since no screens are used in Giclee printing, the prints have a higher resolution than lithographs and the dynamic color range is greater than serigraphy. Image permanence is a concern to artists and collectors and the Giclee process gives fade & color shift resistance of better than 125 years. Since the digital image includes every subtlety and nuance of the original - including the smallest details of light and shadow - the fine art giclee is often indistinguishable from the original work of art.
Giclee prints are priced midway between original art and limited edition lithographs and rarely exceed 50-400 reproductions. KCG limited edition giclees are hand-painted, hand-signed and numbered by the artist to identify each work of art as a part of the total edition.
