Certificate of Authenticity
All Giclee Prints come with a Certificate of Authenticity. All Giclee Prints
were produced on acid free, 100% cotton, 300 gram per square meter, fine art
rag paper, using archival pigment based ink technology.
In independent testing by Wilheim Imaging Research, the leading authority on
print permanence, this paper-ink combination has been rated to last 100+ years
under glass, 55+ years unprotected before noticeable fading occurs.
The word Giclee (jhee-clay) is derived from the French word gicler
which means "spraying" or "spurting," indicating a technique which uses
non-interrupted fine streams of ink to get ink colors onto the substrate.
The term "Giclee Print" connotes an elevation in print making technology.
Images are generated from high resolution digital scans and printed with
archival quality inks onto various substrates.
The Giclee Printing process provides higher resolution and better color
accuracy than other printing techniques. The Giclee Print virtually captures
every nuance of an original painting.
The quality of the Giclee Print rivals traditional silver-halipe and gelatin
printing processes and is commonly found in museums, art galleries and
