Giclee Printing

Giclée (pronounced Gee’clay) is derived from the French term meaning to spray or squirt, which is an apt description of how an inkjet printer works. The advantage of this process is that in giclée pigment printing, no screen or other mechanical devices are used and therefore there is no discernible dot screen pattern. In addition, the color and clarity goes beyond the traditional photographic process. We use Epson® UltraChrome K3™ Ink Technology. Because our Epson Professional Photo printer uses 8 inks, not the standard 4 or 5 inks, the color gamut reflects a wide spectrum of magnificence and will render subtle gradations that may be out of range with other technologies. The results are radiant and distinct. Nearly all paper made prior to the 1850’s was acid-free, and survives quite well for centuries. Nearly all paper made from the 1940's through the 1980's is highly acidic and yellows quickly and will continue to fade. Most of our cherished family photographs fall within this timeframe. Do you want your prints to be preserved through a process that will please and satisfy your family for 100s of years? Do you think that your photos deserve the highest image reproduction quality possible? If so, giclée pigment printing is for you. We adhere to the same standards of museum quality printing and will achieve longlasting results for your treasured heirlooms. Your images will last for several generations when matted and framed archivally or stored in an acid or lignin free album.
