What is a Giclée Print?

Giclée printing is a process that uses fade-resistant, archival inks and archival substrates to print on large format printers. Giclée printing is often used by artists to make reproductions of their original two-dimensional artwork for resale while preserving the original. Giclees are more expensive to reproduce than prints made using traditional lithography and they are priced accordingly. Giclees are almost indistinguishable from originals. A Giclee print has a life span of 108 years or more without fading if properly cared for by the owner.
