Giclée

 

A Giclée (zhee-CLAY) is a high-resolution reproduction done on a special large format printer. Giclée prints are produced from large file size, digital scans of original artwork.

Giclée prints are coveted by collectors for their fidelity and quality, and desired by galleries and artists alike because they so accurately reproduce the original art. The reproductions are virtually indistinguishable from the original.

Giclée are superior to traditional lithography in every way. The colors are brighter; 200 year archival pigment produces high-resolution, authentic representation of the original work and provides heirloom longevity. The range of color for Giclée is far beyond that of lithography, and the details are crisper.

Since Giclée printers use media in rolls, large print sizes are available, limited only by the length and width of the roll. This is an important asset given the large scale of many of the Armstrong’s works.

Giclée can be printed on various media, from canvas to fine art paper, even vinyl and transparent acetates. In addition Giclée reproduction can be sized to accommodate individual decorating desires or restrictions.

Most of Duane and Annie’s works are available in limited edition sized sets using the Giclée method of fine art reproduction. Contact us for availability.
