What is a Fine Art Giclee?

A giclee (pronounced zhee-CLAY, a French term meaning "spray of ink") is a high-resolution, high-quality reproduction individually printed on a special large format printer. These beautiful digital reproductions are virtually unparalleled in quality and range of color, and are at the leading edge of fine art printmaking.

Global Gallery is proud to offer thousands of titles in our beautiful fine art giclee format. These affordable digital reproductions are the highest quality art prints available on the market. Here you can learn everything about our line of products, from how they are produced to substrate details.

Benefits of a Giclee

Color
Giclees not only incorporate more ink colors than traditional lithography, but they have such high resolution and color range that there are no dots comprising a giclee print. Rather, it is a continuous smooth tone of rich vibrant color.

Quality
Each of our fine art giclee prints are digitally prepared for the printer and then meticulously scrutinized by our team of printmakers to ensure quality and color correctness. Giclee printing is widely recognized as being the highest quality of all existing fine art printing methods.

Our Products

Paper Giclee
We use a matte finish acid-free archival fine art paper for all of our paper giclee prints. Our philosophy is that the quality of the paper is reflected in the quality of the print, which is why we will only use the highest quality paper media available.

Canvas Giclee
Our canvas giclees begin in print production where our talented team prints the image directly onto artist-grade canvas using archival inks for color permanence. After printing, our canvas product is then followed by our unique coating process wherein we seal the ink into the canvas by adding a clear protective barrier. This detailed process preserves and protects the image.

After the canvas is prepared, your piece enters our finished production studio where the canvas is then stretched and fit onto a custom-cut wooden frame. Hanging hardware is also installed at this stage, making your canvas art piece immediately ready to hang out of the box.
