What is a Giclee print?

GiCLEE (pronounced djee-clay) is a French word that means to “spray on”. GICLEE PRINT is a term used to describe a special kind of fine art print that involves the use of high quality digital printers that spray fade resistant UV inks on to archival papers.

The prints in this collection are created with an 8-color Epson digital press. The inks are long lasting and fade resistant. The archival paper is German etching paper manufactured by the Hahnemule company.

If protected properly and not placed in direct sunlight, the prints will last for more than 150 years. Galleries and museums throughout the world are now utilizing this extraordinarily high quality process for print reproductions.

We are extremely excited to be able to reproduce Helen Webber’s work with the Giclee method, which affords a wide range of colors as well as a crispness of detail and clarity of image.
