What is a Certified Art Giclée™ ?
The reproductions of the drawings are giclées.
A giclée is a printing technique with an advanced inkjet printer. This technique is nowadays widely used to make reproductions of artworks. The term giclée comes from the French language and means blastingor misting. The best quality is obtained by high-quality paper, high-quality pigmented inks and the piezo printing technology, so that the ink can be dosed very accurately. The pigmented inks retain their color fastness for up to 100 years or more according to the latest studies.
