What is a Giclée?
A giclée (zhee-CLAY) is an individually produced, high-resolution,
high- fidelity reproduction done on a special large format printer.
Giclée, a French term meaning "spraying of ink" is produced from
digital scans of the originalartwork. A fine stream of ink, more than
four million droplets per second, is sprayed onto a specially treated
canvas.

Caring For Your Giclée Reproduction
Your fine art giclée reproduction is beautiful and delicate and should be handled with the same extreme
care that you would give an original painting.
The giclée has been produced using superior printing technologies and premium quality materials. Treat
this investment as you would any piece of fine art. To ensure that your giclée maintains its presentation
quality for years of enjoyment, please adhere to the following recommendations when handling and
displaying:

•        When transporting or storing, keep flat and protected to avoid damage.
•        Canvas giclée may be gently dusted using a soft, clean dry cloth.
•        Do not apply any additional coatings

Reproductions on canvas require special attention. Because canvas weave is extremely hydrophilic
(readily accepts and gives off moisture to the surrounding atmosphere), room climate should be controlled
to avoid excessive stretching or shrinkage. A consistent environment with temperatures within the 60 to 85
degrees F range and relative humidity of 30 – 55% is recommended.

•        Use a professional framer who has experience stretching and framing giclée canvases.
•        Do not spray the back of the canvas with water or any other liquids. (Rapid shrinkage as it
dries will promote cracking of the surface.)
•        Avoid rapid fluctuations of environment and exposure to direct sunlight.
