Pronounced Zhee-CLAY, Giclée is a Fine Art Reproduction process using computer controlled, state-of-the-art equipment, which produces highly-detailed, accurate reproductions of artwork using archival-quality, non-fade, pigmented inks that fuse with the paper or canvas surface.
Similar to ink-jet in raw concept, but vastly superior, the specialised reproduction equipment is made to apply computer-controlled, microscopic dots of ink precisely measured at a resolution of nearly 3000 dots per inch.
A limited edition is created when the number of prints reproduced is “limited” to a finite number, by the artist and the publisher to create a rarity for the benefit of the collector. By combining the skill and expertise of craftsmen with the world’s leading printing technology, stunning colour saturation and definition is achieved.
An open edition print is not limited by number , so whilst retaining the high quality production process , it is generally less expensive. You will find these listed down the page under the heading Open Edition Prints , and many of our Glasgow prints are there .
