Original Giclee Reproductions

What is a Giclée Print?


Giclée printing is currently the highest quality standard for printing single or limited edition prints  on paper or canvas. The term "giclee" (pronounced "ZHE-CLAY") is a French word meaning "to spray". Giclée prints are created by spraying millions of droplets of ink onto your choice of fine art substrates. Unlike lithographs and serigraphs, giclée prints have undergone extensive third party fade testing. While the predicted display life depends on many variables, giclée prints made with wide-gamut pigmented inks are estimated to last over 80 years without noticeable fade.


All  giclee editions produced by Jefferson Archives Publishing, LLC, are created under the watchful eye of the artist. Every image is meticulously matched and balanced for color, contrast and detail, scrutinized to meet the highest standards and the artist’s approval, then signed and numbered by the artist himself and 
 accompanied by a signed and dated Certificate of Authenticity.
