Giclée Print

The word "Giclée" comes from the French verb "gicler," which translates to "spray" in English. In this process, "InkJet" machines are used to apply "water-based" inks with mineral pigments encapsulated in resin, considered as "museum-quality inks" and environmentally friendly.

The Giclée printing technique involves spreading microscopic ink particles on various surfaces previously prepared for this purpose, resulting in a high-quality reproduction. Print resolutions typically range from 1,440 to 1,880 dots per inch, ensuring precise details and vivid colors.

The result of a well-executed Giclée print offers the highest level of printing quality today, making it the ideal method for obtaining reproductions of "digital prints" considered as "original graphic works."

When conservation materials (inks and supports) are used, the Wilhelm Institute Research certifies that the durability of these printed products maintained in home environment conditions can reach 75 years for color prints and 200 years for black and white prints.

To maintain the quality and durability of a Giclée print, it is recommended to frame it to protect it from dust and potential splashes. Additionally, the print should be placed in a location where it does not receive direct sunlight. If you need to clean a framed print with glass, place the frame horizontally with the glass facing up. Then, remove dust from the glass surface with a soft duster or a lint-free cloth to prevent scratching. Dampen a soft, lint-free cloth in a cleaning solution (such as warm water with a few drops of soap) and gently wipe it over the glass surface. It is not necessary to soak the glass with the cleaning solution. Finally, dry the glass with a soft, lint-free cloth to avoid leaving watermarks.
