Giclee Art Reproduction: A Giclee (pronounced zhe-clay) refers to both a category of collectible fine art similar to lithographs and serigraphs, as well as, a type of digitally created fine art print. Not any digital print is a Giclee however, only digital prints that are created on special high resolution printers utilizing archival inks. Giclees are laboratory rated to provide several decades, if not a century or more of lasting print quality. The archival inks and papers selected by L. Galen Larson are rated up to 80 years. (It must be noted that they have not been in existence long enough to confirm the accuracy of this rating).
It is recommended that the print not be placed in either direct sunlight or in a room that has large windows and southern exposure. For best results, frame with archival glass.
