Unless otherwise noted in the detailed description, all prints in our store are produced for us under special arrangement by Image House in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Image House produces high fidelity prints of exceptional quality using the very latest digital printing technology available. Their high-resolution printers use water-based pigment inks to print onto 100% cotton rag acid-free watercolour paper. The final result is an image that is as close to the original as is possible.
Giclee Fine Art Reproduction
Translated from French, the word giclee actually means "a little spray" or "squirt." In the printing industry, however, giclee has become synonymous with a high fidelity printing process. A giclee print begins with a digital file, captured by the best scanning technology available. Once a file has been created, the art is then proofed using the same printer, ink and paper as the final print, ensuring that the proof is a genuine example of the final print and showing any final adjustments that may be required before the printing process begins. The giclee printer itself is a large-format inkjet printer chosen for its exceptional fine dot and consistency, and the factory inks are replaced with inks specifically designed for fine art applications.
The resulting fine art prints boast a long life span when compared to other printing methods (up to 200 years in some tests). Making a giclee print is a carefully calibrated process that requires the utmost attention to detail. Like the images it captures, giclee print is an art form in itself, and the result rivals the best print methods available today.
Any print in the gallery can be sent as a gift. We will include your gift message free of charge in an elegant envelope attached to the package, and the outside of the package will be labeled “This is a gift from [your name].” A single print may be ordered on our website.
