Here is some information about the giclee print(s) that will soon be offered here:

What is a "giclee" print?

Giclee (pronounced "zheeclay") is a French word meaning, "to squirt" and that is what the archival, lab-tested inks do when they coat the paper or canvas with pigment. It is a computer generated print that is produced by the spraying of an image on to an archival paper. Men In Tutus are printed using a high-quality Epson 9600 printer which has fine print heads that can spurt jets of ink in minute droplets up to a resolution of 2880 dpi. The canvas that is used is specially prepared to accept this type of printing and is archival quality (i.e., acid-free, so that it will not discolor). As with other fine art printing processes, the artist approves "proofs" of the art print to insure that image is up to the intended quality.

Recent tests show that giclee-quality inkjet prints can have a light-fast life expectancy of 100 to 200 years. When prints are produced on good quality archival canvas the print should possess archival standards of permanence comparable or better than other collectible artwork. The visual quality of the print is extremely high and the color saturation and definition stunning.
