Giclée Information

Giclée, (pronounced gee-clay) meaning “to spray”, is a term used for very high quality inkjet printing. Perfected by the French several years ago, it uses a high-resolution digital printer that can reproduce artwork on canvas as well as on museum grade art reproduction paper. Properly done it is difficult to tell the difference between the copy and the original.

Giclée is the closest duplication of an original artwork that is humanly, mechanically and technically possible.

Original paintings by Anne Yang are scanned to capture full detail at 100% size thereby achieving a highly detailed image. They are then printed on 308gsm acid free Rag art reproduction paper, or quality canvas using UV resistant pigment inks and employing Giclée printing techniques. Images printed using these materials are said to retain their original vibrancy for over 100 years.
