Giclée prints are produced hand on an Epson 8 colour printer using archival inks on acid free fine art paper. Epson guarantee that the inks will be unaffected by light for at least 75 years.

A giclée print is a piece of printed artwork or photograph produced by using a high quality digital inkjet printer.
The inks used are specially formulated and compatible with the extreme fineness of the printer head that directs minute droplets of ink at a resolution of 1440 dots per (linear) inch or more.
The paper or canvas is specially prepared to accept this type of printing mechanism and ink set. The printing media must be manufactured to fine art standards and acid free to ensure longevity.
The visual quality of giclée prints is extremely high. Continuous tones are printed without apparent dots, lines or barring. Colour saturation and definition can be stunning.
