What are Giclee Prints?

The giclée (pronounced ‘zhee-clay’) printmaking process has been in existence for around 25 years and was originally developed in America.

The word ‘giclée’ describes ‘the spraying of paint’ involved
in plate-less printing to create fine art prints. Employing up to an 11-colour process this state-of-the-art technology can produce consistent and affordable prints of the highest quality.

A giclée print is simply the closest duplication of an original artwork that is technically possible.

Heidi Lee has her art printed on the finest selection of paper available. They are archival quality and are designed and manufactured to last a lifetime. They’re of the highest archival quality and standards.

Being acid free, they have been specially developed to have very wide colour rendition (colour gamut), display very deep blacks (Dmax), and minimize dot gain (high image detail and sharpness). The paper used has been developed to meet galleries and museum’s longevity

– light stability on display
– stability in dark storage
– resistance to atmospheric ozone
– resistance to high-humidity environments
– water resistance.
