Giclée? /ʒiːˈkleɪ/ (zhee-klay)
This is a French term to describe a high-quality print made with tiny amounts pigment ink on long-lasting fine art quality paper. The pigment in the ink helps keep colours lightfast as long as the print is not placed in direct sunlight. The paper mill we use is a few hundred years old and knows a thing or two about making paper last the test of time.
