At Vision Artworks the open and limited edition giclee' prints are produced on high quality archival papers in conjunction with thermal dye-based inks that yield images that resist fading longer than traditionally processed photos. The works are of museum quality and under ideal conditions can avoid image degradation in excess of 80 years.

Giclée (pronounced "zhee-clay"), is an invented name for the process of making fine art prints from a digital source using ink-jet printing. The term is often used instead of inkjet in art shops. The word "giclée", from the French language word "le gicleur" meaning "nozzle", or more specifically "gicler" meaning "to squirt, spurt, or spray". It was coined by Jack Duganne, a printmaker working in the field, to represent any inkjet based digital print used as fine art. The intent of that name was to distinguish commonly known industrial "Iris proofs" from the type of fine art prints artists were producing on those same types of printers. The name was originally applied to fine art prints created on Iris printers in a process invented in the early 1990s but has since come to mean any high quality ink-jet print.

The prints can range in size from as small as 4" x 6" to 24" x 36" and the price can range from $10 to several hundred dollars. Lastly, Vision Artworks can do custom Giclee' prints of your artwork or photographs. For information please call us at 905-768-9383 or email us.
