Information about giclée printing:
A giclee (pronounced "zheeclay") is a French word meaning, "fine spray". It is produced by the spraying of an image on to fine art paper. Caleb's giclees begin by making a high quality scan of the original artwork, then printing them using a high quality Epson printer. The inks used are specially formulated so that the fine print heads can spurt jets of ink in minute droplets at a resolution of 1440 dpi. The archival paper used is specially prepared to accept this type of printing. As with other fine art printing processes, the artist approves "proofs" of the art print to insure that the right tone, depth and color is produced.
Recent tests show that giclee-quality inkjet prints can have a light- fast life expectancy of 100 to 200 years. When prints are produced on good quality paper, the print should possess archival standards of permanence comparable or better than other collectible artwork. The visual quality and color saturation of the print is extremely high.
