- The high end of inkjet printing is the giclée print … . The name is derived from the French verb “gicler” meaning to squirt, or more accurately in this case, an extremely fine spray of many different sized droplets. This application of overlapping dots of ink mixes, forming additional color combinations. The application of the inks in this printing process is so fine that there are no discernible dots or droplets on the final print.

What separates our's from the others?
Each and every giclée that we produce is professionally enhanced by hand. We use the same brand and quality of mediums that Lisa's originals are created with to do the enhancement.
Besides the inherent difference in quality from a standard lithographic print to a giclée, our giclées are framed using what is called a float frame. The name float frame, is given because they make the piece appear to be floating on the wall. This is done by attaching the frame to back of the aluminum sheet that the art is printed on.
