Giclée is a term coined by Jack Guganne in 1991 for fine art prints made on very high end inkjet printers. Our prints conform to the standards of the GPA (Giclee Printers Association) due to the inks, paper, and resolution used to create our prints.
We use an Epson Gicleé machine with Ultrachrome K3 Inks, Epson Cold Press Natural textured watercolor paper, and print at 2,880 dots per inch (dpi). Most color images in books are printed at 300 dpi, so our prints are about 10X better resolution.
Our prints are hand-signed and numbered. They are made in Limited Editions of 250 of each size. The number shows which print of 250 you have, so if yours is 16/250 you have number 16 of the 250 total prints. Once those 250 prints have been sold, no more prints are available, this makes them more valuable. Time for Nick to make a new painting!
