What’s a Giclée?
Giclée (pronounced “zhee-clay”) is simply an archival fine art reproduction. The printing process is unique in that it requires both archival inks and papers to be considered a giclée print.
The printing process uses these inks via an inkjet printer to print onto a substrate, usually paper or canvas. Our aqueous inks are pigment-based, which translates to a longer-lasting and fade-resistant color. SFC Gallery's selection of fine art papers and canvas are also archival to preserve the integrity of your work. We use a professional photo & fine art printer to make sure all materials work harmoniously to create your giclée.
First, we need a digital file of your artwork that you want to reproduce. We scan or photograph your original art or you can provide us with an image. (Note: Scanning & photography charges apply). From there, we provide the option for proofing your work so that you know that the colors, tones, and clarity of the image is to your liking. Once the proof is approved, we are ready to print your giclées!
Let us be your trusted source for archival fine art giclée printing.
Large Format Printing
Need make a statement? Our printer is capable of printing up to 44” on the narrowest dimension. That means we can print up to 40” x 60” with ease!
Along with full size reproductions, we can turn your artwork into giclée note cards (available in 4¼ x 5½ or 5 x 7 sizes). Our 5 x 7 gicleé note cards are popular with artists working with all media, and make a great way to share your artwork inexpensively.
Some things to keep in mind
This service is primarily for artists but is great for family portraits and vacation photos. Please note that we are not allowed to reproduce work from another artist/photographer unless you have been specifically granted permission from the artist.
Additional fees may apply after the initial proof.
If you already have a digital file of your work, ready for printing, the scanning/photography charge will be waived.
A good rule for printing is to not enlarge your print any larger than the original size. Increasing overall proportions results in pixelization and a poor image.
When making printing a size that differs from the original work's dimension, please keep in mind we assume to keep the proportions of the original size. If you choose to have your work cropped for printing, please bring that request to our attention.
