One of the first things people want to know is what is a giclée and how is it pronounced? Giclée (zhee-clay) is a term derived from the French word meaning to “squirt or spray” and has come to mean any high resolution ink-jet print produced from a computer generated file. At CanvasGicléePrinting.com digital images such as photographs are reproduced on canvas or fine art paper resulting in a giclée print. While most people choose canvas giclée prints which are gallery wrapped and ready to hang on the wall, some prefer paper giclées which are suitable for matting and framing.

The CanvasGicléePrinting.com website is easy to use with a pricing calculator which gives customers an immediate cost for a print and a user-friendly art uploader. Just follow the prompts and, if needed, help is just a phone call away at (910) 538-5412. Josh takes a great deal of pride in his attention to detail and excellent customer service.
