About Giclées

To make a giclée from one of Valorie's paintings, a high resolution digital scan of the painting is printed with archival quality inks onto paper or canvas. The giclée process provides better colour accuracy than other means of reproduction. Giclées also guarantee fade and colour shift resistance for at least 100 years under average indoor light conditions. Under ideal museum or gallery conditions the print life exceeds 120 years. Another advantage is that paintings can be reproduced to almost any size, enabling Valorie to customize art work for her clients.

Giclées can be framed in various styles, and can also be purchased unframed. The price of giclées varies according to size and framing options, and starts as low as $150 Cdn.

Although the giclée process is more expensive than some others, Valorie chose it for its superior colour quality, fade resistance and the ability to produce individual, custom-sized images.
