On the Walls: Giclee

Everyone wants gallery style art but sometimes delays finishing their space because of the gallery art prices. If you have been looking for wall decor for your home or office, giclee [pronounced: zhee-KLAY] might be a great solution.


Giclee is an image that has been digitally reproduced onto a material such canvas, metal,  or wood resulting in a museum quality fine art reproduction. Good giclees are then gone over by hand to bring out the intricacies and texture in the art. Giclees are available in any subject matter including abstract, landscape, still lifes and more. The image retains all the tonalities and hues of the original painting.

Giclee printers are not your average ink-jet printer. They are a large-format, high-resolution industrial prepress proofing ink-jet printer that has been adapted for fine-art printing. Giclee’s also require large scanners and special light-fast inks, which, if kept out of the sun, will remain true for up to 25 years.

Our designers and customers love the many options giclees. When you come into James Craig Furnishing‘s showroom, we give you access to thousands of digital images through our relationship with art houses like Pheonix Art Group for you to chose from. You can choose the art, size, frame and material.  We take care of the rest.
