About Ilene Reed Reproductions
These prints are reproductions of an Ilene Reed original piece and represent a more affordable way for you to enjoy her images in your home or office.
A giclée is a print that results from a digital printing process. Limited edition (150) reproductions of Ilene's original oil paintings are created through a process called giclée (gee clay) printing. The word is taken from the French, meaning "to spray." In this process, after an image is scanned to a digital format, it is printed on a high-quality wide-format ink-jet printer and are coated with a clear acrylic topcoat that protects them from the elements and is abrasion resistant. The commercial ink-jet printer should not to be confused with the desktop printers found in most home offices today. In this case, millions of droplets are sprayed each second directly onto the print surface (canvas), resulting in a smooth and consistent image, which is almost as vibrant as the original piece. Each giclée in the edition is created one at a time, unlike mass-production printing methods that use offset presses. Because they are made one at a time, editions are produced in very small quantities and each giclée has its own unique characteristics. Due to the nature of the materials used, no two giclées in an edition are exactly alike. Great care is taken to ensure a quality personalized giclée.
All artwork should be placed out of direct sunlight. Giclée canvas prints do not need to be framed behind glass, as they have received a protective coating. With proper care, your Giclée print will continue to bring you enjoyment for many decades.
