What is a Giclée Print?

Since the 1980's it has been used loosely to mean any fine-art printing, usually archival, printed by Giclée inkjet printers. It is often used by artists, galleries, and print shops to attempt high quality printing.

Treez Studio takes great pride in producing high quality prints from a reputable Giclée printing company. The Inkjet process prints from a digitized image derived from the original artwork. Mild modifications are made to maintain the colour quality, to ensure it is as close to the original as possible. The Artist inspects and approves every print before it is shipped.

Upon purchase, how is the artwork reproduction (or original) shipped?

All prints sold outside of Treez Studio jurisdiction, will be mailed or shipped in a cardboard tube (Shipping cost is an additional charge). Once your print arrives rolled in a tube, then you may reach out and provide us the opportunity to work with you on custom framing and matting (contact us via our website or social media with any questions you may have)

What do I do with my Giclee print once it arrives at my doorstep?

You will receive a letter of appreciation that will provide suggestions for storage, displaying and archival preservation. We suggest you either get the print 'drymounted' from a reputable framer (lowest cost) or professional custom framing is highly suggested. Once framed, make sure your display is away from directional sunlight (causality of sunlight on the print over a period of time, may result in some fading).

What sizes are available?

Most reproductions (and original artwork) from Treez Studio do not meet the 'normal' standard commercial sizes. We recommend you avoid using standard commercialized framing to preserve the print. The quality of custom framing greatly adds to the value and overall appearance of the print. Your investment and appreciation of art adds value to your purchase. Maintenance of each piece is highly recommended.

What kind of paper/canvas is used?

The highest quality paper/canvas along with the inks are used to reproduce a print from the original artwork. The manufacture of these materials guarantees a 30 year archival warranty for its material and inks.

Glossary of Words

Giclée prints

Giclée printing (pronounced zhee-clay) is a method of printing to create high quality prints. Originating from the French term, “la giclée,” it means, “that which is sprayed or squirted”. Giclée printing began in the 1980s, when high-resolution digital scans were used in conjunction with archival quality inks. A wide variety of materials can be used to print on such as: glass, metal, wood, etc. Paper and canvas are the most popular materials used to reproduce artwork.

Drymounted Services

Dry Mounting is the process used to glue or adhere artwork (often posters or paper products) to a backing board, usually for display purposes. In general, mounting is the method used for holding your artwork in place within a frame. Over time, humidity changes and shifting can cause buckling on the print . Dry Mounting is a great way to prevent this. Most reputable picture framing businesses offer this service. The cost is cheaper than complete framing, but lacks preservation and may devalue over time.


Your rolled Canvas print or original, will require re-stretching on a wood frame before finished framing begins. Consult your local professional picture framer for the best approach and decor.

Quality Framing

The artist personally frames all original and reproduction artwork using the highest quality of products and services possible to enhance the preservation and display qualities.
