Older works of art and photographs frequently deteriorate over time. Light, humidity, and airborne pollutants all contribute to this deterioration. Often it is cost prohibitive to have a paper conservator restore an original historic document, painting or picture. Digital restoration is a low cost alternative to having the original restored. If you have an old painting, historic document, or aging photograph that is in fragile or damaged condition and you can’t afford hundreds or even thousands to fix the original this is your answer.

A Giclee (pronounced ge-KLAY) print is a fine art print made with a high-end inkjet printer. When making a Giclee the artwork is captured, proofed and printed digitally. Prints are reproduced using precisely calibrated printers and archival inks. Giclee prints are quickly being recognized by the world’s leading galleries and museums as the finest reproductions available to date.
