Giclée prints allow you to bring celebrated artworks and portraits home. What makes a giclée print is the combination of high resolution, paper choice, pigment-based inks, and an inkjet printer.
Giclée is a French term meaning “to spray,” referring to the process that an inkjet printer uses to reproduce fine art or photography to create individual copies of the original piece. 65% of galleries now sell giclée prints. With giclée printing you can expect a higher quality product that lasts longer than your run-of-the-mill inkjet prints.

For a true giclée of high quality, the resolution should be at least 300 dots per inch (DPI). To achieve this, when reproducing a photo or conventional artwork, the camera or scanner used to capture the image or scan the artwork must be capable of 300 DPI or higher. This ensures that the final print has the sharpest detail and is free of fragmentation that can occur with lower resolution images. With proper care from the owner, a giclée print can last up to 100 years or more without significant fading. For best results, it’s recommended to frame the print with UV protective glass and avoid hanging it in direct sunlight to maximize its lifespan.
Ink & Printer
Not all inkjet prints are giclée prints as giclée printing uses pigment-based inks rather than dye-based inks. Pigment-based inks have a lifespan of 100-200 years without significant fading. Giclée prints are produced using large format printers that hold 8-12 color ink cartridges. The wider the color gamut that the printer can achieve, the more colors of ink it can accommodate. JGX Group uses high-quality printers for giclée printing with 12 color ink cartridges that can print up to 44″ media on rolls.

I'm a designer with J Howell Construction in Highland Village, TX and we recently ordered some signage from JGX Group & I can not say enough about them. The collaboration process was so smooth, they presented ideas & were incredibly open to going off what I designed. Their customer service was amazing & there was such an ease working with them that we have decided to definitely to order from & work with them again. Thank you JGX Group for such a wonderful experience. And if you haven't checked out showroom in the Design District you have got to!
The JGX team helped us with our design plans from start to finish, including detailed renderings for us to review. They also made the installation process quick and painless.
Beyond impressed with my JGX experience. I approached them with a project that had a tight deadline and they not only came through early, but also completed the job beautifully and beyond expectations.
Wonderful experience with Scott, Nancy, and Ryan at JGX Group. They were very caring in making sure I got exactly what I wanted for my company. The project turned out great, and I am using them again now for another project. Thank you for your quick and friendly replies, and fast turn around time.
We loved working with Scott at JGX Group for our exterior sign on our building! It helps increase marketing reach and gives us a home more than we have in just our building! Thanks!!
We just opened up our second location of Class Studios this past weekend and we could not have done it without JGX. We've worked with them for years, on our first location and now second, thankful for their precision and attention to detail, as well as their incredible customer service. Scott, Mark, and the entire team were a joy to work with. Thank you for making our studio look so amazing.
Great company, everything from standard signage to custom jobs. Everything in house from production to install. Checked out some of their work at 4510 & Nieman Marcus and the creative team will definitely make your space or promotional collateral fantastic on any level!!
Scott and his team were fantastic. Great advice and design, professional installers, we could not be happier.
