About Giclée reproductions: 

A giclée is a high fidelity printing process that boasts a long life-span when compared to other printing methods.

Technically-speaking, a giclée printer is a top quality inkjet printer capable of printing a high resolution image onto fine art materials, in this case, on archival watercolour paper.

To preserve the quality for as long as possible, the latest techniques and technology must be used when making a giclée. Although there is still some debate as to how long a giclee print will last, the latest test methods estimate they will likely have a lifespan that ranges anywhere from 50 to 200 years. Traditional printing methods have considerably shorter lifespans.
