Ketubah giclée prints

Giclee (zhee-klay) – The French word “giclée” is a feminine noun that means a spray or a spurt of liquid. The word may have been derived from the French verb “gicler” meaning “to squirt”.

The ketubot from our production are generated from high resolution digital scans of handmade ketubot and printed with archival quality inks onto canvas, and fine art paper. The giclee printing process provides better color accuracy than other means of reproduction.

Giclee prints are in the present days the most respected and finest printing methods for the ketubot lovely look. Once you approve the proof we can print the ketubah within two working days.

Handwritten lettering

The Jewish tradition to write the ketubah text by hand is to beautify the wedding mitzvah. The calligraphy lettering as you can see is not as narrow as the digital font, but in the final form it looks much more original. However, you can choose the digital font for your handmade ketubah without handwritten lettering.
