 Unlike lithographs and serigraphs, giclees have undergone extensive third-party fade testing. Prints made with pigment-based inks on acid free watercolor paper are estimated to last 130 years without noticable fading. Many original watercolor paintings will fade more rapidly than a well-made giclee.
It is recommended that a giclee be treated the same as any original watercolor painting. It should be protected from water, and should be displayed behind glass, away from moisture and direct sun light. As with any other valuable work of art, the giclee requires careful treatment  for a long life.
