Giclee to be generally scrutinized in the art community.  Over time the method and definition became more accepted in spite of artists who still had their minds wrapped around the IRIS printing method. With these disagreements developing over time, the Giclee Printers Association was created in 2001. The GPA had nine standards to be met by its members in order to avoid confusion on what a true Giclee was. Quickly finding that not all artists could meet the standards, the GPA then created a lower form of standards, which applied to true decor.
 
Although art on metal has been around for some time now, it still has some artists reluctant to the idea. Some feel the process might not give the picture the desired value, or that the final print will not capture the creator's original work. Some artists think that the final print will have shade alterations and that it will take away from the intended feel that an illustrator wishes to project. Other artists that are more accepting of this process think that the method will give a certain edge and actually enhance their work.  The use of the metal can bring another dimension to certain works of art and actually enhance them, creating a whole new form.  When used with the right piece, this form can add luminosity and volume. It can highlight and add depth to areas in the painting or photograph that would otherwise look flat.  It is also very durable and can even be hung outdoors on patios or walls and will not weather, adding a nice addition to an outdoor kitchen or garden wall.
