What is Giclée?

Giclée (pronounced “zhee-clay”), is the process of making fine art prints from a digital source using ink-jet printing. The word “giclée,” from the French language word “gicler” meaning “to squirt, spurt, or spray.”
The giclée process uses fade resistant “archival” inks and printers with multiple cartridges for variations of each color which serves to increase the visual resolution and allows smoother gradient transition.

The giclée printers spray over 1 million droplets per second onto the selected substrate, which is higher than a traditional lithographic print and has a wider color gamut than serigraphy. There are no screens used with this method of reproduction hence, giclée prints render deep, saturated colors and have a beautiful painterly quality that retains minute detail, subtle tints and blends. The preciseness of the printing along with the depth of color range captures the subtleties and nuances of the original oil image. The inks used to create these prints usually boast an archival life of over 100 years.
