Giclée Fine Art Printing

Giclée (zhee-klay) - The French word "giclée" means a spray or a spurt of liquid. The term is derived from the French verb 'gicler' meaning 'to squirt'.

Giclée denotes a state of the art printmaking process where images are generated from high resolution digital scans and printed with archival quality inks onto archival paper with an image quality so outstanding that the print looks like the original.

Giclée prints are created typically using professional 8-Color to 12-Color ink-jet printers. These large industrial printers have fine print heads that can produce incredibly detailed prints when using archival paper.

The quality of the giclée print rivals traditional silver-halide and gelatin printing processes and results in exceptional detail that makes it suitable for museum or gallery display.
