Giclée Prints

 

What is a Giclée?

A giclée is a new technology in print making. Giclées are made with large format high end professional inkjet printers. Giclée is a French word meaning "to spray." Instead of being "pressed on" the surface of the paper as in traditional offset printing, these inks are sprayed giving the resulting prints a far richer look that more closely resembles an original painting. Thousands of dots are sprayed in a fine mist on the paper or canvas. Giclée prints from high end professional printers produce a fineness of detail and a richness of color that is unavailable in traditional prints.
