Giclee (zhee-klay) - The French word "giclée" means to spray, or a squirt or a spurt of liquid. The word may have been derived from the French verb "gicler" meaning "to squirt".
Images are produced by high resolution digital scannings and using high quality ink jet printers are printed with archival quality inks onto various materials including canvas, fine art, and photo-base paper. The giclee printing process provides better color accuracy than other means of reproduction.
Giclee prints are created by using professional 8-Color to 12-Color ink-jet printers. Modern technology printers are capable of producing incredibly detailed prints.
The quality of the giclee print rivals traditional printing processes and is commonly found in museums, art galleries, and photographic galleries.
