A Giclee print is the highest quality
print available today. Giclee, pronounced, Gee'clay, is derived from a French word meaning to spray or squirt. These prints are created using a high-resolution digital scan. This digital scan is then printed on archival watercolor paper of varying thicknesses with archival colored inks. The process is digital printmaking with a printer that uses minute droplets of archival ink to create prints that cannot be duplicated by other printing techniques. Because there is no visible dot screen pattern the resulting image has all of the subtle tonalities of the original art. Typically giclee prints are generated using professional 8 color to 12 color ink-jet printers.
This highest quality printing is made affordable for collectors because each limited or open edition print can be printed on demand.
