What is a Giclée?

Giclée (zhee-clay) is a French word meaning “to spray.” The giclée process creates high-quality prints and reproductions that are produced on professional large format ink-jet printers, using light-fast, pigment-based inks on archival substrates (paper/canvas). The high quality of a giclée captures the luminosity and texture of the original artwork and the colors are brighter and last longer than with traditional lithography.
