What is a Giclee
Fine Art Print?
Giclee fine art print refers to a machine-made reproduction using
the latest and most sophisticated ink-jet technology. The name comes from the French word
GICLEE (pronounced Zhee-Clay) that means “spray". In this printing
method, the media (in our case the artists
canvas) is carried by a
spinning roller while infinitely small pixels of rich, vibrant
archival inks are sprayed on it at a very high speed. This renders an
amazingly smooth and consistent image true to the original painting, a superb
quality fine art reproduction.
Giclee is quickly becoming the new standard in the art industry, and
is widely embraced for its astonishing quality by major museums, galleries,
publishers and artists. A Giclee Print is quite simply the closest
replication of an original artwork that is currently possible.
