The first choice for fine art reproductions, giclée (pronounced zhee-clay) refers to an individually produced, high-resolution, high-quality fine art digital print made on a specialized inkjet printer.
Giclée literally means “to spray or spread” and refers to the way the ink is deposited on the surface of paper. Tiny droplets, of varying size, are deposited with extreme precision onto the surface of the desired paper. The result: an image of exceptional quality; offering brighter colours, crisper details and long-lasting colour.
Giclée prints can be printed on any number of substrates from watercolour paper to canvas, vinyl and transparent acetates.
Giclée is an archival process, using both archival media and inks; so your print is guaranteed to last between 80–100 years, with the exception of direct sunlight, storage and most importantly, the way the prints are handled.
