What is Giclee?


Giclee (pronounced zhee-clay), is a method of printing archival-quality fine art prints, either as art reproductions or photographs.

Here are some of the things you need to know about Giclee printing:

Giclee is Different from Regular Printing

Louvre - Giclee ManilaWhile it uses inkjet printing technology, Giclee prints differ from regular inkjet prints since the former employ large printers that use pigment based archival inks. Using such inks enables artists to create prints that are not prone to fading over time.  
Another important distinction that Giclee has from regular printing is that Giclee prints can retain even the finest details of the original artwork. 


How is this possible?

Giclee printers spray ink onto the material so colors overlap on the substrate naturally. In fact, the name of this method comes from the French term that means to spray or to squirt. This method ensures that your reproductions or photographs will remain faithful to your original artwork.

 

Your Choice of Paper Depends on Your Creativity

You can print your Giclee print on any type of our archival papers. Your choice depends on the creative decisions that you make, such as whether you want to print a black and white or a colored photograph. You may also choose a high gloss paper if you want the look of traditional photo paper. Or you may also choose to print a reproduction of your painting on canvas. The options are limitless.
