About Giclee Printing

 

Giclee (zhee-klay) is a French word "giclée" that means a spray or a spurt of liquid. The word may have been derived from the French verb "gicler" meaning "to squirt".

 

In giclee printing, no screen or other mechanical devices are used and therefore there is no visible dot screen pattern. The image has all the tonalities and hues of the original painting. The giclee printing process provides better color accuracy than other means of reproduction. Archival quality ensures that the prints are light-fast and non-water soluble.

 

The quality of the giclee print rivals traditional silver-halide and gelatin printing processes and is commonly found in museums, art galleries, and photographic galleries.
