Giclée is a popular fine art reproduction technique. A giclée is a museum quality print on fine art paper or canvas. It is an individually produced, high-resolution, high tech reproduction done on a special, large format printer.
Giclées are created when the image of a painting is scanned and digitally enhanced on a computer to match the original fine art. The artist then sends image to a high-resolution inkjet printer, which sprays millions of microscopic droplets of ink onto various substrates to create an image with smooth tonal gradation. Professional artists often combine the superior quality of giclée prints with hand embellishments to give the look of an original fine art image.
The giclée printing process provides superior color accuracy compared to other reproduction methods. The premium inks produce images with smooth tones and rich colors, making extraordinary artwork. The archival inks are designed to resist fading and the chemical composition, allowing the ink to hold fast to the printed surface. This results in an image that has the tonalities and hues of the original painting.
