Giclée printing and What It Means.
Giclée (pronounced Gee’clay) is a French term meaning to spray or squirt, which is how an inkjet printer works. However, it is not the same as a standard desktop inkjet printer, and is much larger and more detailed. Giclée prints can be a little over a meter wide and are printed on high quality archival papers. Giclée is the best way to produce archival reproductions of your fineart and photography.
Do Giclée printers use ordinary printers inks?
No. We use only brand name, special light-fast inks. Our inks are archival certified and if treated properly, will last a lifetime. The way the image is scanned is different also. The original is scanned directly on a drum scanner or large flatbed. If the image is larger, or cannot be taken off the stretcher frames, then a professional large format photograph must be taken of your works.
What kind of printing paper is used for Giclée prints?
Our Giclée prints are printed on 100% Rag Watercolor Archival Paper.
