What is Giclee?

From the French language, to print fine art, museum quality prints from a digital source utilizing ink-jet printing. It is often pronounced “ghee-clay” or “zhee-clay”. It is derived from the word, “le gicleur” meaning the nozzle. Giclee translates into fine art reproductions from the original. The use of modern equipment and the fascinating world of quality ink allow the printing to extend longevity and the fastness of those inks. These fade resistant inks give us fine archival images that will last several lifetimes and longer if cared for properly. These images are magnified in color when place on quality photo paper or cotton canvas.
