About Fine Art Giclee Printing

Giclee (jhee-clay) - Derived from the french verb gicler meaning to spray or squirt. The term giclee print typically connotes a certain elevation in printmaking technology. Images are high resolution digital scans printed with archival quality inks onto various media like fine art canvas or watercolor paper.  In the Giclee printing process, a fine stream of ink—millions of droplets per second—are sprayed onto archival art paper or canvas.

Artists at the printery, or atelier, work with the image on the computer screen to get it as accurate as possible. Because no screens are used, the prints have a higher apparent resolution than lithographs. The dynamic color range is like serigraphy. The fine art prints made using the Giclee printing process provides better color accuracy than other means of reproduction. The effect is similar to an air brush technique, but much finer.


The fine art prints made using the Giclee printing process are advantageous to artists who find it not feasible to mass produce their work, but want to reproduce their art as needed or on demand. Once an image is archived, additional reproductions can be made with minimal effort and cost. Thus the up-front cost of mass production and the need to inventory large quantities of finished rints are eliminated and printing is done on demand. Another tremendous advantage to Giclee printing is that artwork can be reproduced to almost any size and on various media, giving the artist the ability to customize art prints to the artlover's needs.
