Giclee printing (Digital Printing)
The word Giclée (“g-clay”), is derived from the French verb gicler meaning “to squirt or spray”,
The Giclée printing process involves squirting or spraying microscopic dots of pigment-based ink from an inkjet printer onto high quality art paper or canvas. The image is colour corrected to attain the closest possible match to the original work if required. The image therefore has all the tonalities and hues of the original painting.
Giclee prints can be produced on any type of paper that you wish. A wide variety of substrates are available, including various textures and finishes such as matte photo paper, watercolor paper, cotton canvas, or artist textured vinyl which makes using this technique very effective due to its flexibility.
One of the advantages of Giclee printing is that once the scan is made, you can order as many or as few as you wish.
