What Is a Giclée?
“Giclée” is a French word that is derived from the verb “gicler” meaning “to spray.” “Giclée” became a popular term referring to a printing technique using the most advanced inkjet printers to create amazingly accurate reproductions of original fine art.
The most advanced process of creating a giclée starts with photographing the artwork using a moving table fine art digital camera, capable of capturing an image with a resolution as high as 1,000 lines per square inch. The image is then printed onto either archival paper or canvas using jets that can spray streams of archival ink 1/100th the diameter of a human hair, allowing for every detail of the artwork to be reproduced accurately. Up to 12 pigments can be used, and these fade-resistant inks can last over 100 years when cared for properly.
Giclées are rapidly gaining popularity among collectors, dealers, and art lovers because these prints maintain an unmatched trueness to their originals. This high level of replication coupled with their archival quality make them a wise investment.
