What is a giclée?

    In giclée printing, no screen or other mechanical devices are used and therefore there is no visible dot screen pattern. The image has all the tonalities and hues of the original painting. 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 expensive).

    The process employs six or more colors of fade resistant, pigmented inks and finer, more numerous, replaceable printheads resulting in a wider color gamut. The ink is sprayed onto the page, actually mixing the color on the page to create truer shades and hues. If kept out of the sun, a giclée reproduction will remain true for decades.

    The quality of a giclée reproduction rivals traditional silver-halide and gelatin printing processes and is commonly found in museums, art galleries, and photographic galleries.

    Giclée reproductions can be produced on any paper as you wish. I chose to print on archival acid-free watercolor paper, which will avoid yellowing and deterioration of the paper.
