Giclee Prints

 

Giclee (pronounced zhee-clay) prints are becoming the standard method for producing fine art prints. Unlike lithography, Giclee does not have a four color dot pattern. It is an almost microscopic spray of pigment ink with virtual continuous tone as in the original art. The deep saturated colors have a wide gamut and do an excellent job of recreating the vision of the original art. All of the detail and subtle tints and blends are retained. Giclee prints are not mass printed, but produced individually at a much lower quantity than lithography. When given normal print care, their archival quality is excellent.
