Giclees – A giclee print (pronounced “zhee-clays”). Giclees can be used to reproduce different types of art.
Giclee is a French term meaning “to spray”, referring to how an inkjet printer works and how giclee prints are usually produced. These large format inkjet printers use small spraying devices that can both match color and apply ink precisely, giving artists a high-quality print of their original art. One of the big advantages of Giclee printing is that you can print just one or as many as you wish. Maybe best said it’s print on demand.
But, not all inkjet printers produce giclee prints. It all boils down to these four elements: resolution, ink, paper, and printer type.
