Giclée (pronounced “zhee-clay”) reproductions were originally developed in 1989 as a digital method of fine art printing.
The word Giclée is French for to spray on or to spray ink. The images are scanned and digitally stored in a computer and finally sent
directly to a high resolution, inkjet printer.
Unlike other printing methods, each image is sent to the inkjet printer individually, taking ap to an hour to print one A1 page.
The technology provides incredible detail and brilliant colour. The resolution (DPI or dots per inch) and the eleven-colour process
result in crisp contrast with rich, intense colour. The DPI is actually higher than in traditional lithography.
The mediums used are archival quality.
