Giclée (pronounced ZHēˈklā) is a French term meaning to spray or squirt, which is how an inkjet printer works.
The process, used for high quality, art reproductions, is not the same as a standard desktop inkjet printer. It's larger and highly detailed. Giclée is the best way to produce archival reproductions of original fine art.
Original artwork is scanned, using an extremely high resolution, 300DPI to 2400DPI, art scanner, 48 Bits - 281 trillion colors.
Epson UltraChrome PRO archival ink technology produces exceptional color prints that last up to 200 years. Giclées are printed on Reflections satin canvas, then stretched and stapled on Richeson stretcher bars and cross braces, for gallery wrapped, fine art prints, ready for hanging.
