What is a Giclee Original Print?

A Giclee (pronounced Zhee-Clay) is a French phrase coined in the 17th Century who's meaning translates close to "fine spray" in English. The term is currently used regarding the latest form of high quality original art print production methodology using high end types of permanent pigment spray printers to produce original archival quality art prints.

The technique involves the medium, such as 250 pound watercolor paper or canvas we print on, being carefully moved while infinitely small pixels of vibrant, rich archival inks are sprayed at a very high speed onto the surface. The result is an amazingly smooth and consistent image, a Museum Quality Fine Art Original Print.

Even though the technique used for producing a Giclee is close to that used for ink-jet printers, there are only a few printers actually capable of producing a true Giclee and they are the Iris, the Epson 2000P, 2200P, Pro 7600, Pro 9600, & Pro 10600, or Roland printers.

After printing a special UV protectant agent is applied that provides an invisible top coat. It will not yellow and will resist cracking. Each original photographic print is inspected and goes through several quality control checks before the artist gives his final approval and signs & names the final print.
