What is Giclee
Giclee (g-clay) is an elegant, state-of-the-art reproduction. The name comes from a French printmaker's term for "fine spray", and was adopted to distinguish the technique from ordinary offset printing. A giclee is created by a digital printer's tiny ink jets that spray millions of droplets of water-based ink onto fine archival art paper or canvas (or linen) known as the "substrate". The combination of specific inks and substrate are carefully selected to assure maximum print longevity.
