GICLEE FINE ART
A giclee fine art print refers to a machine-made reproduction using the latest and most sophisticated ink-jet technology. The name comes from the french word GICLEE (pronounced zhee-clay) which means fine spray. In this printing method a spinning roller carries the media (fine art canvas or paper) while infinitely small pixels of rich, vibrant inks are sprayed on it. A giclee print is quite simply the closest replication of an original artwork that is currently possible...a superb quality fine art reproduction. The giclee is quickly becoming the new standard in the art industry and is widely embraced for its superior quality.
Above all, prints on canvas look exquisite, impressive and far more beautiful than paper prints. Canvas doesn't need to be framed with protective glass, so the image can be seen clearly without the glare. The natural texture of the canvas gives the look and feel of an original painting, and canvas giclee prints are far more durable than paper prints.
