Giclee (pronounced 'zgee-KLAY') is a method of reproducing art through a printing process very similar to modern ink-jet printers. It has become a very popular method of creating limited edition fine art reproductions.
Giclee prints can be printed on a number of different media and can be so color-true that they are virtually indistinguishable from the original.
In the past few years, the word “giclée,” as a fine art term, has come to be associated with prints using fade-resistant "archival" inks and the inkjet printers that use them. These printers use a color process which serves to increase the apparent resolution and color gamut and allows smoother gradient transitions.
