Giclee or Digital Print – A fine art print that has become more precise with the advent of the revolutionary printing process Giclee (zhee-clay) a French term meaning “spray of ink.” In the Giclee process, a fine stream of ink is sprayed onto archival art paper or canvas. Each piece of paper or canvas is carefully hand mounted onto a drum which rotates during printing. Exact calculation of hue, value and density direct the ink from four nozzles. This produces a combination of 512 chromatic changes (with over three million colors possible) of highly saturated, non-toxic water-based ink. Since no screens are used in Giclee printing, the prints have a higher resolution than lithographs and the dynamic color range is greater than serigraphs.
