What is Giclée? Giclée (zhee-klay) - The French word "giclée" is a feminine noun that means a spray or a spurt of liquid. Giclée prints are created typically using professional 8-color to 12-color ink-jet printers.
Giclée prints are produced using a state-of-the-art twelve ink high-sustainability Canon Lucia EX pigment ink printer; these pigment inks combine the glossiness of dye ink with the vivid colors and weather resistance of pigment ink. With this printing technology colors are more true to color than chemical prints and can achieve 1200 dpi resolution with ink drop sizes as small as 4 picoliters.
