Giclee printing for the best results - What is it?

“Giclee” (pronounced Gee’clay) is a French term meaning to spray or squirt, which is how an inkjet printer works.  But this type of printer is to the same as a standard desktop inkjet printer.

It is much larger and due to the technology can produce prints that are much more detailed and in sizes an quality well beyond the desktop variety. Archival inks and papers are just part of this unique process.

Do Giclee printers use the same kind of ink as your desktop printer?

No they do not. 

The prints we offer of my work are made with only special professional quality.

The color rendition is outstanding due to the many more colors that are used.
