What is a GiClee' ?
The word GiClée (said Zhee-clay) is a French word meaning fine spray. It refers to a print of the highest quality pigment ink-jet process, that offers archival qualities without bleeding or fading. The GiClée process is digital printmaking with an ink-jet printer, using a minimum set of 10 inks that places minute droplets of ink to create prints that cannot be duplicated by other printing techniques. Because there is no visible dot screen pattern, the resulting image has all of the subtle tonalities of the original. The accuracy of colour, tone and detail is reliant on the technical skills and knowledge of the technician, particularly at the point of artwork capture. In order to achieve a faithful reproduction of artwork: A three part workflow must be adhered to; 1. A high resolution digital file generated directly from the artwork using a high quality capture devise. 2. An ink-jet printer with a minimum set of 10 pigment inks. 3. An archival substrate. Explaining these in detail, we will save for another time.
