Gicleé (Zhee-klay) Fine Art Prints
Simply put, a gicleé art print is printed with a commercial quality digital printer. These printers may print on a variety of substrates including canvas and archival quality paper.
These large format printers use up to 12 colors of archival quality ink.
A gicleé needs a high quality "digital capture" to produce a quality reproduction.
Color editing software and true color monitors are used to match the gicleé colors to the original work being reproduced. It is nearly impossible to match the colors of the gicleé exactly to the original. Therefore, adjustments and trade-offs made during the editing process make the "digital image" unique: thus, gigleé making is, itself, an art form.
