Giclée on Canvas, 8 x 10" unframed
Giclée prints are the latest digital printing technology of the 21st century. The word Giclée, pronounced Ghee-clay, is a French term translating loosely to “the spray”. This is because a Giclee uses hundreds of thousands of tiny dots “sprayed” onto the surface of canvas to create an image. Giclée prints can be produced in quantities as few as one. Giclées are printed using seven colors rather than the traditional four, giving the artist the ability to more closely match the colors to the original. Giclees are printed at 1440 dpi (dots per inch) using water based archival fade resistant inks. This gives the print incredible accuracy in detail as well as luxurious, rich, color. The fade-resistant inks are very durable. As with any art, Giclées should not be hung in direct sunlight.
