Frequently Asked Questions
Q.What’s a giclée?
A.Start with a digital image. Add an ink-jet printer. Spray the ink onto a surface, in accordance with the digital image. Result – fine art print, known as giclée.
Yes, it is more involved than that. Technology has changed just a bit since the first giclées, or Iris Prints, came out in the early '90s. We now have archival inks. And, according to Wikipedia (the on-line dictionary), we also have a whole new industry based on manufacturing specialized printing surfaces for giclée prints. The result is a print that retains its integrity much longer than the first prints we had from this process.
