The word Giclée (pronounced "zhee-clay") is French for "spray of ink". In today's digital art world, the word refers to museum-quality fine art prints produced with continuous-tone, large format ink jet printers on media such as watercolor paper and canvas. Giclée prints begin as original art, photographs or a digital image. Original artwork is photographed and scanned to produce a digital file. Critical color correction requires proper adjustments in tone, contrast, sharpness, and other factors to produce an exceptional quality reproduction. The computer image must be matched with the final print for consistent, high-end results. Every step of the Giclée process requires continuous care to produce a quality print that reflects the artist's intention.

Giclée prints may be produced on an as needed basis and do not require mass production. Once the original image is digitally scanned at high resolution and normal image cleanup is performed, the image is archived and printed on a high-resolution large format ink jet printer. The upfront cost of mass production is eliminated and printing is done upon demand.

Image permanence is a concern to artists and collectors. The wide format Roland Ink Jet Printer, with its 6-color pigmented archival inks, guarantees a long term high-quality image life. For more information, visit:
