Giclée Printing

The giclée process uses environmentally safe, water-soluble dyes and works by translating a digitized original from any source into a high-speed stream of microscopic color droplets. Prints appear smooth and continuous in colors and tone because the original droplets are comparatively the size of a human red blood cell.The giclée process allows reproductions to be printed on a variety of surfaces such as premium archival watercolor paper. Giclée prints also allow the artist the versatility of controlling color relationships. The rich saturation of color is comparable to dye transfer and has a velvety surface reminiscent of either mezzotint or sheet-fed gravure.
