Giclée es una palabra francesa que significa “esprayar o esparcir”. En este caso hace referencia a la forma en que la tinta es depositada sobre la superficie del papel, tela u otro soporte preferido por el artista. Un giclée es una obra de arte reproducida con tecnología digital inkjet mediante maquinaria especializada de alta resolución y produce unos resultados semejantes al original. Aún así, no podemos considerar que todas las impresiones digitales inkjet sean giclées.

What is Giclée printing?

Giclée is a French word meaning “spray or spreading.” In this case refers to the way in which the ink is deposited on the surface of paper, cloth or other carrier of choice for the artist.

A giclée print is a work of art reproduced by digital inkjet technology through specialized machinery producing high resolution results similar to the original. Still, we can not consider all inkjet digital prints as giclées.

This technology, which deposits tiny droplets of variable size, controlled with extreme precision on the support, provides outstanding results, with the same characteristics of a continuous tone image.

Our printers produce images with a (perceived) apparent resolution of 2800 dpi. This means that a printing system that uses a fixed frame, would need 2800 points for every linear inch print. At present, no other printing system can produce images with the resolution.
