www.graficartprints.comUncategorizedWhat 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.

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.
