Giclée (jhee-clay) is a French word meaning "spraying of paint." The word is used to describe prints produced by a high definition inkjet printer. Giclées use digital technology to enhance and preserve the character of the artists's original. The printing is done with costly pigment based archival inks printed on museum quality canvas or rag paper. The result is an image that rivals the beauty of the original. Giclées are found in most major art museums and fine art galleries, validating this new form of art.
