Giclee (pronounced ‘zhee-clay’) is a term coined in 1991 by printmaker Jack Duganne for the technology of fine art or photograph reproduction using a high-quality inkjet printers.
The giclee process produces a highly saturated and dynamic color range that is an exact color representation of an original work of art. Many times it is produced on the same watercolor paper or canvas as the original.
Placed side by side it may take the artist to distinguish the original from the copy. The giclee is an affordable option to buying original works of art.
