The word Giclée (“g-clay”), is derived from the French verb gicler meaning “to squirt or spray”. Giclée, is used to describe a fine art digital printing process combining pigment based inks with high quality archival quality paper to achieve Giclée prints of superior archival quality, light fastness and stability. This Giclée print is created using a large format printer such as a Canon IPF9400S using pigmented inks, which with the 8 channel print head is capable of producing an extremely wide tonal range and colour gamut. The Giclée printing process involves squirting or spraying microscopic dots of pigment-based ink onto high quality fine art paper. The image is colour corrected to attain the closest possible match to the original work if required. The digital information is fine tuned to the type of paper or surface on which the image is to be printed, further ensuring fidelity to the original.
This type of Giclée printing utilises a special Matt Black ink which achieves a high fidelity reproduction of the original, giving a special vibrancy and depth to colours and lines, which is why this type of prints look so beautiful. However, at the same time it makes the surface rather delicate, so please handle the print with great care (white gloves recommeneded) to avoid scratching it. Otherwise, the image has great lightfastness qualities and will not fade, and therefore can be exposed to the sun without any problem.
