Giclée

Giclée is French for "sprayed ink." It is a sophisticated printmaking process produced on an IRIS ink-jet printer capable of producing millions of colors using continuous-tone technology. A giclée is often made from photographic images of paintings in order to produce high quality permanent reproductions of them. The extra-fine image resolution possible in this printing process permits retention of a high degree of fine detail from the original image, rendering deeply saturated colors with a broad range of tonal values.
