Giclée

French for "sprayed ink." A sophisticated printmaking process produced on an IRIS ink-jet printer, capable of producing millions of colors using continuous-tone technology. Also, a print resulting from this process, also called an Iris print. Giclées are 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 having a broad range of tonal values.
