What is a Giclee Print? Pronounced, zhee’clay, the word comes from the French, meaning to spray, which is exactly what an ink jet printer does. The quality of a giclee print is far superior to all other forms of printing.
Giclée prints are not to be confused with a pulled print. A pulled print is an original piece of fine art and not a copy. Pulled prints are made by printmakers from a master image they create themselves.
In brief, giclée reproductions were introduced to the market in the late 1980s . The quality of a giclée print is far superior to all other forms of printing, it’s the closest an artist can get to matching their original 2-D artwork.
