What is Giclée

Definition of Giclée
Giclée (pronounced “zhee-clay”) is a French word meaning “that which is sprayed or squirted”. With the advent of giclée, the art of reproducing fine art has become even more precise. Giclée inkjet prints have the highest apparent resolution available today. Since no screens are used, giclées apparent resolution exceeds that of lithographs and a color range that exceeds that of serigraphy. Displaying a full color spectrum, they capture every nuance of an original and have gained wide acceptance from artists and galleries throughout the world. The 100th print is equal in quality to the first.

For limited edition prints, Aaron Art uses archival Epson UltraChrome® inks in combination with 100% cotton rag 316 gsm acid free paper to ensure the highest color gamut and permanence of print integrity available today. For open edition prints, the same inkset is used in combination with Epson’s acid free Radiant White Watercolor Paper.
