Giclée (play /ʒˈkl/ zhee-clay or /ˈkl/), is a neologism coined in 1991 by printmaker Jack Duganne[1] for fine art digital prints made on ink-jet printers. The name originally applied to fine art prints created on IRIS printers in a process invented in the late 1980s but has since come to mean any high quality ink-jet print and is often used by artist, galleries, and print shops to denote such prints.
Oh Baby! This is good stuff!

"The droplets are given an electric charge so that the ones that are not needed to form the image are deflected electrostatically into a waste system." - that is quite something! :)

I have a source now for large prints. Its very enjoyable to see the quality of such a large image on paper for framing.

I would guess that it is quite expensive to print and some colors probably would not be as vivid as they are on monitor. :)

I bought my husband a giclee on canvas a few years ago at Jackson Square in New Orleans. It is quite beautiful and looks quite excellent stretched. I'd like to get a few of my photos done this way.
