What is Giclee?

 

Giclee, also called digital lithograph, is a printing technique using the latest computer technology.Giclee means "spraying ink" in French, and unlike lithographs and silkscreen prints, it is characterized by printing without using a plate.

 

The original image created by the artist is converted to digital, and the ink is directly sprayed onto the printing paper or canvas without using the screen. By using pigment-based ink, which is said to have a light resistance of about 200 years, and high-quality German printing paper, you can obtain a finish with excellent reproducibility of the original image. High-quality prints with beautiful colors and vivid expressions.

 

Unlike poster printing, it can be said that another work of a form different from the original picture, which is created by the artist himself in collaboration with the print studio.
