Giclée graphics are the result of a revolutionary computerized process. The French word, Giclée (pronounced "Zhee-clay"), describes this continuous tone reproduction method. This new medium is a blend of art and technology that achieves the intention of the artist more closely than any other means currently available.
Using data from the original painting gathered by a highly sensitive scanner, a state of the art graphics printer, called an iris printer, magnetizes, then sprays four million drops of a water-based inks per second onto a spinning drum that holds the paper or canvas. These environmentally safe inks are applied in droplets the size of a human blood cell with a computer controlled accuracy that is unsurpassed in the art world. After numerous proofs are personally worked on by the artist and printmaker, protective waterproofing and ultra-violet coatings are applied to the final version. The finished piece is a perfect representation of the artist's thoughts, translated digitally.
One of the keys to the success of this kind of print is the system's versatility. With computer control of the inkjets, over 16 million gradations of color are possible. The image can be infinitely adjusted by the artist until it matches the original. This adjustability provides the power to reproduce original work more closely than any other non-offset method of graphic printing, with the advantage of perfectly identical copies.
