Cos'è Giclée

Giclée Print

A Giclée is a reproduction of individual high-resolution, printed on professional equipment by large format inkjet. This French term literally means "to spray". The quality of Giclée printing is superior in many respects to traditional lithography or offset printing. Giclée printing uses a minimum of six different colors as opposed to just four colors used in offset printing. The colors are brighter, more so with the mixture to obtain a high resolution continuous tone. The range of colors for illustrations in Giclée is also quite different from that of lithography. The details of the images are more engaging and have more vivid color tones and more vibrant. The colors are brighter, durable and in high-definition.

The Giclée was originally developed as a proofing system for commercial lithographic printing, introduced in the mid 80s, but it was later found that the presses can not reproduce the quality and colors of the Giclée. Thanks to their quality Giclée reproductions are well established between the new treasures of art, collectors want for their fidelity and quality, and they are often exhibited in museums and art galleries.

Therefore, Giclée printing has dramatically changed the process of reproduction of works of art, dubbing in digital mode. Aware that artists and art collectors pay great attention to the conservation of works of art, Giclée printing has responded adequately to the problem. Giclée, due to its pigment ink and its high quality media, does not change. The stability of Giclée print is synonymous of permanence
