The Giclée print has gained the admiration and respect of artists, photographers, graphic designers, and perhaps most importantly, the buying public.
Used by the Louvre Museum in Paris to substitute original works of art too fragile to exhibit, Giclée prints are known in the art world by the French word "Giclée." Giclée prints stand out because of their uncompromising fidelity and fineness of detail and graduation. With a resolution of 1800 dpi, the printer uses a continuous stream of minute ink droplets about the size of red blood cells to deposit the ink. Results are close to continuous tone prints.
When printed on archival art papers and canvas, the Giclée has the look and feel of original fine art.
