About Giclée

Gicleé prints are created with an IRIS printer which sprays millions of tiny droplets of ink onto an absorbent surface producing an archival fine art piece without a digital signature.

The paper or canvas is carefully mounted onto a drum that rotates as it's sprayed with 4,000,000 tiny droplets per second by 4 calibrated color streams of archival inks. 512 chromatic changes are produced, with over 3,000,000 possible colors of saturated, nontoxic water-based ink. The result is a continuous-tone print with the precise hue, value, and density of the original.
