What is a Giclee?  

Giclée (zhee-clay) is a French term, in this case, meaning "spray of ink". An Iris ink jet print on watercolor paper is known as a giclée.

The apparent resolution of the digital print is 1,800 dots per inch, which is higher than a traditional lithographic print and has a wider color gamut than serigraphy. Giclée prints render deep, saturated colors and have a beautiful painterly quality that retains minute detail, subtle tints and blends.

The difference between a lithography and a print (giclée) is that the lithography looks like a poster (high quality reproduction) and the giclée looks like an original watercolor. The production cost of a giclée is higher because it is printed on high-quality, acid free heavy watercolor paper.
