what is a Giclée?

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

The apparent resolution if 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. Giglée 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.

For now you can use the Paypal account and you would be able to buy prints (like a lithography or a poster type).
