The term “giclee print” denotes an elevation in printing technology. Images are generated from high resolution digital scans and printed onto various substrates’ including canvas and fine art paper. The giclee printing process provides better colour accuracy than other means of production and is commonly found in museums, art galleries and photographic galleries.
