What is a Giclée?
The Art Publishers Association’s official definition of “Giclée” is straightforward. A Giclée is a modern print medium emanating from Iris technology and not offset printing technology. The major difference is in the quality of the reproduction. Offset printing from a printing press relies on dot patterns, banding and other such visual signatures that can disrupt the clarity of a fine art reproduction. Giclée prints do not demonstrate these digital signatures, allowing for extremely accurate reproduction quality.
Another favorable aspect of Giclées is the idea of print-on-demand capability. In the past if an artist wanted to publish an art print, all of the prints had to be printed all at once in advance. An artist might have hundreds or even thousands of prints archived for future sales. The artist would have to deal with moisture, ultraviolet fading, tears, bent corners, etc. Now an artist can simply “print-on-demand.” In other words, an artist can now print reproductions of his work as he sells them.
Giclée prints are not fugitive. When images from woodcuts, etchings, engravings and even offset reproductions are produced over and over again, the quality actually gets worse and worse over time as the blocks and plates wear down. The exact opposite occurs with a Giclée. Because the art is a digital file, the reproduction will always stay the same and not become fugitive. In fact, the image could actually improve over time as the development of Giclée technology improves.
“In conclusion, a purchase of a Giclée reproduction is the closest thing to owning the original.”
