GICLEE - WHAT IS A GICLEE? (ZHEE-CLAY)

FIRST: the word is pronounced Zhee-clay or (zee clay). Heavy on the Z The
word giclee dates back to the late 1980s and is a French term meaning 
"spray or squirt" which refers to the digital printing process. I cringe 
every time I hear this word butchered.

I recently attended a presentation of a company that sells giclees in great quantities and no one at the company
could pronounce the word. 

Giclee printing is recognized as the next best thing to owning an original. 
And you can print one or several at a time without having to make the 
100 or 1000 piece commitment as with other printing methods. Although on a print by print basis they are more
expensive A particular size giclee may be $50 to $75.each and the same size offset Litho may be $3.00ea; but you
can buy 1 to 10 instead of 500 to 1000. And the quality is exceptional. It is generally archival with a long life
 and usually is closely controlled by the artist. 

Your work can be printed on watercolor paper or canvas. Cost will vary some because of choice you get to select.
Your printer can work from a furnished picture jpg or scanned image of the work or the original to be scanned.
There are a number of places on the internet that do this type of printing check out several.
