"Giclee" (pronounced "zhee-clay") were created in the early 1990's. The Giclee process produces fine art prints or archival prints from a digital source using ink-jet printing. The Giclee printing process was originally used to proof lithographs. Now it is more common to print with Epson, Canon, and other professional printers that use archival inks that are superior to those that Iris printers use. Giclee style printing allows the artist to control every aspect of the image, color, and the substrate (media) printed on.
These Giclees can be printed on a wide variety of paper.
