What is Giclée printing?

Of French origin, the word Giclée comes from the verb "gicler" which means to spray, spray. At THE MADRILEÑER we currently use this term to describe a printing process that has revolutionized the reproduction of digital works of art, achieving exceptional quality and an appearance very similar to that of manual works.

What is the giclee printing process?

The giclée printing process is a digital reproduction technique that allows you to print works of art in high quality and with an appearance very similar to that of a handicraft. This process is done using 8 to 12 color professional inkjet printers, capable of precisely spraying millions of microscopic ink droplets per second.

The giclée printing process is carried out on a support, which can be paper or fabric, in any of its finishes. The image is printed achieving great detail in the shapes and allowing the production of plots, patterns and continuous tone, thus obtaining a high-quality digitized piece but with the appearance of manual reproduction imitating strokes, brushstrokes, etc.

What advantages does the giclée printing process offer?

The giclée printing process offers a series of advantages that make it a highly recommended reproduction technique for digital works of art:

  1. High quality: the giclée printing process achieves a high quality reproduction of digital works of art, with great definition in the details and faithful reproduction of colors.

  2. Durability: the inks used in the giclée printing process are pigmented and light-stable, which ensures the durability of the reproduced works for more than 100 years.

  3. Variety of supports: the giclée printing process can be carried out on a wide variety of supports, such as paper or fabric, in different finishes, which allows it to be adapted to the needs and tastes of the artist and the client.

  4. Versatility: the giclée printing process allows the reproduction of digital works of art with different styles, techniques and formats, adapting to the needs and tastes of the artist and the client.
