Giclee printing, also called modern lithography, is a method used in graphic art. The method is based on the motif being printed in high quality on canvas or watercolor paper. Giclée is known for its clear and crisp colors and sharp motifs. The method requires certified equipment and is printed with water-based inks in at least 9 colors.
