Giclee & Fine Art Printing
The term “Giclee” is borrowed from a French word “le gicleur” or “nozzle”.
Used to denote any ink-jet based digital print intended for fine art consumption, the idea behind the name was to differentiate it from “Iris proofs” or the other type of prints artists were making at the same time inkjet printers became more common in the early 1990’s. However, since then, “Giclee” has come to mean any fine art print made on a high quality inkjet printer. In fact, today’s Giclee prints are high-resolution images with impeccable colors and finely tuned sharpness.
