About Giclée Prints


Giclée: commonly pronounced "zhee-clay," is an invented name for the process of making fine art prints from a digital source using ink-jet printing. The word "giclée", from the French language word "gicleur" meaning "nozzle", was created by Jack Duganne, a printmaker working in the field, to represent any inkjet based digital print used as fine art. The intent of that name was to distinguish commonly known industrial "Iris proofs" from the type of fine art prints artists were producing on those same types of printers. The name was originally applied to fine art prints created on Iris printers in a process invented in the early 1990s but has since come to mean any high quality ink-jet print.

Artists tend to use these types of "Giclée" printing processes to make limited edition high end reproductions of their original two dimensional artwork, photographs, or computer generated art. Giclée style prints are much more expensive on a "per print" basis than the traditional four color offset lithography process originally used to make such reproductions. "Giclée" are an economical alternative for collectors specially if the artist enhances his/her work and production is limited. Giclée style printing has the added advantage of allowing the artist to control every aspect of the image, its color, the substrate printed on, and even allows the artist to own and operate the printer itself. Because of this, Giclée style prints can technically be called "prints", i.e. an image where the artist has a hand in actual production.
