Giclée or Digital Fine Art Print
Giclée is a term for Fine Art Digital Prints made on inkjet printers and is typically used in reference to high-quality prints. The term was coined by an American printmaker Jack Duganne in 1991 and describes the way the ink is applied to paper during the printing process.
The word Giclée, is derived from the French verb gicler meaning “to squirt or spray”. The Giclée printing process involves squirting or spraying microscopic dots of pigment-based ink onto high quality Art Paper or Canvas.
My Giclées are printed on a Canon Imageprograf with 12 colours pigmented ink
( 2400 lines ) and the paper is hand-picked from professional ranges to give maximum choice and quality to the final print. In my expo ”Paris Metro” I am using Canson Edition Etching Rag 310 gr paper.
