Giclee Printing - Fine Art Printing

Giclee Printing

Giclée is a neologism coined in 1991 by printmaker Jack Duganne for fine art digital prints made on inkjet printers. The name originally applied to fine art prints created on a modified Iris printer in a process invented in the late 1980s. It has since been used loosely to mean any fine-art, most of the times archival, printed by inkjet. It is often used by artists, galleries, and print shops to suggest high quality printing, but since it is an unregulated word it has no associated warranty of quality.

20 years ago when I started custom picture framing most if not all art reproductions were made using offset copies from a printer. Today however things are much different. Most high quality print reproductions are made using large format printers made by Canon or Epson.
