Giclée Print, what is it?

A giclée print is a high quality, fine art, digital print printed on an inkjet printer. These prints are archival quality because they are printed with fade-resistant inks on acid-free paper.

Giclée prints are sold as “open” or “limited” editions.  An open edition is not restricted by number; a limited edition is restricted to a number decided upon by the artist. Therefore a limited edition print is generally of greater value than an open edition print. I restrict my limited editions to 25 or less.

How did a giclée print get its name?

Jack Duganne, a French printmaker, first coined the term giclée in 1991. Noticing his inkjet squirted its ink, he derived the name from the French verb gicler meaning to squirt or spray.
