The word giclée was adopted by printmaker Jack Duganne. He wanted a name for the new type of prints he was producing on a large-format, high-resolution industrial prepress proofing inkjet printer that he had adapted for fine-art printing. In fact he was looking for a word that would not have the negative connotations of "inkjet" or "computer generated". It is based on the French word gicleur, which means "nozzle”. 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.
Fine art prints use fiber based papers printed by ink jet plotters. Photolab applies this method since 2006. Now days we use an 11-ink Epson 9900 and the brand new 9-ink Epson P20000, which offers you breathtaking fine art prints in sizes up to 162cm width. With a variety of smooth, medium or heavy textured fine art papers, giclee can be your best option for fiber based prints.
