Giclee Vs. Prints

Posted by John Kiernan | February 19, 2014

The word giclee was coined by Jack Duganne in the early years of the digital printmaking business. giclee was derived from the French word “gicler” which means to spray or squirt a liquid. The term was developed so that artists, galleries, and dealers would not have to market their prints under the generic label of “inkjet” prints. The term giclee is meant to be applied only to archival digital prints made with fine art paper or canvas.

The Giclee prints can be hand embellished by adding personal information such as name, agency, date of retirement or date of graduating the Police academy. The prints on paper is less expensive, however- can not be customized.http://www.oldtowneditions.com/category/blog/ nleomf.com
