What is a giclee?

The term “giclee” is a French word that was coined in 1991 by printmaker Jack Duganne for fine art digital prints made on inkjet printers. Artists often use inkjet printing to make reproductions of their original two-dimensional artworks. Giclees are printed with archival quality inks onto various acid-free substrates including canvas, fine art paper and photo-based paper. The giclee printing process provides better colour accuracy than other means of reproduction. Giclee reproductions can last well over 100 years.
