A brief history of giclée printing /archival pigment prints

Giclee prints are often known in exhibitions as archival pigment prints, this term is increasingly becoming the standard term used in the art world.

The word Giclée ("gee-clay"), is based on the French verb gicler which means "to squirt or spray” and was originally coined by printmaker Jack Duganne in 1991. Giclée printing is a fine art digital printing method using specialist archival pigment inks and acid-free papers; creating gallery-quality inkjet prints with excellent depth of colour, longevity and stability.

The print process involves squirting microscopic dots of pigment ink onto high-quality fine art or photographic papers using sophisticated high-end inkjet printers with exceptional accuracy, wide tonal range and colour gamut.

Studies have shown that Giclee Prints colour vividness can last in excess of 200 years with tests by independent bodies such as Wilhelm Research and printer manufacturers such as Epson. This gives assurance to collectors and art buyers of this type of printing method.
