The word giclée is based on the French words gicleur, which means “nozzle,” and gicler, which means “to squirt, spurt, or spray.” Giclée was created by a printmaker in the early 1990’s who wanted a distinguishing name for the new type of prints from large format, high resolution inkjet printers adapted for fine-art printing. Giclée has come to represent the highest standard in professional, museum quality print for artists and photographers.
