Giclee is based on the French language word “gicler”, meaning to squirt or spray.
The term giclee-print has become associated with fine art prints. This are prints mostly made with large format printers (I use Epsons). Using archival inks and archival substrates. Giclee is a conttemporary print medium between the more traditional print processes (scree-print, etching, lithography) and often superior to those.
Designing on my monitor and processing a Giclee (fine art) print takes a long time and energy. I use the best possible materials for work and I consider them works of art and not a mass product.
Of course a certificate comes with every print. Describing the proces and materials I used producing that print. The certificate is signed, numbered and “chopped”.
