What is Giclée

Giclée (zhee-KLAY) is a neologism coined in 1991 by printmaker Jack Duganne for fine art digital prints made on inkjet printers. Duganne wanted a name for the new type of prints produced on large-format, high-resolution industrial prepress proofing inkjet printer they had adapted for fine-art printing. It is based on the French word gicleur, the French technical term for an inkjet nozzle. The French verb form gicler meant to spray, spout, or squirt.

Artists generally use this method to make reproductions of their original two-dimensional artwork, photographs, or computer-generated art. Professionally produced inkjet prints are much more expensive on a per-print basis than the four-color offset lithography process traditionally used for such reproductions.

Peter Heisler's Art is Available in Giclée on Aluminum or Canvas.

The metal medium emotes a contemporary edge, with a high-gloss and luminous finish that make the colors pop. The reflective properties of aluminum and unique imaging technology produces vivid colors, crisp detail, and added dimensionality. The metal print has rounded corners and is ready to hang. There is no need for a frame.  

Metal Print Care

Metal prints are easy to clean, ready to hand and built to last. To clean and remove fingerprints, use a commercial glass cleaner and wipe with a microfiber towel or soft cloth. The chemicals will not harm your print. The edges can chip, so use care not to drop or bump the edges on a hard surface. If you plan to ship your print, protect the edges and corners with cardboard or bubble wrap.
