Fine Art or Giclée Printing

Fine art printing is also often referred to by the phrase Giclée printing.
This is a term fairly recently coined by print maker  Jack Duganne to describe fine art prints made on inkjet printers.  Whilst it originally referred to prints made on a modified Iris printer, it now encompasses the broad range of fine art inkjet prints.

It is often used by artists, galleries, and print shops to denote high quality printing but the use of the term is totally unregulated.  To combat the word Giclée being used by anyone who prints, some brands have created their own regulated measurement of quality, whereby printers are tested with regards to their processes, finished prints and service to determine whether they are allowed to display the particular mark of quality and authenticity concerned.
