Giclée, as a phrase, was coined in 1991 by printmaker Jack Duganne for. It uses seven pigmented ink printer cartridges and is widely used by artists, galleries and print shops for high quality printing, including processes that use fade-resistant inks.
The word giclée was adopted from the French by Duganne. He wanted a name for the new type of prints and was specifically looking for a word that would not have the negative connotations of “inkjet” or “computer generated”. 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. Duganne settled on the noun giclée, meaning “the thing that got sprayed”.
