Giclée printing was introduced in the early 1990’s, and was more or less the first generation of digital reproduction.
Giclée is a French term meaning to spray or squirt, which is how an inkjet printer works
Giclée alludes to the digitally-controlled inkjet nozzles of a printer which precisely “squirt” millions of microscopic droplets of ink per second onto the media in place to form the image.
A typical 22 x 30 inch Giclée image is made up of well over one billion individual ink droplets!
The paper used to make Giclée prints resembles a traditional double weight, air-dried, fiber-based silver print;
It has the look of air dried glossy fiber based paper that many of us learned to love as we watched black and white images appear in the darkroom.
Archival pigment prints typically are rated to last longer than prints on color photographic paper; they can have a longevity of over 100 years and the choices of papers that can be used is far greater.
The Giclée printing process provides better color accuracy than other means of reproduction.
Giclée B&W prints are able to render a wider range of grays than traditional silver printing. These prints have been compared to platinum and palladium printing, in that the printing process places pigment on and somewhat in the fiber of the paper base and produces an image with a velvety black, and a long, even tone from black to paper white. With rich blacks and gentle highlights.
Literally dozens of museums in the U.S. and abroad have either mounted exhibitions of giclées or purchased them for their permanent collections. These include The Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York), The Museum of Fine Art (Boston), The Guggenheim (New York), The National Gallery for Women in the Arts (DC), The Walker Art Center (Minneapolis), and the Smithsonian Institution Libraries (New York), among others.
Digital C-Print (Lambda)
Lambda prints (commonly referred to as digital C-prints) are the modern version of C-prints.
The machine imposes an image from a digital file with lasers on to light sensitive paper that is then processed though chemicals similar to the chromogenic process.
These prints are a better choice for Diasec mounting with plexiglass.
