Green Door Giclée


Giclée Fine Art Printing

Giclée Fine Art Printing

Giclée Printing refers to a printmaking method that involves using a digitised image outputted from a computer to a large format inkjet printer. The term “giclee” is derived from the French for “spray” and was first coined by Jack Duganne, a printmaker, to represent an inkjet-based digital print used as fine art.

To qualify for the title of a “fine art giclée print” it should be made on archival quality coated paper, and printed with pigment-based archival inks, which are UV stable. The Fine Art Trade Guild has set minimum standards for a giclee print – it must score 6 or more on the Blue Wool Scale for light fastness, with an acidity level of between pH7 and pH9, to minimise discolouring.


Green Door Giclée This picture was taken during my trip to Lisbon, Portugal. This building was in the Alfama district of Lisbon the second oldest area in Europe and one not devastated by the earthquake in 1775. Green Door is a fine art picture of the once opulent door now with flaking paint which was once a beautiful entrance. The larger framed picture comes with a 30mm deep black wood frame with a white mount with a tapered black insert. The paper I have chosen to have this picture printed on is Hahnemühle Baryta, this is a beautiful heavy paper with an orange peel texture that brings the colour and the flaking paint on the door to life.

Hahnemühle FineArt Baryta is a bright white, cellulose-based FineArt inkjet paper with an inkjet coating specially tailored for FineArt use. The clearly visible, exquisite felt structure lends the paper its lovely soft feel and tactile surface texture to produce prints with stunning three-dimensional quality and depth. The high-gloss premium inkjet coating guarantees outstanding print results with perfect reproduction of colour and detail, deep blacks and striking contrasts.
