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.


Through The Yellow Window is part of my fine art street photography pictures. This was taken in the Alfama district of Lisbon, Portugal, where I found an old beaten-up BT telephone box that was missing the door. It was just a case of waiting for a suitable subject and composition.  You have the subject a guy framed within the two sides of the phone box and a window frame framed within a frame of the other side of the phone box (top right corner). 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 to life with its gloss finish.

Hahnemühle FineArt Baryta is a bright white, cellulose-based FineArt inkjet paper with an inkjet coating specially tailored for Fine Art 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.
