Are you looking for higher quality in your prints? Join me in this post and I will show you not only what fine art printing is, but also a brief review of its history and its advantages.

Fine art printing or also called giclée (coming from the verb "glycer" which means to spray) is a printing technique that is characterized by spraying the ink in the form of microdroplets continuously on the paper, which must be that prepared according to determined quality standards. These microdroplets receive a specific electrical charge so that those that are not necessary are discarded.

As for colors, tones in cyan, magenta, three types of gray and other less common ones such as orange and green are usually added depending on the type of inkjet printer.

Where are you from?

It was during 1991 when the term giclée was used for the first time, after Jack Duganne, head of the Fine Arts department at the Nash Editors studio, coined the term, thus making a clear differentiation in the printing quality achieved with the Iris printers.


The combination of technology, printing technique and the technical requirements of the paper results in an extremely sharp image with exact borders, weaves and patterns that together with true-to-life colors and shading result in images with exceptional print quality.

It should be noted that fine art prints can last up to 200 years as long as conservation conditions are favorable.

Finally, if you are wondering where to purchase this type of prints, we remind you that in our store you will find fine art paintings and prints printed with 12 Lucia Pro Canon inks , with an estimated lifespan of 200 years in a photo album, 80 years under glass and 50 years without glass.
