Digital Print


Digital prints are also commonly termed gicl?e due to their printing source. Gicl?e is an invented name for the process of making fine art prints from a digital source using ink-jet printing The word "gicl?e" is derived from the French language word "le gicleur" meaning "nozzle", or more specifically "gicler" meaning "to squirt, spurt, or spray". It was coined by Jack Duganne, a printmaker working in the field, to represent any inkjet-based digital print used as fine art. The intent of that name was to distinguish commonly known industrial ?Iris Proofs? 4 from the type of fine art prints artists were producing on those same types of printers. The name was originally applied to fine art prints created on Iris printers in a process invented in the early 1990s but has since come to mean any high quality ink-jet print.
