A Quick History on the Term "Giclee": The word "giclee" was created by Jack Duganne, a print maker working at Nash Editions (of the famed rock band Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young). He wanted a name for the new type of prints they were producing on the IRIS printer (model 3047), a large format high, resolution industrial prepress proof ink-jet printer they had adapted for fine art printing. He was specifically looking for a word that would not have the negative connotations of "ink-jet" or "computer generated." To make the word descriptive of of ink-jet technologies, he based it on the French language word "le gicleur" meaning "nozzle," or more specifically "gicleur" meaning "to squirt, spurt, or spray." (Also see our page titled: The Term "Giclee" for the complete story on Giclee's origins.)
