Giclée can add a little art to the walls in your home. The term “giclée”, coined by Jack Duganne, became popular in the late 1980s. It refers to any ink-jet print that is high-quality and is often used by artists, print shops, and galleries. Rather than traditional ink-jet printings, giclée prints are not made up of microscopic dots of ink.
