Glossary

Giclee

The term "giclee print" ( pronounced "zhee-clay") ) is a French word "le gicleur" meaning "nozzle", or more specifically "gicler" meaning "to squirt, spurt, or spray" which is how an inkjet printer works. Images are generated from high resolution digital scans and printed with archival quality inks created typically using professional 8-Color to 12-Color inkjet printers onto various substrates including canvas, fine art, and photo-base paper. The giclee printing process provides better color accuracy than other means of reproduction. No screen or other mechanical devices are used and therefore there is no visible dot screen pattern.

Limited Edition

A limited set of identical prints, separated and differentiated by numerical designation, and any other embellishments such as hand-enhancements or remarques, are often personally signed by the artist. Numbering indicates the size of the edition and the number of each particular print. Thus, 9/30 means that the print is the 9th impression from an edition of 30.

Artist's Proof

Artists proofs are those impressions from an edition that are specifically intended for the artist’s own use. These impressions are in addition to the numbered edition and are so noted in pencil as an artist proof or A/P. The legitimate number of artist’s proofs for a given edition is usually around 10% of the total and signed as such.
These artworks which have the letters A/P next to the edition number generally cost more than a limited edition because there are fewer of them.
Oftentimes they have numbers marked in Roman numerals such as III/X.
