All giclees are inkjet prints. The only difference between really good ones ("giclees") and bad ones ("inkjets") is, to some extent, the quality of the printer itself and, to a larger extent, the pre-press work and the knowledge of the people doing the printing. A lot of work has to be done in pre-press to photograph the work, to set it up for printing, to calibrate the computer monitor/printer, and the really good giclee printers have to know how the ink their using reacts with the paper they're using.Kdh12 wrote:calling it a gilcee is a stretch
it is an inkjet
Notice that ZeroFriends stuff looks really good, especially considering their price point? They've used the same paper and the same inks forever, I'm pretty sure, because they did the legwork to make sure it would work right. Make sure you're working with a high-quality digital image to start, stick with a proven ink/paper combo you're familiar with, and then you're pretty much sure to get a good result.
You can do really nice giclees, and you can do shitty ones, but every single one is just inkjetting.
