Fine Art Print/ Giclée/Piezo Graphic
Fine art print is a high resolution printmaking technique whereby high quality ink is sprayed onto paper. When the process was invented in the late 1980s the name originally applied to fine arts. At the same time, fine art print is also known as giclée or piezo graphic. To clarify the word Giclée we have to look at the French word gicleur, which means ‘nozzle’. While the term piezo is derived from the Greek word piezein, meaning to press. Therefore an indefinite number of prints can be made with this technique. However Toyism fine art prints/giclées/piezo graphics always come in a limited edition, are numbered, signed and come with an official certificate.
