What is a Giclée Print?

Giclée is a neologism coined in 1991 by printmaker Jack Duganne for fine art digital prints made on inkjet printers. The name originally applied to fine art prints created on a modified Iris printer in a process invented in the late 1980’s. It has since been used loosely to mean any fine-art inkjet print.

Archival Pigment Print is the term of choice used by many gallerists to describe archival injet prints in lieu of the term giclée print.
