What is a giclée Print?

Giclée is a term for the process of making fine art prints from a digital image file using inkjet printing. The word "giclee" is derived from the French  word "le gicleur" meaning "nozzle", or more specifically "gicler" meaning "to spray". It was conceived in 1991 by Jack Duganne, a printmaker working in the field, to represent any inkjet-based digital print used as fine art.
