What is a giclée print?

It is a digital print. A giclée is the term for a fine art digital print, often a reproduction but occasionally a computer generated original. It is made from a file stored on a computer. Before the advent of fine art quality digital prints, the vast majority of fine art prints were made using offset lithography.

Giclée prints have become an established part of the print trade in the UK since about 1999.
