Difference between a digital print and a giclée print

One of the common questions customers ask is what is the difference between digital prints and giclée archival prints. ... Giclee printing is one of the best print reproduction methods available. It is a process that uses a  premium 8 or ideally 12 color ink jet printer to achieve the best colour gamut, acid free papers, and uses pigment based archival inks. Museums and Galleries demand that prints meet archival standards  in quality.  

Leading companies such as Hahnemuhle, Canson ,St. Cuthberts Mill, Ilford, Breathing Color, etc. to name a few produce award winning archival paper and are commonly used. Leading suppliers of inkjet printers such as Epson, Canon and HP provide award winning graphics printers that meet archival ink standards.
