Giclee = inkjet. Period. Not more, not less.

Everything else is a desperate, snobbish,  pretentious marketing effort to create an aura, mystique, something special, "artistic", blah, blah, blah... and thus differentiate itself from those common, "banal", omnipresent, home and office inkjets.

Yes for ten years ago.
How about inkjet = Giclee ? How many agree?

I'm tempted to start offering prints in two ways:

either Pigment on (---) Paper, or "Giclee" (at significantly extra cost).  Cheesy

Shucks! every time I get a great new idea, somebody else has already made money off of it.

I doubt there will be a consensus anytime soon  Undecided.  The art world does seems to like more "artsy" terms for technical processes, so "giclee" is becoming to inkjet what "serigraph" has been to screen printing since the 1930s. And "chromogenic color print" is to "C-print" (itself an abbreviation for the early Kodak Ektacolor type C process) what "silver gelatin print" is to all types of B&W prints made in the dark room on papers with silver-halide sensitized gelatin emulsions although some artists do add "RC" in the title to prints made on resin coated papers.  Even "C-print" has become a generic term for any modern RA-4 process compatible color print.

The confusion abounds and not just in the art world - check out this recent article and have a laugh:

That was stated by the IAFADP to achieve an Giclee approval.
Wikipedia: "Artists generally use giclée inkjet printing to make reproductions of their original two-dimensional artwork....."
I think Sven raises a good point here. "giclee" is how painters describe the photo reproductions of their paintings, so it also has the connotation of "non-original." I had several people at the show I've been posting about ask for the "original painting." Perhaps the take-away is that I should stop shooting still lifes that look like paintings  Smiley (example attached for illlustrative purposes)
