Ask an Artist - What about Giclee Prints?

As a printmaker Laura has quite definite views on giclee prints, but only because they create confusion over what 'print' means.  Peter is a painter and though he does not routinely make giclees to sell he has produced some as extra copies of portraits for clients.  Whether or not you include them in your artistic business they do create some dilemmas and some moral responsibilities for the artist.
