I have removed the g word (giclÃ©e) from my vocabulary. Initially it seemed nice to have a word for what I do, but it has come to sound cheap & pretentious.
Print is a great word, fits. Etymology: Middle English prente, from Anglo-French, from preint, prient, past participle of priendre to press, from Latin premere
But there is a problem.
Print is associated with reproductions. My prints are productions. There is no original, other than the file on my disk, not even as visible as a photo’s negative. Once you see it, even online, it is a production!
I still call them prints, and even though they come in editions each one is an original!
(PS my title for this is post is not original, I saw it somewhere before, and it is around all over the net, a cligÃ©e)
