Thanks to all who have replied.  I used Giclée for the label.  Having been
an advertising photographer in NYC in a previous incarnation all I can say
is, "You can take the boy out of the city but you can't take the city out of
the boy".

Sudek used the term "pigment print" as well...

Maybe the best way is to educate the public about the nature of inkjet 
printing and not hide from the term. I know, it's not a romantic term, but 
things is what they is...even Irving Penn had a show a few years ago with 
inkjets (at Pace, I believe).
