The process of printing has made a lot of technical advancements and improvements over the years. The goal is to duplicate the original paintings as close as possible and we use the best method available, which is called “Giclee” printing. We are fortunate to be able to utilize one of the best facilities with the most updated equipment and experienced staff to end up with one of the finest prints available. After the image is captured, it is fine tuned, using proof prints until the image is close to the original as possible. This process is very time consuming and requires a lot of expertize and patients to get the colors matched to the original along with the detail that is in the original painting. The best updated inks (not dye) and printers are used.
A Giclee print is very stable, offering fade and color shift resistance for many, many years. With the proper care, Giclee prints have been estimated to last many generations. Of coarse humidity and light conditions are major factors that determine the print life which can be controlled. Canvas prints can be carefully cleaned with a lightly damp soft cotton cloth with “no” glass cleaner, furniture polish or other harsh chemicals.
Premium Canvas are used and then coated with special protective UV coating. Stretched canvas prints are attached over wooden stretcher bars with the hanging hardware in place. The wrap around edges are black to duplicate the original painting. Due to high shipping cost our larger Canvas Prints are sold stretched or unstretched. If purchased unstretched, the canvas comes with a 3" boarder for easier stretching, rolled in a tube or already stretched, hanger wire attached and ready to hang.
All Giclee Paper Prints are made of a heavy duty pro luster paper which really brings out the colors and are sold with a foam backing board in a clear acid free bag.
All Giclee Canvas & Paper Prints are sold in a Limited Edition of 250. Each is hand signed & numbered. A "Certificate of Authencity" is included with all Giclee Prints (except for 11"x14" Paper Prints).
