Giclee prints represent the highest evolution in printmaking technology. The giclee printing process provides better color accuracy and richer depth of color than other means of art reproduction possible. Because they are printed with pigmented inks they are estimated to last over 80 years without noticeable fading.
Larger format canvas and paper prints are limited edition, signed and numbered.* Both are printed with the same archival inks.
Canvas prints are gallery wrapped with the image printed on the sides and do not require framing. They have a UV coating to also protect against fading and dust. They come with a wire and are ready to hang.
Paper prints are printed on fine art archival paper and require framing under glass. They are unmated and are shipped with a foam board backing in a clear acetate bag.
*Smaller sizes marked with an asterisk are Open Edition and are not numbered nor are they limited edition.
