Giclee is a high quality fine art printing process that utilizes over 250 ink jets in a myriad of colors and has revolutionized reproduction of fine art. A digital "capture" or photograph of an original art work is first step in the process; the information in that capture is fed to a computer to generate a high resolution image which can then be printed on paper, canvas or several other substrates. Each giclee is printed individually and when printed properly under the artist supervision will be an almost prefect match to the original art. Our paper giclees are offered for work that was created as watercolor on paper, likewise canvas giclees for paintings on canvas. If you would like to print a watercolor on canvas or canvas on paper, we would be happy to do this for you, please inquire. Additionally, other substrates are available such as plexiglass and aluminum and if you are interested please inquire.
Paper Giclees are printed on fine art watercolor paper delivered with the title and artist signature on the bottom margin with 2" margins around the image.
Canvas Giclees are delivered stretched on 1.5" stretch bars unless otherwise specified by the customer. We can deliver canvas giclee rolled and unstretched and will subtract 10% from the price as a refund. Please specify on your order form in the note section
Hand Embellishment is offered here on some canvas giclees and will require and additional delivery time of 1-2 weeks. A recommended painting for embellishment is one that was executed with many textural effects and in some cases metallic paints which do not translate as metallic in giclee printing, however all paintings can benefit from embellishment. It provides the look and feel of an original work of art and will be embellished by the artist in her studio. If you wish a canvas giclee to be hand embellished that is not offered, please contact us and the artist will embellish your art for you.
Framing is offered on a limited basis. Several original works of art for sale on this site are framed and we can email you photos of the artwork as framed before you chose to purchase with the frame. We will be expanding our framing options in the coming months. In the meantime if you wish your giclee to be framed, please contact us and we can suggest choices and prices.
Delivery Time. Please allow 10 business days as each order is custom printed. Hand Embellishment requires and additional 1-2 weeks. We take great pride in our art and making sure that you are satisfied with your order.
