FINE ART PRINTS (Giclee)
The Definition : Giclee (zhee-klay) - The French word "Giclee" is a feminine noun that means a spray or a spurt of liquid. The word may have been derived from the French verb "gicler" meaning "to squirt". In giclee printing, no screen or other mechanical devices are used and therefore there is no visible dot screen pattern. The image has all the tonalities and hues of the original painting.
The term "Giclee print" alludes to an elevation in printmaking technology. Images are generated from high resolution digital scans and printed with archival quality inks onto various substrates including canvas, fine art, and photo-base paper. The Giclee printing process provides better color accuracy than other means of reproduction. Archival quality ensures that the prints are light-fast and non water soluble; made to last a lifetime.
All my prints are printed professionally with archival inks on acid free velvet fine art paper, which is a bright, textured, heavyweight paper (very similar to watercolor paper). The copyright watermark you see in the photo will not appear on the print. Actual image may vary in lighting and color due to the differences of computer monitors. All prints will be signed and include a white border around the image for easy matting & framing.
PHOTOGRAPHIC PRINTS (Chromogenic)
Archival Chromogenic prints are produced by exposing an image on photographic paper and then processing it through methods of photographic chemistry. These images are printed on Kodak Supra Endura Professional Photographic Paper, which has an extraordinary color gamut and state-of-the art image stability), including four surfaces: Glossy, Matte, Lustre, and Metallic.
