Images are generated from high resolution digital scans and printed with archival pigmented inks onto coated cotton canvas or fine art acid-free paper. The Giclee printing process provides better color accuracy than other means of reproduction.
Their aspect is actually astounding and you will be amazed by the finish and the feel of them!

The archival quality of the Giclee print rivals traditional printing processes and is commonly found in museums, art galleries, and photographic galleries everywhere. These prints will keep their looks for many years indoors (60 to 80 years minimum).


“Bolinas lagoon reflections” giclee on canvas, framed

A Giclee on paper will have to be framed with acid-free material and protected with glass or plexiglass. (Anti UV kind is recommended for very sunny rooms.)
A Giclee on canvas is coated, stretched on bars, wired and ready to hang.
It looks very similar to an original canvas.

You may choose to add a frame around it but it is not necessary because it has printed edges wrapped around so it looks good from any angle!

When bringing your Giclee Prints on Paper to your favorite frame shop, ALWAYS REQUIRE that the matting and backing material will be ACID-FREE . It’s very important for your prints on paper (even the back of them) to be only in contact with acid-free materials so that their quality and durability stay optimum. We can’t guarantee the durability of our prints if you do not heed this requirement.
