What is a Giclée print?
The word “Giclée” is French for “sprayed ink.” Today, the term is used to describe a sophisticated inkjet printmaking process which creates the highest quality fine art reproductions. Giclée printing offers extra-fine image resolution, helping retain a higher degree of detail from the original fine art or photographic images
How long do your Giclée prints last?
A lot of research and development has gone into the various aspects and materials that make up a Giclée print. The archival nature of the print varies, but current scientific lab reports suggest that our recommended papers and Giclée printing process will produce a print that lasts between 100-200 years in optimal conditions. The high quality inks and perspex glazes we use on our frames offer great sunlight-resistance, but direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time could still fade a the print. Cheaper alternatives will fade rapidly in direct sunlight
Artworks are listed in cm and inches, which will I receive?
We produce prints and frames in both metric (centimetres) and imperial (inches) sizes. The sizing system being used depends on the country in which your order is being produced
Country of production:
EU = cm
UK = cm
Australia = inches
USA = inches
For example, an artwork size of 45x60cm/18×24″ would be printed at 18×24” if produced in the USA but 45x60cm if printed in the UK. The reason we make this distinction is so that artworks are sized in the measuring systems local customers are most familiar with. For standalone rolled prints, this also allows you to more easily get it frames at your local shop or picture framer
What back fixture will my frame have?
Each artwork arrives ready to hang with the necessary back fixture. The size and country of production will determine which fixture you get. The frame will either be fully strung or with a sawtooth hanger
