Originals or reproductions? Some of my work is available for purchase as an original. Others are offered as Giclee prints which can done in many sizes and even on a variety of surfaces, to suit your aesthetic preferences, budget, and space requirements. Ask me about this!
Giclee printing for the best results - What is it? "Giclee" (pronounced Gee’clay) is a French term meaning to spray or squirt, which is how an inkjet printer works. But this type of printer is not the same as a standard desktop inkjet printer. It's much larger, and due to the technology can produce prints that are much more detailed and in sizes and quality well beyond the desktop variety. Archival inks and papers are just part of this special process.
Do Giclee printers use the same kind of ink as your desktop printer? No they don't. The prints we offer of my work are made with only special professional quality, light-fast pigment-based inks. In addition, you'll have the best color renditions with our Giclee prints because many more colors are used. Our inks are certified as archival, and if treated properly, will last a very long time. The way the image is scanned is different also. The original is scanned directly on a professional scanner. If the image is too large for the scanner, then we will take a professional large format photograph of the art piece.
What about sizes? Depending on the piece, the printing can be done from very small to quite large. That's just one of the beautiful qualities about this exciting process--flexibility! Get the size you need for your budget and space. Paper or canvas for Giclee prints? Our custom Giclee prints can be produced on different types of paper but I recommend only high quality 'fine art' archival paper. Printing on canvas offers the look of a fine painting regardless of the original medium the work was done in. You can even order it mounted and ready to hang.
