giclee print is made using a special printer sometimes called an Iris
printer. They are high quality 6 color prints and are often difficult
to distinguish from the original. My prints are reproduced on heavy
watercolor stock exactly like the original using Somerset or Epson
archival papers. The inks are a 6 color MIS archival inkset.
8x10 PrintPrints that
are shown as 8x10 are matted prints that will fit a standard 8 x 10
picture frame. The image size is generally 5.5" x 7.25
inches. The prints are shrinkwrapped for protection during
that are shown as 11x14 are
matted prints that will fit a standard 11 x 14 picture frame. The
size is generally 8.25" x 11 inches. The prints are shrinkwrapped
protection during shipping.
Limited edition prints are generally produced in the same size as the
original. They are matted to fit a standard frame size and
usually have a narrow margin area around the image for
signature purposes. All Limited edetion prints are made in a
numbered series and range from a series of 20 to 100 prints. Each
print is numbered and hand signed in the lower margin and then
shrinkwrapped for protection. When the last print in the series
is sold the original image files for reproduction are destroyed and the
series is complete which makes each of those prints unique and
are printed on heavy card stock and center folded. They have the image
on the front with a small black outline border. The name of the
print is printed on the back. The inside is left blank for you to
use as a personal notecard or thank you card. Each set of 5 cards comes
with matching envelopes.
