Frequently Asked Questions

A 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 Print   Prints 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 shipping.

11x14 Print  
Prints that are shown as 11x14 are matted prints that will fit a standard 11 x 14 picture frame.  The image size is generally 8.25" x 11 inches.  The prints are shrinkwrapped for protection during shipping.

Limited Edition Print   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 collectable.

Notecard    Notecards 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.
