The giclee print (pronounced zhe-klay) is a high-quality print on archival canvas that uses millions of ink droplets per square inch. The giclee printing process can produce up to 16 million colors, creating brilliant color saturation that is the next best thing to the original. These prints are generally the same size as the original painting.
There are three different types of giclee prints that I offer: Regular Edition, Artist Proof, and Hand Embellished. Below is a description of each:
Regular Edition- A normal giclee print in which the print comes signed and numbered
Artist Proof- A small group of prints set aside from an edition for an artist's or printer's use. Typically some of the first prints pulled from a limited edition of prints are marked as an A.P. Artist's proofs generally draw a higher price than other impressions.
Hand Embellished- A giclee print in which I re-paint a certain portion of the painting on the print. Each print is done uniquely so they each are original without having to pay the price for an original painting.
