INFORMATION ON PRINTS AND ORIGINALS
All prints are Giclée (zhee-KLAY)- which simply means fine art digital prints. Images are generated from high resolution digital scans and printed with archival quality inks onto various substrates including canvas, fine art, and photo-base paper.
Although no reproduction process replicates all colors the same way the eye sees them, the Giclée printing process provides better color accuracy than any other means of reproduction.
The quality of the Giclée print rivals traditional silver-halide and gelatin printing processes and is commonly found in museums, art galleries, and photographic galleries.
All prints are sprayed with Matte PremierArt Print Shield to extend the life and protect them from damage. This is one of the few sprays that will not change the appearance of the finished print, and it will almost double the life of the print.
