What are Giclees?

Fine Art Giclees are stunning, high quality prints created with large format, professional printers with highly refined ink jets paired with archival high definition inks and acid free fine art based papers. They are printed on eco-friendly Cotton Rag Fine Art paper. Cotton rag is a very beautiful, thick paper with a slight texture that mimics the original work. All prints have a UV finish that protects against light, water, moisture, airborne contaminants and fingerprints.

What are the gallery-wrapped prints like?

Our archival grade, OBA-free canvas gallery wraps are printed using some of the latest technology in fine art, giclee-based printing, and archival-based inks.Every canvas is sprayed with a non-yellowing print varnish that is available in matte, satin, or gloss finish. Our varnish prevents scuffing and fading, and protects the canvas in humid environments. It also protects against UV light and is 100+ years archival certified!

I want to order a print but I don't see the size that I'm looking for offered? Do you offer custom sizes?

Looking for a specific size, material that is not offered on the site? Contact me directly. I’m happy to see if we can create exactly what you are looking for. A lot of work and love go into creating each available size, so there may be an additional charge for custom sizes.

Do you offer returns?

All pieces are made to order and therefore sales are final. We want to ensure that we sell only pristine items, so by the time you returned a print, it would be wrinkled and not sellable. If you are not sure if the colors you see in a painting are exactly what you want, just let us know and we are happy to send you more photos. No problem at all! We also offer the option to purchase a sample of the print in a 4”x6” size so you can see how the colors will look in your home. Then if you do end up ordering the print, email us and we will credit the cost of the sample to your order. 

Ultimately, I really want you to be thrilled with your piece. I have been known to make exceptions to this rule and offer to exchange the item for another piece. Any questions, contact me directly and we can see what we can work out. 

My print was damaged in shipping. What can I do?
