More information about my giclée prints...

Why buy a print over original art?  Giclée print prices are more affordable. Enjoy the image today without much money out of your pocket. However, remember that this type of  print will not increase in value whereas original artwork most likely will appreciate. So if you want to give artwork to your children and you can afford to do so, it's better to buy the original.

How long do Giclée prints last before fading? This depends on the quality of the ink and paper, as well as the atmospheric conditions in which the print is hung. The prints I sell are made on archival quality watercolor paper, which because of its porosity, lack of coatings, and ability to receive ink, has been rated  as possibly the best media for producing long lasting prints. The inks used are high quality, UV resistant, and archival.

In general, the more a print is directly exposed to sunlight, humidity, heat and airborne pollutants, the more rapidly fading will occur. Placing a print in a frame under glass, and ideally UV rated glass, will extend its color fastness. Placing it on a wall that does not receive direct sunlight will further extend its lifetime.

A best estimate is that a giclée print may last 50 years in worst conditions and 150 plus years in best conditions. 

Why does a  Giclée print cost more than a poster? Mass market reproductions such as posters made by the off-set printing process are made on non-archival papers with non-archival inks. These cheaper types of prints are produced in large print runs, so they cost less to buy but often are not color accurate to begin with and less color fast (i.e. fade more quickly). In other words, you pay for what you get.

How do I frame my Giclée print? Like any print it's best protected when placed in a matt board and framed.  Matts and backing boards made of archival materials are recommended. People generally have a frame shop do the matting and framing. On the other hand, because these prints are all to standard sizes you could easily go to an art supply store, buy a matt and frame, and do the framing yourself!

Custom Prints: You can custom order any of these images to your preferred size. Contact me directly to place a custom order.
