A giclée print is made professionally using highest quality archival pigment giclée ink and archival fine art papers. The high quality ensures the print will last for 75-100 years without fading.

Limited edition means that there are only a certain number in existence and offers an affordable alternative to owning a reproduction of an original painting.

 

Do you offer a framing service?

All paintings are created on stretched canvas which will have hanging string attached to the back and is ready to hang unframed.

Due to the vast choice of frame styles however, framing unfortunately cannot be included with the art. It is best for customers to find a local framer to choose a suitable frame. With smaller pieces, like limited edition giclée prints, an assortment of frames can be sought in high street stores at very reasonable prices.
