Prints

Giclee
My prints are printed with the high quality Giclee process. What is Giclee you ask? It is a Sophisticated and Widely Celebrated Printing Process. Giclee (pronounced “gee-clay”), is a highly sophisticated inkjet printing process that was introduced in the late 1980s. Its so sophisticated, in fact, that it produces prints, which truly capture the artist's original intent. Even museums have realized the vast potential of this technology and have made giclee editions a permanent part of their collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York), Museum of Modern Art (San Francisco) and Museum of Contemporary Art (Los Angeles) to name a few.

My Giclee prints are created from high-resolution digital and or film images, using the finest quality ink and paper stock available, resulting in color saturation and image detail capture that exceeds other types of image reproduction.

I specify my Giclee prints to be generated on a 7-color Epson 9600 ink jet printers. These printers are often referred to as 8-color printers, but that's because they include 2 types of black inks - matte black for fine art papers and canvases, as well as a black ink designed specifically for photo papers. As you might imagine, the Epson 9600 produces amazingly detailed prints of both works of fine art and photographs. And, I use Epson Ultrachrome inks, exclusively, because of their archival quality and true colors. All of this guarantees you a museum-quality work of art that can be enjoyed for generations. Your print will be laid down on a luster surface.

Matting
If you choose the frame option you will receive a standard acid free mat in a very light neutral color. All framed art comes with this the mat and the size will be proportional to the size of the print.

Editions
All prints are offered in signed numbered editions with 500 being the largest number. The number of editions per image drop as the size of the print goes up.

Framing
If you choose the frame option you will receive you selection mounted, matted, framed and glazed with UV protective acrylic.  For an example of the frame material, click here.  If you are interested in something other that what you see here please feel free to contact me and discuss other options, cost and shipping charges.

Oversized Frame Shipping Charge
For frames over 50" combined outside dimensions, an Oversized Frame Shipping Charge is added. This reflects our shippers' surcharges for such large packages, as well as the additional packaging materials required to ensure that your oversized frame arrives just as beautiful as the day it left our workshop.

Please note that outside dimensions are different from frame size:
Your frame's outside dimensions will be larger, taking into account the width of the moulding.
Your frame size is always the dimensions of the opening you want in your frame (sized to fit your art or mats). Your frame size will always be smaller than your frame's outside dimensions.
The oversize shipping fee is based on the outside dimensions of the frame — taking into account the width of the moulding. The outside dimensions of your frame will be larger than the frame size you use to order your frame. Outside dimensions = Width + Height + (4*moulding width) - (4*lip)
Frames over 90" combined outside dimensions cannot ship assembled through regular carriers. However, we do have alternatives — please contact me.
