What’s a Giclée print on canvas ?
The giclée printing process provides better color accuracy than other means of reproduction. In giclée printing, no screen or other mechanical devices are used and therefore there is no visible dot screen pattern. The image has all the tonalities and hues of the original painting. Giclée (pronounced Gee’clay) is a French term meaning to spray, which is how an inkjet printer works.
Archival quality ensures that the prints are light-fast and non water soluble. All of our canvases have UVB protection built in to protect against fading and moisture and are designed to last for over 100 years.
What’s the difference between Gallery wrapped (stretched) and Rolled canvas?
Wrapped prints canvas are stretched and mounted on a sturdy wooden frame and they are ready to hang, while Rolled canvas comes rolled in a tube for you to stretch on your own, or to display as you wish.
How is the canvas stretched?
We use a propriety blend of canvas that is stretched over 1.5 wooden stretcher bars.
Do you include hanging string with your canvases?
Yes. The string is securely attached to the back of your stretched canvas and provide excellent support even on bigger sizes. You will need just a nail or a hanger on your wall. If you have older walls or special finishes please take this into consideration before installation. If you have any questions regarding the hanging hardware , please do not hesitate to contact us.
How long will the canvas last?
The canvas material we use is archival quality and has a specifically designed coating for superior color gamut and resolution. Canvases are only intended for indoor use, but even in display of direct window light should still last for decades to come.
