Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS A GICLEE PRINT? The term “giclée” (pronounced “ZHEE-CLAY”) is a French word meaning “to spray.” This term is used in the printmaking industry to refer to a print that has been made through an inkjet process, whereby the printer’s ink is “sprayed” onto a substrate creating a final output image. The prints are produced with archival inks on acid-free, 100% cotton rag, fine art paper. Giclée prints offer richness, detail, and depth that sets them apart from traditional offset lithography.
WHAT IS NOT INCLUDED IN THE PRICES QUOTED FOR EACH PAINTING? Frames and shipping are not included. Prints and originals are shipped in a large mailing tube by either United Parcel Service or the U. S. Postal Service and are usually shipped the next business day after the order is received for credit card orders.
DO YOU COMMISSION ARTWORK? Yes, usually from photographs that you supply. Several photographs can be combined to accomplish the result that you are seeking. Please visit the Houses page of this site and telephone or respond via email below so we can discuss your ideas in detail.
