Giclée art print

The Giclée technique offers the highest possible print quality. In this technique, the motifs are printed on the highest quality museum / archival paper - free of acids and lignin (matte and age-resistant art paper). This type of paper is extremely smooth, which gives to the print a soft feel and a stunning sense of dept.
The paintings are printed with high-quality inks that are resistant to UV light and are harmless to health. InkJet prints are made with an extended color palette, where by using twelve different colors it is possible to achieve an extremely colorful image, with all color nuances. Under optimal lighting conditions, this type of printing also guarantees up to 100 years of flawless color stability.
Original images are carefully scanned with a scanner.
Modern scanning makes it possible to create the most accurate record of the original artwork. Thus, the printed reproduction is extremely authentic and difficult to distinguish from the original with the naked eye.

Taking care of the giclée fine art prints

To preserve the original condition of the print, do not remove it from the protective sleeve before framing. Although the art prints are made with the highest quality materials, the inks can leave fingerprints. Therefore, it is recommended that you wear protective gloves when handling the art print. Make sure you only touch the edges of the print and not the ink surface.

If the print is rolled in a protective tube, it must be flattened before framing. But first, gently unroll it and be careful not to break the paper. Find a flat surface and after gently unrolling your print, place a board or large book on it so it covers the entire surface of the image.

Leave it like this for at least 24 hours. If the image is still slightly curled after this time, leave it weighted for another day.

Once the print is perfectly flat, simply place it in the frame and hang the picture on the wall.

Advice for framing

Placing the painting under a glass surface plays an important role in protecting the artwork, as the glass protects the print from external environmental influences, such as ozone, UV light, moisture, dust, soot, oils, and other inconveniences. However, be careful that the glass surface does not distort the look of the image, rather accentuates it.

Once the print is placed in the decorative frame, it is recommended not to expose it to direct sunlight. As always, sunlight has UV rays that can contribute to color fading, regardless of the quality. UV light can also damage paper and its structure, which can become brittle and increasingly porous over time. UV protective glass stops this process, which allows the print to remain intact and keep it in excellent condition. A suitably chosen frame can further emphasize the work of art and increase its aesthetic value.

For appropriate and high-quality framing, we recommend that you contact art studios that professionally frame paintings. Their knowledge and experience will will best help you in choosing in choosing a proper frame.
