Q: What is a Giclee?

A: Giclee (pronounced “jhee-clay”) prints are high quality ink jet prints on canvas or paper. Inks and substrate are archival and relatively light fast. For longest life do not hang in direct sunlight. 

Q: What is gallery edging

A: A gallery edged canvas print is black with staples on the back of the frame so the print can be hung unframed if desired.

Q: What is the difference between a 3/4″ and 1.5″ stretcher frame.

A: Both sizes are available. While not necessary, a deeper frame is nice for larger prints and is especially suitable if the print is not framed.  There is an additional cost for 1.5″ frames
