WHAT ARE GICLÉE PRINTS?
Giclée Prints have the authentic "look and feel" of high quality watercolor paper and are produced using professional archival pigmented inks. Giclée prints are known for capturing details using a 100% cotton hot pressed paper which is acid, lignin, and chlorine free. It is also pH buffered with calcium carbonate for a true archival sheet that will last over 100 years.
All prints are professionally printed with archival inks.
How will my art/print be shipped?
I believe that all prints and originals should be packed and shipped with the utmost care. I use USPS and personally package all my works to ensure that it arrives to you in the quality that it leaves.
How is the art/print packaged?
Prints are shipped in a photo mailer or padded enveloped and protected by a sleeve. The print will be carefully placed between two pieces of cardboard to ensure that it does not bend. Alternatively, they may be mailed in print tubes to avoid damage during transit. FREE shipping for all prints shipped within the U.S.
Originals will protected by a hard plastic sleeve such as a heavy toploader or mounted on a mat board & plastic sleeve before shipped in a flat envelope. All original art panels or aquaboards are wrapped in plastic stretch wrap/Krystal Seal bag to assure no scratches or damages will come in contact with the surface before being mailed in a poly bubble mailer for extra protection.
Does you ship internationally?
Yes, but I am responsible for any delay or additional fees that may be incurred by customs. All shipped items come with tracking.
Will tracking be provided?
Absolutely! In fact, shipments are never sent out without tracking. All shipments are tracked by USPS or UPS. However, it may take a few hours for tracking to work after it has been shipped out. If you cannot locate your package please contact USPS/UPS directly and they can assist you.
When will my order be shipped?
Prints have a turnaround time of 7 days due to processing time and hand-embellishments. If you are ordering without any embellish enhancements then the turnaround time will be roughly 3-5 business days. Prints are professionally printed and screened before they are sent out.
What materials are the originals made with?
I usually use artist grade watercolors (M. Grahams and Daniel Smith) and artist colored pencils (Faber Castell Polychromos and Prismacolors).
