Soft Blooms- Print
Giclee flat prints are hand signed in pencil on the white border. Giclee canvas prints are signed on the back side.
Giclee Prints: Will be printed on German archival somerset paper, using archival inks. This is museum quality printing made to last 100 years without fading. When framing/matting be aware to also use Archival Mattes.
Press Prints: This is a more cost effective way of printing made to last 30 years, but may fade if placed in direct light for a prolonged period of time. Printed on watercolor textured paper. only available up to 11"x14"
Gallery Wrap: The image will be printed on canvas and stretched on 1-1/2" thick stretcher bars. This will have the edges finished with the image of the painting. No framing is required. It makes for a clean look when hung on the wall just as is.
*SIZING: When ordering an 8x10 print for example, the IMAGE will be exactly 8"x10". It will come with a 1/4" white border all the way around, making the final paper size 8.5" x 10.5". This will be the case for all print sizes. When ordering printing on CANVAS or Gallery Wrap Canvas: the canvas itself will measure exactly the size purchased.

What is gallery wrapped canvas?
This is the canvas I typically work on. It is a nice clean look when hanging on the wall. It does not require a frame. The canvas itself is 1.5 inches thick, and I continue the painting onto these edges. You can still have a gallery wrapped canvas framed by your local framer.
What is a Press Print?
