Fine Art Prints On Canvas And Paper
Giclée (pronounced zhee-clay) is a french word meaning 'to spray.' The giclée is a high quality fine art print created from a digital file. The image is printed by applying millions of microscopic ink droplets directly to the canvas or paper. This technique delivers sharp details and a wide range of vibrant colors, while the printed dot pattern typically visible in a poster or a canvas transfer is eliminated completely.
Our giclée prints are museum quality and are equal to the giclée prints of contemporary artists found in major museum collections around the world. Our giclées are not only vivid, detailed and accurate prints, but are also durable and fully archivable artworks. Inks have minimal VOC's (volatile organic compounds) and are independently tested to archive in excess of 50 years. Fade resistance and a long lifespan make the giclée a sure choice for any fine art collector.

Fine Art Prints On Unique Substrates
Luxe Editions are innovative works of art that break the traditional barriers of fine art prints. Each artist has specifically developed imagery suitable for alternative substrates and materials. However, these works of art are also similar to a traditional giclée in that the technologically advanced printing process is able to achieve astounding detail, continuous tone and an amazing range of colors. Our inks are also 'green' and have minimal VOC’s (volatile organic compounds).

Giclée: Canvas, Fine Art Textured Paper Or Photo Gloss Paper
Maximum image size: 52" x 72"
We print on a premium, heavyweight canvas that offers a high level of detail and vibrant color with a gloss finish. Unstretched canvas prints are provided with an extra 4" beyond the image on each side to accommodate your own stretching / framing treatment. This extra border is composed of 2.5" mirrored image, plus an additional 1.5" of white canvas. Gallery wrapped canvas giclées arrive ready to hang. The mirrored border wraps around the 2" deep stretcher bars and the canvas is stapled on the reverse, eliminating any need for painting the edges or framing. All pieces come standard with saw-tooth hanging hardware for easy and stable hanging. If the work is for public installation, please consider our Contract-finish canvas option. This offering includes a harboard backing, a coating of varnish, and 3 point locking security hardware.
Edge Framed Canvas
Similar to our Contract Canvas option, this polycotton canvas is stretched around a hardboard backing and includes a UV varnish to protect against fading, scratches and punctures. The canvas is then finished with an MDF frame in a variety of laminate finishes - Blonde with wood grain, Espresso with wood grain and Black. The frame shows 1/4" on face, measures 2" in depth and security hardware is standard.
Fine Art Textured Paper
Maximum image size: 56" x 76"
Fine Art textured Paper is a heavy weight, cold press paper that has a natural white finish with a coarse, structured surface equivalent to traditional watercolor paper. Prints on this paper feature fine detail, vivid colors and deep blacks. All paper giclées have an extra 2 of white paper beyond the image on each side.
Photo Gloss Paper
LUXE Edition: Brushed Aluminum, Clear Acrylic, Eco-Friendly Bamboo and Glossy Laminate on Acrylic.
Maximum image size: 56" x 76"
This bright white, smooth, high gloss paper produces vibrant color, inky blacks and the finest detail of all our substrates. This paper works particularly well with photography and graphic images. Every print includes an extra 2" of white paper beyond the image on each side.
Each is available ready-to-hang or as artwork only.
The aluminum panel used is extremely lightweight, rigid and stable due to its 3-part construction. The face layer of brushed aluminum and back layer of painted (coil-coated) aluminum trap a solid polyethylene core to create a 1/8" panel that will not warp. In addition, this substrate is completely waterproof making it ideal for high humidity locations. Each corner of the aluminum substrate is rounded by 1/4". This slightly rounded edge adds a professional finish to the piece in a addition to protecting the corners from any visible damage. The ready-to-hang option includes an aluminum frame bonded to the reverse with architectural grade adhesive to float the artwork about 1" from the wall.
We chose clear acrylic for its aesthetic qualities, as well as its light weight and impact resistance. The material is a substantial 3/8" thick and the edges have been polished for a clean, refined look. We print directly to the reverse side, which helps protect the image from abrasion. As with all acrylic products it is very important to avoid contact with ammonia based cleaners. The ready-to-hang option includes holes at each corner and brushed stainless steel stand-off hardware to float the artwork about 1" from the wall.
Eco-friendly Sustainable Bamboo
The 100% bamboo panel is 1/2" thick and 3-ply to prevent warping. It is sustainably grown and harvested to ensure all the wonderful attributes associated with bamboo including strength, hardness, as well as natural resistance to moisture, mold, mildew and termites. We chose to keep the natural, blonde color of the wood so that the images would show up clearly. The edges have been sanded to produce a clean refined look; although, as with all natural products there are unique characteristics inherent to each piece. The ready-to-hang option includes an aluminum frame fastened to the reverse to float the artwork about 1" from the wall and accepts standard security hardware.
Glossy Laminate on Acrylic
We print a giclée on film and face mount it seamlessly to a 1/4" acrylic panel for an extremely vibrant, glossy finished artwork. The result is lightweight yet sturdy with edges that are polished for a clean and refined look. Our ready-to-hang option includes a hidden aluminum frame bonded to the reverse with architectural grade adhesive to float the artwork about 1" from the wall. As with all acrylic products it is important to avoid contact with ammonia based cleaners (e.g. Windex). To protect your artwork for it's maximum lifespan, please keep it out of direct sunlight and clean with a soft, dry cloth.

Custom Options For Your Giclée Artwork
Two recommended sizes are offered for each limited and open edition giclée. All pieces on canvas and paper may be resized with proportions accurate to the original piece free of charge. While we are able to offer very large, mural size canvas and paper, the size is sometimes subject to the size of the original art. Please call your sales representative to discuss sizing that is right for your wall space. Luxe Editions on alternative substrates are only available in the specific stated sizes.
Fine art paper, photo gloss paper and canvas are just a few of our substrate options. Most artwork is also available as Luxe Editions on clear acrylic,
sustainable bamboo or brushed aluminum.
Our staff of artisans are trained to hand apply clear, brushstroke texture to any canvas print.

Caring For Your Artwork
Although Studio EL giclée and Luxe Edition artworks are durable and have UV resistant chemicals in the inks, it is important to respectfully care for them. Keep your artwork out of direct sunlight to avoid fading and increase its lifespan. Never clean with liquids or other cleaning products. If cleaning is needed use a soft, dry cloth or feather duster to avoid damaging your artwork. When framing, use UV protected glass or Plexiglas and acid-free archival materials for all matboards, mounting, backing and spacers.
