supplied with rough cut 1/4” borders. If you require larger borders (for matting or stretching,
or for w additional charges may apply. Please let us know your exact requirements when we

EMBELLISHING / ENHANCING YOUR GICLEE
Prints can be embellished carefully with suitable materials. (on watercolor papers, use watercolor paints, pastels, or charcoals - on canvas use acrylic paints, acrylic lacquers or pigment
markers. We recommend keeping the media as dry as possible, and testing on scrap media
first to ensure compatibility with your materials & techniques. Our inks are permanent, and
will not bleed or run on most papers.
CARING FOR YOUR GICLEE PRINT
Giclee prints should be treated as you would treat an original work of art to maximize their
life-span. Avoid touching the surface of your print. Oils and contaminates on your skin will
shorten the life of your print. Do not expose to high humidity, chemicals, or direct sunlight. If
long-term dark storage is necessary, store prints flat in a dry acid-free environment at room
temperature.
WATERCOLOR & FINE ART PAPERS
Uncoated watercolor and fine-art papers should be framed behind glass, and should not be
touched if at all possible. UV coated papers are more durable, and can be framed without
glass. Care should still be taken when handling to prevent scuffs or scratches
CANVAS - UNCOATED
Uncoated canvas can be framed without glass for short to medium term use. Dust using
a feather-duster or soft cloth. If print is exposed to moisture, blot visibly wet areas carefully
with a clean lint free cloth, and lay flat to dry. Though the image will not run if exposed to
water, the surface will damage if rubbed. For long term archival performance UV coating is
required. Care should be taken when handling the print.
CANVAS - UV COATED
Optima MXE coated canvas is extremely durable, water and stain repellent, and suitable for
framing without glass. The more durable surface makes this easyer to handle.

“Giclee” is a term, derived from a French
word meaning “to spray ink”, that refers to
digital printing on fine art media. Within the
industry there is a huge variation in the quality and longevity of “giclee” prints, depending on the equipment, media, and care taken to produce your final print. We use three
different printer and ink-set combinations on
a range of fine-art media to produce simply
exceptional, archival, giclee printing.
