Giclee (from the French verb ‘gicler’ to squirt or spray) produces prints which are renowned for their superfine resolution, brilliant colour, and attention to detail.
To ensure exceptional archival value, photographs are printed on Epson Enhanced Matte paper with 76 -100 years longevity (dependent on the environment), using Ultra-Chrome K3 inks on an Epson Stylus Pro 9800 ink-jet printer.
Although framing requirements are individual it is recommended that white mount board and preferably white or silver frames are used together with 2mm non-reflective UV inhibiting glass, to enhance the overall effect, in keeping with the clean, concise, abstract quality of these images.
Prints should never be glued directly onto the backing board. They are either taped to the reverse side of 100% acid free mounting board or suspended on archival clips. These clips are hinged onto the backing board of the frame using a minimal amount of archival glue which allows the artwork to be floated between the glass and the backing board, guaranteeing the protection of the print.
Recommended image size of A2 (approx. 420mm x 600mm) is matted to a finished size of 680mm x 840mm. All matting and backing boards are acid free archival stock.
Larger sizes are available on request and may require rescanning and retouching, (if produced from pre- digital originals) as well as printing and matting, necessarily increasing lead times.
As images are printed on order to ensure longevity, allow 14 days for processing and delivery.
Fully framed and glazed or matted prints may be supplied within the Cape Town area only. Unmounted prints rolled, in cardboard postage tubes are available to be shipped locally or internationally.
Specific print dimensions and edition sizes are indicated on each image. Suggested retail prices are based on edition size and individual print size.
Private commissions are undertaken within the photographers field of work.
