ART REPRODUCTIONS EXPLAINED
What is the difference between an art print, canvas print & what is a giclee?
Art prints are reproductions of an original artwork on high quality archival fine art paper with high quality ink. This means that the paper is acid free and will not turn brown. The original artwork is photographed and reproduced with printer placing tiny little dots of ink to reproduce the painting. This process is called ‘giclee’ (a french word meaning ‘squirt’ or ‘spurt.’ This same process can also be reproduced on stretched canvas. Gallery wrapped means that the picture wraps around the sides of the painting. If you have any other questions, please feel free to reach out to us at email@example.com

WHAT IS THE PROCESS FOR COMMISSIONING A CUSTOM ARTWORK?
- We will set up an appointment to discuss what you are wanting – the colors, size, subject matter, materials, etc.
- I will present a quote for client approval including the timeframe.
- Once the quote is approved, based upon our discussion I will present a sketch (for art with a subject matter) or a small painted thumbnail (for abstract artwork) – for client’s approval. This may result in 1-3 sketches/thumbnail per piece.
- Once the sketch/small painting thumbnail is approved by the client, the client will send a 50% deposit to initiate the work of the custom piece(s).
- Upon completion, a final photo of the artwork will be sent to the client. Once approval is made, the remaining balance is due
to initiate the shipping/delivery of the artwork.

Each countryhas its own regulations for importing items and we are happy to discuss any concerns you may have. Any customs, duty and VAT fees upon arrival at the destination will be the responsibility of the recipient. Other items may/may not be available internationally.
