About the Prints
These are ‘ Limited Edition ’ Archival Inkjet ( Giclee ) prints of original artwork created and printed by the artist to industry standards. The print runs are clearly marked as tradition dictates in the bottom left corner, then follows the ‘title’ in the centre, and my signature and the date on the bottom right corner.
I date my Giclee Prints by the month and year of their individual creation. Unlike old lithographic print runs Giclee prints are each created individually on superior modern archival stocks , and therefore, although it is traditional to only mark the year of the original artwork, I feel strongly that it would be disingenuous to ‘back date’ prints. As my prints are all made individually dating them in this way offers them a chronology and more specific date which I feel makes each individual print more honest and unique. Specific details of the Original works are included in full on the Certificates of Authenticity.
I provide a signed Certificate of Authenticity with all my Giclee Prints which offer full details relating to the print including the date and media with which I created the original artwork. I have often admired other artists work in various places and been frustrated being unable to decipher the signature or ascertain any details about the piece and so unable to research them. A simple note declaring the title and any other details seems a simple thing but would be absolute ‘ treasure ’ to me in these instances ! The certificate is then placed in an archival protective sleeve ready to be securely fixed to the reverse of the final frame.
The Giclee Prints are created using Epson Ultrachrome K3 pigment based UV stable Archival Inks on a professional Epson Large Format Printer.
The paper stock is the outstanding Hahnemühle 350gsm 100% cotton ‘Museum Etching’ Archival Fine Art Paper.
The prints are all additionally given the recommended Hahnemühle Fine Art Print invisible protective coating before being examined in detail , passed , editioned and signed by the Artist .
The Prints are all 100% Conservation Grade ‘ Full Envelope Mounted ‘ ( single or double front mounts and full ‘same as mount’ backing boards to fully enclose and protect the print from any potential contaminants on all sides) using Slater Harrison 1200, 2000 & 3000 micron Soft White Conservation acid and contaminant free Boards. For any other specific details please don't hesitate to contact the artist.
