INFO & SIZING
All prints here are Giclee prints. Pronounced as zhee'clay, it's a French word, meaning to spray.
They are printed on an inkjet printer (which 'sprays' ink, hence the name), instead of a digital printer. They also use 12 pigment-based inks instead of 4 dye-based inks of digital printers, so the color reproduction is precise.
Giclee prints are the highest quality archival prints available.

Adding a mat around your artwork is a cost-effective way to increase the overall size of your framed print!
Light-colored mats can make your subject appear larger, and dark mats draw your eye inward, making the picture seem smaller. Neutral colors, like ivory and white are often great choices, as they will work with most styles of room decor too.

Original art framing
Please note that colored pencil originals are delicate and should not be hung in direct sunlight or in humid places such as bathrooms and kitchens. UV glass frames add an extra level or protection and are a great choice for original artwork.
