What is a giclée print?
Giclée printing is a high quality printing process used for gallery and exhibition work by artists. Your print will be created with a range of lightstable pigment inks which sit on the surface, not ink dye which absorbs and for this reason offers a superior surface colour and quality. Papers for giclée printing inks are acid free and resist perishing or staining by direct light sources.
All Emma Palmer Art prints are created on fine art grade papers designed for high performance, weight and luxury appearance.
Care of your Emma Palmer Art giclée print
To ensure you can enjoy your print at it’s best for long:
*Try to frame your print as soon as you are able to avoid damage and protect the printed surface. Keep your new giclée print covered with the acid-free tissue paper that it was posted with until it is framed. I would recommend that prints are framed with professional framers where possible.
*Avoid placing the work in areas of extreme temperature, humidity or light, including conservatories or above hot radiators. You may find that despite reasonable measures to protect against damage, distortion of the frame occurs as well as rippling or bleaching of the artwork inside.
*Giclée prints should be cared for in the same way as an original piece of art. This means that dirt, dust, moisture, oils, adhesives, solvents, heat, and anything that could scratch, dent or crease the paper should all be avoided when you are handling your print.
*Only handle the print with clean, dry hands as skin oils can stain the paper.
*Use two hands to support your print and hold it by the edges, that way it will not bend and you will avoid finger-smudges on the face of the print.
*Don’t use your hands to wipe off any dust as this can also damage the surface of your giclée print. Instead, use a dry, clean, white lint-free cloth or a photographer’s lens-brush.
Art on Canvas
Looking after your Emma Palmer Art on canvas
*Despite having a UV protective coating, I would recommend avoiding display of your canvas in areas of high concentrations of UV light or heat. This will undoubtedly extend the life of your Artwork and allow you to enjoy it at its best for many further years.
*Avoid hanging your canvas in damp or humid environments, as natural wooden frames may begin to warp and surface staining is also a risk.
*Canvas prints can be cleaned with a light feather duster. Solvents etc. should never be used. If anything marks your canvas or stains it, seek expert advice such as a fine art print framer.
To be aware of
The very nature of a natural product such as cotton canvas means that there will be imperfections (lumps and bumps) on the surface of the canvas caused by the variations in the cotton threads that make up the canvas. This is normal and a feature of cotton canvas. Likewise, any imperfections that you may see on a print are a feature of the original painting and as such a reflection of the nature of the painted surfaces of original paintings.
