FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS – ART PRINTS
What is a Giclee Art Print?
A giclee art print is produced using inkjet printing. We use the highest quality of printing and the finest archival acid free products to ensure your art’s integrity is maintained.
Besides its original association with Iris prints, the word giclée has come to be associated with other types of inkjet printing including processes that use fade-resistant, archival inks (pigment-based), and archival substrates primarily produced on Canon, Epson, HP and other large-format printers. These printers use the CMYK colour process. This increases the apparent resolution and color gamut and allows smoother gradient transitions. A wide variety of substrates is available, including various textures and finishes such as matte photo paper, watercolor paper, cotton canvas, or artist textured vinyl.
What is a limited edition?
The artist Tory Burke produces only one oil painting of a particular design. We produce only a limited number of prints for each piece of art.
Please refer to each individual piece of work to see the limited number of prints.
Note, each print will be registered with Studio Elwood and uniquely signed by the artist and numbered to preserve the limited edition nature.
Why do I need an account with Studio Elwood?
It makes the ordering process easier and faster as your information is stored on our secure servers! You can even look up previous orders to check which items you purchased last time.
What is the minimum order?
The minimum order is one (1) print for each product. However if you order more the shipping will most likely be more cost effective. Please contact us for more information on minimum orders for wholesale prices.
