Open Edition Prints
My Unlimited (Poster) Prints are a great inexpensive alternative to my Limited Editions. A selection are currently available at Kura Galleries KURA GALLERY, Auckland and Wellington. Please enquire with KURA staff about what prints are available.
Limited Edition Prints
My Giclee Prints are printed on A2 308gsm premium museum quality photographic paper, specifically designed for fine art work. It is made from 100% cotton that is acid, lignin and chlorine free with a PH buffering which makes the paper more durable. It features a coating that has been optimised for Epson UltraChrome pigment Inks and has a natural white surface that does not contain any optical brighteners. Giclee is a term used when referring to digital printing by an inkjet printer.
Each Edition is usually limited to 5 - 10 prints only, with the exception of a few artworks being 15. Each Print comes with a certificate of authenticity which has details of the print - the date it was printed, the edition number, and a special serial number which I keep on record. When posting, the Print is loosely rolled in a 215mm x 550mm x 215mm box.
Please contact me if you wish to know more about my prints - email@example.com
Caring for your Print
Do not attempt to touch your print at any time, especially with your fingers as oil residue will likely damage and stain the ink.
Cockling is a term used when paper becomes wavy or a rippling pattern emerges. This is caused by humidity or exposure to moisture which expands the paper and then dehydration contracts it. Cotton rag is susceptible to this occurrence because of its natural fibrous properties, therefore take extra care to place this type of print preferably in a humidity free environment.
Harsh lighting with ultraviolet radiation can also cause damage by way of fading and yellowing. Fluorescent and sun light are the most harmful. Please place the artwork so that the most direct morning or afternoon light is avoided.

The printer I use is an Epson Stylus Pro 3880 A2 printer. Although quite slow (takes about 8 minutes per print) it produces amazing rich vibrant colours.
