Giclee Unlimited Poster Prints
My Giclee poster prints are a great inexpensive alternative to my Limited Editions. These are open edition prints. Please be aware though, that due to the way I operate, and whether I have the materials, paper stock available, or even the time, I seldom do print requests.
The paper I use for my Posters is a 192gsm quality heavyweight media. Specifically for fine art printing and display posters, it produces sharp detailed images with high colour saturation. It has a flat matte finish with a bright white base that produces great highlights and tones. Printed on A2 size paper only, unlimited and signed, my posters are rolled in acid free paper and placed inside a 100mm diameter mailing tube.
At the moment some of my Poster Prints can be purchased at KURA GALLERY, Auckland and Wellington. Please enquire with KURA staff about what prints are available.
Giclee Limited Edition Prints
Giclee is an art term used for a process which combines pigment based inks with high quality archival paper. In other words - fine art digital printing.
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 brightners.
Each Edtion is ususally 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 loosley rolled in a 215mm x 500mm x 215mm box.

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.
Here's Epson's description of this great printer... Epson UltraChrome K3 with Vivid Magenta Ink Technology is a professional, 8-color ink set with advanced magenta pigments that provide more dramatic blues and violets for an impressive color gamut. Its three-level black technology delivers richer blacks, outstanding tonal range and an unprecedented gray balance, all of which ensure outstanding black-and-white prints. Built on Epson's heritage of professional ink technology, this pigment ink set offers instant color stability. Colors stay consistent, whether viewed right out of the printer or decades later. With Epson UltraChrome K3 with Vivid Magenta, you get print quality and longevity that satisfies the most demanding professional.
