Giclee Prints- Finally!

It's taken me quite awhile, but I finally had some giclee prints done of some of my paintings. A giclee print is a fine art print done on heavyweight matte paper (a watercolor type paper). I only had a few ordered in 5x7 just to check out the quality, and let me just say, my jaw dropped. These are stunning. And I can't even take any of the credit for them, since they are outsourced to a fine art printing company. They look like actual paintings, like full blown richly colored watercolors. They are more expensive than my regular digital prints, but they fill the gap between the original painting and my affordable digital prints. They have the little lines on the borders in case you wish to have them professionally framed/matted, or if you're like me, I would just buy a regular frame and plunk it in. They will be titled, signed, and dated on the front in pencil and as I mentioned, I only have a few, but I will put them into my etsy shop later today and I will be ordering more over the next couple of weeks.

    They are beautiful! I make giclee prints of my watercolor paintings. I use a watercolor paper that is specially made to be used with printer. They come out so well that it's hard to tell the difference between the original and the print!

    I wish you all the best and may you sell out quickly!

  2. Janet,
    They're beautiful! Hope you sell out…Can you share what company you use?

  3. Saw these prints yesterday and they are stunning! I will be starting a collection of these as it is so difficult to get the originals and they will be the next best thing.
