About Art Prints & Lithographs

Q What is a Giclée?
From the French word meaning "spray of ink", a Giclee is a print created by using state of the art computer technology to reproduce images. By printing the image on media much like that used for the original usually either canvas or high-quality paper a piece of artwork stunningly similar to the original is created. Giclees are shipped rolled.
Q. What is a Lithograph?
Based on the principle that oil and water repel, a Lithograph is created when an artist produces an oil-based or pen image on a stone or piece of metal. This surface is then moistened and covered with an oil-based ink. The resulting chemical reaction between the oil and water drives away the ink on the surface except where the drawing was first done. Fine quality paper is then placed against the surface and a lithographic press is used to create the print. Modern technology and processes have provided artists with many unique methods with which to create magnificent lithographs. All of Belinda's litho's are signed and numbered in editions of 1000.
Q. What is a Fine Art Print?
Fine art prints are reproductions in archiva inks on archival paper. The 8 X 10 images are in an 11 X 14 matte while the 11 X 14 prints are in a 16 X 20 matte. The prints are matted in a plastic sleeve.
