Giclée on canvas

(Pronounced Jee-Clay)

Before framing, a Giclée on canvas is carefully checked to ensure that it is in perfect condition. It will then be given two coats of protective varnish. It is checked again, and finally signed and numbered by the artist on the reverse.

The Giclée is then Carefully framed in our own studio.

  1. The Giclée on canvas is firstly stretched just like an original oil painting using wooden stretcher pieces.

  2. The stretched canvas is then set directly into a handmade frame. The frame has been carefully selected to compliment the picture. We feel that it looks almost like an original oil painting.
If you are ordering a Giclée rolled, then your framer should be able to carry out the above with no problems. However, if you have any problems obtaining items such as 'stretcher bars' we are able to supply them separately. Please contact the studio and we will arrange for them to be sent to you.
