Museum Quality Archival Giclees. Giclee (pronounced jee-clay) is French for "fine spray." It is a form of inkjet printing where microscopic droplets of ink are propelled at the paper. I make each giclee print personally with Epson archival pigmented inks on Epson archival papers with an Epson archival printer. The spray is so fine that the grain is comparable to film. Their longevity can surpass conventional photographic materials and they are rated at 200 years. Kodak C Paper is rated as 16 years, Ilfochrome at 29 years, Fuji Crystal Archive C Paper at 60 years, Iris at 32 years, and Roland at 125 years. In other words, the process I use sets a new standard for color print longevity. For the latest permanence ratings on these print media see http://www.wilhelm-research.com.

Print Size. Each print is on 13 x 19" paper. The image usually has one 11" side and the other side ranges from 11" to 17". I recommend 16 x 20" frames and offer several. Click here for more info on frames. Additional sizes are available on request.

Quality Control. I use a colorimeter and special software and software to be sure the colors in each print are exactly to my standards. I then personally inspect, hand sign, and stamp each with an embosser to assure you of its authenticity. Each print is accompanied by a signed certificate of authenticity.

Dated Open Editions. I am a populist. I believe original art should be affordable, and new technologies make it possible. So I don't limit editions of my prints. Rather than produce a large quantity of impressions in advance, I print them when they are ordered and I'll keep printing them until you stop ordering them. This approach also helps keep the price of original artwork affordable.

Satisfaction Guaranteed. I will refund 100% of the purchase price if you return a print within 30 days of the shipment date. Shipping and handling charges, however, are non-refundable.

No shipping charges. There is no charge for shipping in the US, Canada, or Mexico. Overseas customers, please contact me for pricing and shipping info. Express shipping is available upon request.

Shipping. Because I make each print when it is ordered, most items ship within a week. If I am traveling, it might take a bit longer. Framed prints are packaged sturdily so it is unlikely there will be damage. Unframed prints are shipped flat because tubes are too easily damaged. All shipments are insured. If there is any damage in shipment (so far there has not been) all you need to do is notify the shipper and me and I will send a replacement ASAP. No charge. Most orders ship via US Postal Service First Class Mail (aka Priority Mail).

Payment. For orders via fax, phone, email, and on my website I accept MasterCard, Visa, and PayPal. For mail order transactions I also accept checks and money orders. Sorry, I cannot accept COD orders.

Discounts. Quantity discounts are available upon request for five or more prints.

Return Policy. You may return an item for a refund or replacement within 30 days of the shipping date. Shipping and handling charges are non-refundable. To return a print, please contact me first for packaging and shipping instructions. You should insure your return. I cannot be responsible for lost or misdirected returns. If you paid for your order by credit card, a credit will be issued and will appear on your billing statement.

Questions. If you have any questions, please contact me.

The best way to view images on the internet

The left box above should be pure black, the right box pure white, and there should be distinct but subtle differences between the others. If not, adjust the brightness and contrast of your monitor. AOL Users: Some versions of AOL have an optional setting that compresses graphics for faster viewing also makes them blurry. To see images properly you should turn this off. Click "My AOL" at the top of the page, click "Preferences", click "www", click "Graphics", then uncheck "Use Compressed Graphics".
