LIMITED EDITION GICLEES
Hand-Signed and Numbered by Jane Loveall


WHAT IS A GICLEE?

• Giclee (Zhee-Clay) is a french word that means “spray.”
• Original artwork is scanned and printed using professional ink-jet printers that spray archival ink onto high quality paper or canvas.
• A Giclee is the closest reproduction of an original artwork that is currently possible.
• Giclees can be found in many museums around the world.

 
WHAT IS A LIMITED EDITION?

There are two types of editions for artwork reproductions – open editions (95% of my work) and limited editions. With the former, the artist may make an unlimited number of reproductions from an original. With the latter, the artist chooses to produce a small number of reproductions, usually between 10 and 250 although much larger limited editions are available. Limited edition reproductions are usually hand-signed and numbered by the artist whereas open edition reproductions are usually not signed. Due to limited supply, a limited edition of an artwork would be more valuable than an open edition of the same artwork.  My edition sizes range from 50 to 250. 


HIGH QUALITY LIMITED EDITION GICLEES FROM JANE LOVEALL

The quality of Giclees can vary significantly.
• My Giclees are the highest quality currently available and are produced by a professional Giclee printmaker that specializes in Giclee printing.
• My printmaker scans my original artwork using the Better Light System, a State-of-the-Art professional scanning system superior to flatbed scanners. (For more information about how this system works, visit www.betterlight.com).
• Then, my printmaker prints the image using professional Epson and Canon printers with six and eight color archival pigmented inking systems, respectively.
• I use Breathing Color Fine Art Paper, a premium quality paper.
I personnally verify the quality of each giclee before it is shipped.
