Lambda Prints on
Satin Fuji Crystal Archival Paper 152gsm
None of the photographs are signed on the image but are accompanied by a Limited Edition Certificate, which can be attached to the back of the print or the eventual frame. Both the lithograph and the silk screen are signed in pencil at the bottom of the image.
The giclée process starts in the same way as off-set litho, in that the original is scanned using a very high definition laser scanner. Instead of making plates, the information is fed into a computer and the image is printed using a very high quality, large format inkjet printer called an iris printer - hence the name giclée which is French for 'to squirt'.
New non-fading archival inks, combined with the ability to print onto acid free hot pressed watercolour paper, similar to the paper used for the original work, produces a superb quality print virtually indistinguishable from the original.
Louise’s prints are in limited editions of 50, and are signed. Price is as marked below the image.
No prints are mounted. Large prints are sent rolled in acid free tissue paper, in a cardboard tube. Small prints are sent flat in reinforced envelopes. P&P is extra.
