What is a "Direct to Metal Giclee Print?
These aluminum prints are the most colorfully vibrant representations of my original paintings. The unique print process produces stunning images that give off an almost backlit kind of luminescence. The sleek, float-mounted presentation has a modern, professional look with fine art quality and a UV protection laminate finish.
While this print process is more expensive, each piece does come ready to hang and it's cost approximates that of a custom-framed and matted paper giclee print.
As with all lamination processes, small, crackle-like features may be noticeable on extremely close examination of this UV protected surface. These areas, if discovered at all, do not diminish the polished, glass-like appearance of the artwork.

Please feel free to use the contact form to inquire about a special request.
