ABOUT FINE ART REPRODUCTIONS

Some of the key differences between fine art reproduction and cheaper methods become more prominent as time passes. Using museum standard productions ensures your investment will be in the family for generations to come.

GICLEE PRINTING

The term  "Giclee print" connotes an elevation in printmaking technology. Images are generated from high resolution digital scans and printed with archival quality inks onto various substrates including canvas, fine art, and photo-base paper. The Giclee printing process provides better colour accuracy than other means of reproduction. Archival quality ensures that the prints are light-fast and non water soluble.

ARCHIVABLE COTTON RAG PAPER & CANVAS

100% cotton rag papers coated with a natural white layer for the reproduction of fine art. The surface colour and texture is consistant with that of the original artist materials. GMS distributes a range of textures from the more subtle types to the highly textured cold pressed varieties.These 100% cotton rag papers are all acid free and archival, some are pH buffered for additional protection against attack from acidic air pollutants.

ARCHIVABLE STANDARD WITH PROTECTIVE COATING

The term archival stems from a branch of work which involves caring for artworks called conservation, and every major museum and gallery has it’s own conservation department. Conservators will clean and repair the artworks of the gallery, create management plans, stay up to date on current practices, carry out their own research and keep their gallery/museum up to standard in many things from types of lights used to the temperature of the air
