Limited edition screen prints are hand-printed in an art print studio. The image is first separated into many colours, which, when printed one on top of the other, will create the complete image. Each layer is printed through a stencil, on a silk, or synthetic fabric mesh, stretched onto a large frame, hence the name screen-print, or silk-screen. A print can have 25 colours or more. The colours achieved in screen-printing are vibrant and saturated, and the image is printed on acid-free art paper, signed and numbered by the artist.
Limited Edition Giclée Prints
Giclée (pronounced Jik-Lay) is a modern fine art printing method. An image is digitised and meticulously enhanced to faithfully reproduce the original. It creates vibrant, colour-fast, individually printed, limited edition prints. Printed on acid free watercolour paper, which allows high saturation of colours. This method is now setting the standard in low volume limited editions. The prints are signed and numbered by the artist.
