Catalogue - Limited Edition Prints

Back to main catalogue

 

This is a new service offered to increase the accessibility to Julie's work. Each edition is limited to 50 or 100 giclée prints on canvas, and each print is signed and numbered by the artist. The prints are not framed, but we can frame for a fee upon request. Currently available editions are shown below. Limited editions of a number of other paintings can be made upon request (conditions apply). Contact Alex or Julie if you wish to propose a new edition. For technical reasons we can only offer this service for paintings up to 18"x24" in size. Once we are confident we can guarantee the same high quality for larger prints, we will extend this service to larger paintings.

What are Limited Edition Prints?Number

Limited edition prints are a limited set of high quality reproductions of a work of art on an archival quality medium, signed and numbered by the artist. For a reproduction to be a limited edition print (as opposed to a poster, for instance), several conditions must be met:

 

What are Giclée Prints?

Giclée prints are digital prints made with a professional, high resolution inkjet printer. There are a number of differences between a giclée and a print from a regular deskjet printer:

Unlike hand drawn prints, a giclée edition is not limited by the nature of the printing process. The image exists in digital format, and can be reproduced indefinitely. Two things limit the number of prints made: the integrity of the artist, and the legally binding nature of a signed certificate of authenticity. By limiting an edition, artists promise that their prints will keep their value as collector's items. If the artist breaks that promise, they break the trust of their customers, and risk losing their reputation and being sued.

Sometimes limited edition prints are described as "original prints". This confusing terminology should be avoided unless the print is the work of art (e.g., a Dürer woodcut).

 

What are Julie's Prints?

Julie's prints are limited edition giclée prints on canvas. They are limited to 100 prints and 10 Artist's Proofs. What follows is a brief description of the production process.

The original painting is photographed with a digital camera. The digital image is then processed with a professional photo editor to remove lens distortions, improve the colour balance, etc. When the digital image is approved by the artist, a trial print is made. If the trial print does not meet the approval of the artist, the digital image is re-edited (or a new photograph is taken and edited), and offered for approval. A new trial print is made, and the process repeats itself until a trial print is approved. Discarded trial prints are not part of the limited edition (as they do not meet condition 1 listed under What is a Limited Edition Print), and may be recycled as multimedia projects. The prints that do meet approval of the artist are numbered and signed by hand by the artist, and sprayed with an acrylic coat protecting the print against moisture and ultraviolet light. Each print comes with a certificate of authenticity dated and signed by the artist.

While care has been taken to optimize durability and fading resistance of the prints, giclées should be treated with the same care as original paintings. This means that exposure to sources of ultraviolet light including direct sunlight should be avoided, as well as air pollutants, smoke, excessive moisture, etc.
