GICLEE WALL ART (PRINT)
Enjoyart features giclee (pronounced zhee-klay) prints on canvas or paper. The French word giclee means a spray of liquid (or ink). Giclee printmaking is an art in itself and boasts superior color accuracy and detail when compared to other art reproductions. Fine art quality images are produced from high resolution digital scans and printed using professional ink jet printers and archival quality inks. Various substrates are used and giclees can be printed on acid free fine art paper, cotton rag paper, photographic paper and canvas. Each giclee print is produced one at a time and affords great attention to detail. Because giclee print making is not a mass production, many artists today prefer this technique for reproducing their paintings and photography as both open and limited edition prints.
Giclee prints are often offered as "on-demand" meaning the image is made to order. The prints can be easily resized and printed to custom specs, another advantage over the lithograph and silkscreen printing methods. Fine art giclee prints are commonly found in museums and galleries around the world and are a wonderful way of reproducing and displaying otherwise irreplaceable and priceless works of art. Enjoyart now offers your own images or photos printed as giclees on canvas. We also specialize in giant oversized art posters and oversized canvas wall art.
STRETCHED CANVAS AND CANVAS PRINTS
Most of the images on Enjoyart.com are available as paper or canvas giclee prints. The canvas can be ordered as an "on canvas" print or "stretched canvas". The canvas print is a giclee print where the image is printed directly onto the canvas. It is not framed or stretched as is and is shipped rolled up inside of a tube. Once the canvas print has been received by the customer, it can be framed in a traditional manner or it can simply be stretched and hung with no additional frame. A canvas can be framed or stretched at almost any custom frame shop.
When a canvas is stretched, it is wrapped around a wooden frame and secured. Enjoyart stretched come in 2 options museum wrapped or gallery wrapped. The museum wrap means thats the entire image is seen from the front of the stretched canvas and the sides are either blank canvas or a solid color, most often black. A gallery wrap is where the image is wrapped around the sides of the canvas so that it appears to be "painted on" the frame. With a gallery wrap, there is no blank canvas or solid color sides. A stretched canvas is a finished product and can be hung on the wall, right out of the box. If desired, the stretched canvas can be framed, as well.
CUSTOM AND PERSONALIZED WOODEN SIGNS
Many of our images are available printed directly onto wood for a unique, ready to hang wall art. These wood art signs are made to look vintage or rustic and as if the images were actually hand painted onto the wood. Since they require no framing, they are a finished product that instantly adds to the decor of your home or office. The signs are made to order so that they can be printed with custom text for the customer, if desired.
For example, say a customer really likes the Customizable Coastal Art Sign with a little girl on the beach. The sign says "Monterey" across the bottom. The image is just what the customer is looking for but Monterey is not meaningful to them. They can change it to say "Pismo Beach" or "Cape May" or just about anything else they like. Some of the signs are especially perfect for gift giving and dedications and personalized wall art for kids is especially popular.
The "Born To Ski Sign", for example, features a baby in a cradle with some skis. The preview image includes a child's name and birthdate. A customer can have the name and birthdate of their special little boy or girl printed on the sign for a lovely personalized gift.
Wooden signs with quotes are popular pieces that can be inspirational or funny. Another great use for customized signs is to have the name of a business or restaurant printed on it. One might choose a nautical themed image and advertise their sail boat charters.
