The Giclée Process

The term c (zhee-clay) comes from a French word, gicleur, meaning "to squirt, spurt or spray." In the giclée process a fine stream of ink, more than four million droplets per second, is sprayed onto archival art paper or canvas. The printer provides professional workmanship to obtain a high quality image that retains minute detail, and subtle tints and blends. UV light protective coatings cover the fade-resistant ink.

The images very closely resemble the original paintings. Each print is personally signed and numbered by the artist and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity. When the last print in the edition is sold, the edition will be closed. All images are available unframed.

Some of the prints in the Joan Hansen Art Collection are available on either acid free watercolor paper or canvas. Others are available only on watercolor paper. There are two types of stretcher bars to choose from for the canvas prints: the heavy stretcher bars allow you to hang the print without framing it. The smaller stretcher bars provide you with an image suitable for framing.

The artist reserves the right to use these images, or portions thereof, on other products and/or on different substrates, and to use new printing technologies as they become available.

Because each image is printed when the order is received, please allow two weeks for delivery. The artist will select the best shipping method.
