This is that one-of-a-kind personalized gift; one that is gorgeous and interesting. This type of art work is actually known in the art world as a Giclee or art print, but unlike prints sold on paper or framed under glass, the larger canvas print, is actually printed on artist’s canvas. This gives it a more elegant look; it has an authentic artistic painting quality.

Why Large Canvas Prints?

These prints make a real statement. They stand out in the room and are often images divided among Three or more large canvas pieces; giving them that modern split image look. They make an incredible addition to any home. It is this type of printed canvas that brings the décor of any room together.

What Type of Giclee Should You Get?

As this is a gift, you really need to be careful in choosing the right type of art work. Giclees come in all styles.
