Prints and Giclées
Prints are currently sold without mats or backing.
Prints are on matte archival paper and can be framed as you desire. Giclées are on Somerset Velvet archival paper mounted to a wooden panel with a profile of about 1″ thick. This gives a similar look to my original paintings which are painted on a similar surface. This type of giclee can either be hung as is, or framed. Minor cropping may occur depending on the size, but should not be noticeable. Giclée (zhee-clay) describes the reproduction method used to create fine art prints. This method is the most effective for reproducing color. It is a French word meaning sprayed ink.
Currently, I am shipping on Tuesdays via USPS for all orders placed and payment received by 12 noon CST on Sundays. Original pieces are typically within my possession, and will be shipped as per the schedule above. Please be advised that prints and giclees are printed when ordered. Please allow 3-4 weeks for delivery of your order. If time is of the essence, and you need them much sooner, please contact me, and I will be happy to see what can be done, and for what fee.
Items sold on this site are for decorative use only. Original pieces are prepared for hanging unless “unframed” is specified in the description. Appropriate hanging hardware is required and the responsibility of the owner of the piece. I am not able to advise you on what would be best for your situation. I trust that all pieces will arrive in excellent condition. However, if this is not the case, please contact me. Returns will be accepted within 14 days, if I have made an error on your order. Please contact me with any questions you have prior to your order so that I can provide you with the best experience possible.
There is no return or refund on custom or commissioned pieces. Prices are determined based on the size of your project, and prints/giclees can be made available if desired. A non-refundable deposit is required of 50% prior to beginning your piece, with the remainder due upon completion. Please contact me about having me create a custom piece just for you. Each commissioned piece will have a Certificate of Authenticity to guarantee the provenance.
Certificates of Authenticity
A Certificate of Authenticity will be included with all original and giclee pieces. Limited edition giclees will be hand signed and numbered, numbering also noted on the certificates.
I hope that you greatly enjoy owning and displaying artwork by Alice Arlene.
