Fine Art prints on canvas are gorgeous.
They are vibrant, textured and don't require framing or glass making them affordable with no 'glare'.
The response from our clients and those exploring our work has been amazing. When they see the texture, color and feel of the images it is nothing short of exciting.
One of the comments we hear most is that our images are like being there and how much they are enjoyed throughout the year while away from Hawaii.
When you take gorgeous, clear, colorful photographic images and print them on canvas you get a look and feel of a traditional painting, but even more stunning. What's the craze about this Gicle'e thing? First it's pronounced 'Gee'-'Clay' and it's a made up word. To see a full definiton you can check out WikiPedia's listing here at wiki, but in essence it is a term used to describe the process of 'spraying/printing ink on canvas or paper'.
Gicle'e prints are exploding in popularity, and for good reason. They offer the ability to put stunning, vibrant photographic images on traditional canvas to create a rich, texture and painting feel with even more beautiful scenes. You will get it when you see them in real life, good ones that is, and we've got them :) The process allows for printing photographs on an amazing array of media as well as canvas.
With our high quality, sharp images you will enjoy clarity and detail only mother nature can provide. Wait until you see these in real life! They are even better than what you can experience from this website.
Fine Art Giclee's are beautiful, clear, vibrant photographs, printed on canvas and wrapped tight around archival coated bars look fabulous. We use extra thick 1.75" stretcher bars and you'll appreciate how they stand out. We have the ability to frame the nicest of art and can do everything from a beautiful, yet econical floating frame or simple museum gallery wrap or we can produce the Koa frames with cloth wrapped fillets and an amazing dropped shadow feel. Canvas comes in many ways and provides a painting like feel to photographs.
The Fine Art printers we use at Window To Paradise make beautiful prints with detail and quality that is simply astounding. The canvas is then sprayed with a uv resistent coating to further lengthen life. We apply three coats to fully protect your art work.
"Gallery Wrap" is that great looking presentation of fine art where the canvas is stretched around specially coated and designed stretcher bars and hung on the wall without glass or any additional frame.
We have the ability to print on a large variety of papers, canvas and other media. The most popular by far is the Gallery Wrapped, Fine Art Giclee prints which is the name of the process to print ink on specially treated, acid free, museum quality canvas.
The inks we use are made from real pigment ink, the same as used by the classic painters such as Rembrandt and Van Gogh. We use Gesso coated 100 year archival rates bars with stainless steel staples and hanging hardware.
Canvas Giclee prints do not require the normal layer of glass to protect the image from fading. Instead, we use an environmentally friendly, super coating that locks in the ink and protects it from the Sun's UV rays and moisture as well.
Your fine art giclee canvas from Window To Paradise is produced with the highest quality archival inks and a fierce dedication to excellence. We do all canvas prints in-house to ensure it's done right, every time. We stretch each piece on a custom built frame and hand stretch them so the edges of the mirror gallery wrap will match the edge of the frame. The corners will be tight and beautiful, the back is covered with foam core and professional. We use stainless steel staples and hardware to prevent rusting in tropical salt air environments.
Can't decide what is the perfect size for your chosen wall? We will 'mock up' your favorite image in your space so you can be sure you pick the right dimensions for your room. Nothing beats seeing a piece visually in your chosen space. All it takes is a snap shot of your space and we will do the rest! We provide mock ups free of charge for orders over $500.
With Mark's professional expertise in real estate photography, you will be amazed at how he can prepare your snapshot for receiving a mock up. So realistic and ensures you get the 'look' you are after. It is helpful to send images that include the entire wall and any furniture in the room for a greater sense of how the space will feel with the proposed artwork.
If you can't get the whole room in the picture, don't worry, multiple images can be stitched and made into one seamless image in our digital 'darkroom' for a good representative 'mock-up'.
Please include measurements from floor to ceiling and a couple lengths of furniture in the photograph and we'll use special measurement software to provide accurate measurements and options for your fine art giclee. We will provide you with several choices so you are sure to love your new space!
