What is the difference between Open Run, Limited Edition, and Special Edition Fine Art Prints (Giclée)?
The main difference is the size, "Open Run" is the smallest, and "Special Edition" is the largest (please see the product details for the exact dimensions of each individual print). Both "Limited Edition" and "Special Edition" are unique in that only a finite number of prints will ever be produced, they will be signed and numbered by Samara Shuter.
What is the best way to care for my Fine Art Print (Giclée)?
Because of their sensitive and water soluble nature, digital prints require the highest level of care when handling and framing. White gloves should always be worn when working with prints; this prevents any natural oils on your skin from affecting the artwork’s integrity. Read our full Framing Guide here.
Please do not place the Fine Art Print face down on any object or surface to avoid damaging the printed image. This would also apply to placing objects on top of the artwork while it’s resting or in storage. Keep handling to a minimum during the hanging process and hold only form the sides.
We also recommend that you keep your Fine Art Print in a relatively controlled environment and that you do not hang your Fine Art Print in direct sunlight. Repeated exposure to extreme and/or sudden changes in humidity and/or temperature can have an adverse effect on the longevity of your artwork.
Please do not wash printed surfaces with water, damp cloths, or solvents. For cleaning we recommend using a clean dry soft cloth to gently wipe off dust and/or dirt. In most cases, we advise you seek professional assistance if you find there is an issue. Read our complete Care Instructions here.
