Free shipping on orders of $100 or more

We offer free shipping on orders of $100 or more and a flat-rate shipping charge of $9.95 on orders less than $100.

Shipping artwork requires special packaging and attention. If you are ordering framed prints, canvas prints, or originals, we will add a surcharge to cover this extra packaging, delivery cost, and insurance, even if your order totals $100 or more.

As you can imagine, it is much more expensive to deliver a large, framed print than it is to deliver an unframed print on paper. We want your items to arrive in perfect condition, no matter their size. If your item requires a surcharge it will be noted on the product page as you make your selection, and in your shopping cart when you check out. Our surcharges are based on product weight and size, and reflect our actual costs to safely deliver your artwork.

If you’d like to pick up your order in Duluth or Grand Marais to save on shipping or surcharge fees, call 218-387-2491 and place your order by phone. We welcome all phone orders!

Questions? Call 218-387-2491. We’re here to help and available daily from 10am to 5:30pm (CST).

What is a giclee print?

What is a giclee print?

All prints are not created equal.

We sell only giclée prints—museum-quality, archival, fine art reproductions that will last a lifetime.

In the giclée process, original images created by an artist (paintings, hand-pulled prints, drawings, or other artwork) are carefully scanned and digitally stored in a computer and then sent to a special giclée printer for output onto 100% cotton paper or canvas substrate.

A giclée printer uses many more pigmented inks than a traditional offset printing press or a common digital printer. This creates a rich, beautiful print on paper or canvas.

A giclée printer uses many more colors than a traditional offset printing press or a common digital printer. Pronounced “jhee-CLAY,” this French word means “to spray,” which is exactly what a giclée ink jet printer does. A fine stream of pigmented ink (more than four million droplets per second) sprays onto archival paper or canvas. And because each image is sent to the printer individually, the process allows for versatility and experimentation with the hue, value and density of the inks.

Our Epson giclée printer outputs a Liz Sivertson print on archival paper.

Giclée prints will last decades or even hundreds of years, and are noted for their beautiful detail and dynamic color.

A giclée print is the closest an artist can get to matching their original artwork. For art lovers who want to collect fine art but can’t afford to buy an original, giclée prints are a popular (and beautiful!) alternative.
