Saying "Giclee!" isn't enough. They need to specify exactly what kind of process was used and what we're paying $175 for.
Dude, get a grip. It's not a rip-off. How would you like it if someone starts talking shit on your vastly expensive (maybe overpriced?) keyboards you're trying to hawk?
DREW FRIEDMAN fine art prints are produced by digital media specialist/archivist Barbara Economon with state-of-the-art technology. Prints are meticulously crafted and painstakingly replicated from high-resolution scans of the the original art. All elements of the artist's work are retained.
The unframed prints are issued on heavyweight (310g) mould-made William Turner stock, a natural white, 100% rag paper with a fine toothy surface manufactured by Hahnemühle (est. 1584), who are renowned for premium-grade archival papers. Our editions are produced on an Epson 3800Pro large format printer using Epson UltraChrome K3 Pigment Ink Technology, resulting in brilliant, velvety color and offering excellent longevity and durability.
All prints are issued on untrimmed sheets, with at least a one-inch border on all sides to allow for proper matting. Each edition print is personally approved and hand-signed (and, where applicable, -titled) by the artist. Edition numbers are handwritten and usually applied by the printmaker. New works are launched with the lowest edition number (e.g., 1/25), with subsequent numbers sold in sequence; the highest number (e.g., 25/25) is sold last.
Due to the fine art print's higher-resolution process, as well as superior paper, inks, and quality control, the colors in the print appear brighter, crisper, and more vibrant than the online image. Online color appearance may vary slightly depending on your monitor settings.
