The Giclee/Fine Art difference is stunning! Archival = generations of value. Giclee is what art collectors seek. Museum quality.
Prices are for not framed (some mounted & matted) fine art photographs, cheaper to ship 2 u and u can make your own framing & matting styles & color choices @ your local framer:
Archival: Materials of museum grade. Pigments which are light-fast. 100% cotton rag paper with neutral PH. Giclee Print: An individually produced, high-resolution, high-fidelity, reproduction done on a special large format printer using fade-resistant, archival pigment-based inks, often 10-12 colors, 100% cotton fine art archival paper, resulting in wonderful vibrant/saturated colors, smoother gradient transitions and a beautiful archival print that lasts for generations!
Gallery size prints (16x24 & 20x30).
Avoid exposure to direct sunlight or high humidity areas. Ask your framer to use archival materials for mounting & framing. Consider UV glass or acrylic to further protect your investment.
If cared for, these archival prints will outlast you & hopefully can be passed on as a family heirloom for generations to come.
