What types of open edition prints and frames does Saatchi Art offer?

See below for information about the print and frame options offered by Saatchi Art: Canvas, Fine Art, and Photo Gallery Paper.

Canvas Prints
 
Our canvas prints are museum grade Giclée reproductions. Every Saatchi Art canvas is matte textured (20.5 mil), bright white, poly-cotton blend with no additives and no agents. The Giclée ink jet receptor is specifically designed for the reproduction of acrylic and oil based pigments. We use state-of-the-art digital “droplet on demand” archival quality pigmented ink technology, capable of reproducing more than 36,000,000 unique possible colors. Our kiln dried, knot free, finger jointed wood stretcher bars are hand cut and assembled to Saatchi’s thirty standard sizes. All of our wood comes from renewable forests, for a planet-friendly art reproduction. Our canvases are affixed to the stretcher bars using a patent pending “Sure Grip” process. The unique rubber washer provides an even, expandable tension, which allows the canvas to breath, avoiding “canvas wrinkling.” They arrive to the collector stretched and ready to hang or frame. Each canvas is coated with a UV protective layer designed specifically for our canvas and ink, protecting from scratches and sunlight.

Optional Frame
Framed canvas prints come with a black wrap for a seamless look. They are gallery wrapped on 1.25” deep stretcher bars made of 100% renewable kiln-dried, knot-free, finger-jointed wood.
