How accurate are the dimensions listed for the artwork?
We verify dimensions of every piece of art put on our site. They should be accurate within a ½ inch. If you require greater accuracy, please contact us.
Please note that our dimensions are to the outside perimeter of the print, which almost always includes white area surrounding the image. The white border is necessary for framing. In rare cases, we only show the image area but this is clearly noted.

What is a Lithograph?
Offset lithography has been the standard for quality art reproduction for decades. The process involves multiple steps from original image to printed reproduction. These steps include photography, laser scanning, color separations, plate-making and printing. The greater number of plates used for each color give the artist greater control over the finished print.
What is a Giclée?
A French word pronounced jhee-clay. Also known as ink jet printing, images are high resolution digital scans printed with archival quality prints. On paper, the inks are actually absorbed slightly and blend to create fine art reproductions that are often indistinguishable from the originals. On canvas, the process yields prints of stunning vibrancy and realism.
The luminosity of Giclée printmaking represents the artist’s original work better than any reproduction technique available today.
