ABOUT THE GICLEE PRINTS

Fine art prints are museum quality, original, and hand signed by Michele Zualek. Each original piece of art is reproduced with a professional giclée equipment, utilizing only the finest archival materials and inks. This quality of giclée print is commonly used in museums, art galleries, and photographic collections. Giclée printing is known to be the best quality printing around. The giclée prints are preferred by the galleries and museums for their exceptional longevity and richness of colors. The paper is acid-free and extremely age resistant. Frames are not included as they are for presentation purposes only. Please contact me regarding availability of prints.
