Paper

Basics - a Giclée print made with high-quality archival inks on fine art paper using a high-resolution large format inkjet printer. 

Shipping - shipped flat or rolled.

Paper Details - Breathing Color Elegance Velvet, 100% Cotton, acid free, 310g, bright white color.

Wedding Display - substantial enough to lean on a supportive easel. May need to be secured to keep from bending or bowing slightly.

Size - measurements are the total paper size including a framing margin of 1"-1/2" (depending on size ordered).

What is it like? Similar to watercolor paper but a little softer, a substantial paper with a velvety texture. Closest consumer grade parallel is printmaking paper. In the artist's opinion, printing on paper is the best print quality. 

Signing - most fine point pens labeled archival and permanent will do, but make sure to try it out on scratch paper.

Home Display - requires framing. Printed on standard sizes so that ready-made frames may be used.

 Texture - velvety smooth

 

Pros: lovely luxe feeling (artist's preference), signing is straightforward, least expensive option

Cons: needs framing, special arrangement needed for display, needs protection during transport,  may be damaged by spilled wine or rain

Details - Breathing Color Elegance Velvet, 100% Cotton, acid free, 310g, bright white color, pressured mounted onto Gatorfoam black presentation board.

Wedding Display - thin and lightweight, but rigid. It will stand with minimal support and is light enough to use almost any easel. May need to be secured to keep from blowing away or being knocked over.

Size - measurements are the total paper size including a framing margin of 1"-1/2" (depending on size ordered).

What is it like? - the surface is subtly smoother than paper alone. It still has the watercolor feel with a little less velvet texture. It is very lightweight and doesn't bend. In the artist's opinion, printing on paper (whether mounted or unmounted) is the best print quality. 

Signing - most fine point pens labeled archival and permanent will do.

Home Display - requires framing. Printed on standard sizes so that ready-made frames may be used.

Size Recommendations

Font size is the determining factor for the size recommendations given for each design. The size recommendation is determined by using the combination of the Conservative with Lieberman clause in Hebrew and the Reform with Kids text in English, roughly 600 words total in both languages. Other texts combinations have roughly 500 words and may be ordered one size down.

Some designs will have fonts that are too small when ordered at the smallest available size to accommodate 2 language texts, others will have fonts that are too large if ordered at the largest size.

However, size preferences are very subjective. What is "too small" for one person, could be "too big" for another. If in doubt order the size you would prefer and ask for real size sample to print. If it is not suitable, we can upgrade (or downgrade) with no problem.
