How do I present a giclée print for sale?

There are many ways to present a giclée print for sale to you potential print buyers. Some will cost more than others, some may get you more buyers than others and some will take up more space than others (an important thing to think about if you are selling from limited space at an art fair for example). Here is a brief outline of some of the options available to you.

If you are selling prints online then you might just want to offer prints rolled in a postal tube, by far the easiest and most cost effective way to send your prints out to clients. If you want to offer a 'print only' option but either don't want to roll them or don't need to roll them then they can be supplied flat, with a card backing wrapped in cellophane. They could be presented in an aperture mount, ready for the print buyer to get framed, when considering this option it's best to make the aperture mounts fit an 'off the shelf' frame, so that the print buyer doesn't have to go and have a custom sized frame made.

Alternatively, if you wanted to go the whole hog then you can offer your prints in a mount and a frame. Be careful with this option though, as you don't want to lose potential sales because the frame is not to the buyers liking, probably best to also offer it as a print only option also.

If you are offering canvas prints then you can either offer then stretched and ready to frame or you could also offer them as roles canvas prints. The rolled canvas print is the ideal option for sending a canvas print abroad, the costs of sending larger stretched canvases can be astronomical.

Many giclée print partners will be able to help and advise you on the best way for you to present your images.
