Print Process

Limited Edition Prints

The Limited Edition collection of nautical prints at the Onne van der Wal Gallery are Onne's top selling images. Each image is a Limited Edition and we print only 250 of each limited edition print. The print size does not affect the edition numbering. After the image reaches #250, we no longer make prints of that image in the Limited Edition series. Each print is numbered and signed by Onne himself!

How Our Prints Are Made

Our Limited Edition, Custom and Mini Print photographs are giclée prints made with a Canon image PROGRAF iPF8100 inkjet printer on Canon Satin photographic paper. Come see our printing process in the gallery where we have our beautiful Canon printer out in the open for all to admire! Our wrapped canvas images are printed, sprayed with a UV laminate and then stretched offsite by our capable printer and framers in East Greenwich, RI. We make the very highest quality archival prints and canvases and stand 100% behind our product.

What is a "Giclée?" (pronounced "jee-Clay")

Giclée is a French term, which means "to spray." It was actually coined by a U.S. company to distinguish the printing process they used (using a highly refined inkjet printer) from a standard offset printing process. Giclée prints offer the ability to reproduce artwork on a variety of specially treated substrates including canvas, fine art papers and photo papers. A giclée print must meet certain standards. It must be printed using only archival papers and inks. Otherwise, the artwork would fade and lose its original appeal and value. The Onne van der Wal Gallery only uses the giclée printing process on archival photo paper, 100% cotton watercolor rag paper, and canvas.

Please note that each photograph is custom produced. Your framed print will take approximately 3 weeks to be printed and framed. Please allow for this time when placing an order. Rush orders are possible for an additional charge. Unframed prints take 1-2 weeks to produce.
