Fine Art prints part of the collection and distributed by Daniel Castonguay Studios (DCS) are processed in a laboratory established in Montreal for more than 30 years. Using the finest pigment printing technology (giclée) with a rated lifespan of 150 to 200 years, works are rendered on Hahnemühle Photo Rag® Ultra Smooth Matt 308 g/m², 100% cotton, Fine Art archival paper. Prints are produced on a HP DesignJet Z9+ dr device, using genuine Hewlett-Packard pigmented inks.
Artworks come in limited edition of 8 in size of 24x36 inches (60x90 cm) to which is added a blank border of 2 inches (5 cm) for a total print dimension of 28x40 inches (70x100 cm). A numbered edition of 1 Artist Proof (A/P) is also available.*
Limited editions of 8 prints are exclusive, without subsequent reissues.
In compliance with the highest quality and authentication standards of fine galleries and museums, each print in limited edition is numbered, signed and accompanied by a certificate of authenticity, printed on white cotton 300 g/m² paper. The certificate is characterized by the embossed DCS logo and comes with an imprinted serial number. The serial number also sits on the back of the work as well as an artist authentication rubber stamp. All inks in use are of archival grade and manuscripts written in graphite, on acid & lignin-free papers.
Duplicates of documents of authenticity are archived in the vault of the Montreal DCS headquarters, ensuring traceability and confirming the ownership and the origin of the works.
Prints are carefully packed and shipped in a securely sealed dent-resistant roll of 5 inches diameter. In order to preserve archival characteristics, the paper and inks are protected by two sheets of archival grade glassine, the whole rolled on a rigid internal core of 3 inches diameter, protected from moisture by a poly tubing and bubble wrapped prior to final packing. Prints are shipped worldwide.
