  1. What exactly is a Giclée Print?


    Giclée is an invented name for the process of making fine art prints from a digital source using ink-jet printing. The word "giclée" is derived from the French language word "le gicleur" meaning "nozzle", or more specifically "gicler" meaning "to squirt, spurt, or spray". It was coined in 1991 by Jack Duganne, a printmaker working in the field, to represent any inkjet-based digital print used as fine art.

    Our giclée prints are high-resolution reproduction prints produced on special large format printers at high resolutions of 1440 dots per inch (dpi). The giclée prints are individually printed when you order; they really are made just for you.  They are produced from the high resolution digital photograph or scans of the original artworks. This technique is regarded as the apex of fine art reproduction methods and is the standard choice for museums and art galleries for reproducing their artworks.

  2. How does a Giclée print compare to a lithographic print?


    Our giclée prints are far superior to the low priced mass produced lithographic prints on the high street and on many online poster shops:

    • We print at high resolutions of 1440 dots per inch

    • We use eight different colour lightfast, pigmented inks to produce fantastic colour range, clarity and long-term vibrancy

    • With numerous and finer print-heads we produce a wider colour gamut to ensure crisp prints

    • Ink is sprayed onto the page mixing colours to create true shades, hues and a continuous tone

    • Lithography uses tiny dots of different sizes and four colours to fool the eye into seeing hues & shades

    • We print direct from high resolution digital files of the digital photos or scans of the artwork

    • Lithography prints at 300 dpi from negatives & plates which do not retain the level of detail for fine art

    • Or prints (or substrate) materials are thicker and stronger and will last longer.

  3. How can I be confident of the quality of your prints?


    It is quite simple - ALL these Hobbs Golf prints, canvases and framed pictures are of the highest quality, or your money back.  Because we print at 1440 dots  per inch, the image on the giclée prints, when highly magnified, remains in sharp focus and you can still see detail such as brush strokes and paint texture. We use superb UV inks and state of the art printing machines to ensure a perfect result every time.the art machines are used to ensure a perfect result every time.

  4. What is the availability of these Golfing Prints?


    Every image displayed in this collection is always available for you to buy as a fine art print - on canvas or framed.  We do not keep a stock of prints....we really do print every fine art print and frame them when you order......on-demand.  On the odd occasion that an image file is corrupted or that an original print has been scanned incorrectly, we address these immediately and then print orders as normal.

  6. How do I choose a frame for my Golfing print?


    Use the online framing and mounting facility to experiment – we have many mounts and frames from which to choose.

    Once you have found the ideal print, you can choose a frame for it using our custom framing facility. Click on the 'View Framed' icon under each thumbnail image on the site or to the right of the image when it is enlarged. View or change the frame moulding by selecting from the frames menu; for example, change 'light wood' to 'gold' by clicking on the 'gold' button on the frames menu?

    Try to choose a frame width that is in keeping with the image size: a wide frame will overwhelm a small picture whilst a narrow frame will have little impact on large print. Do the same when selecting the 50mm or 100mm mount to ensure you get the perfect combination of frame, mount and image.

    Finally, click on the colour chart under ‘Choose a wall colour’ to view the finished picture against any one of a range of wall colours that you have at home.

  7. How should I select a suitable mount and picture moulding (frame) for my Golfing print?


    A mount board is a piece of ‘card’ with a bevel edge that forms a border around your print. A mount board helps to highlight the image with in the frame and indeed the frame itself. You can change the size and colour of your mount using the mounts menu at the left of the framing page. You can also remove a mount completely, in which case we will frame the print up to the edge of the image.

  8. Are the frames as good as I can get on the High Street?


    Our framing is of the highest quality and undertaken by our own dedicated Fine Art Trade Guild Commended Framers. We only use the best materials from the most reputable suppliers. Each frame is hand crafted by an experienced professional. See ‘Help’ for more information about our frames. They are at least as good if not better value than you would get yourself and without the hassle.

  9. What are the canvas prints like?


    Our giclée printing process produces a absolutely stunning finish on canvas – just like the original works. We offer prints finished in this way as ‘rolled’ ready for you to have mounted or as 'box mounted' ready for you to hang on the wall. For more details see ‘About our Canvas Prints. Under the Help menu.

  10. What is a ‘box mounted' canvas print?


    The box mounted prints are canvas prints stretched over a professionally made high quality frame including expansion joints to maintain a taut finish and stretcher bars top maintain structural integrity.  The box canvas print provides a fabulous contemporary finish for your artwork. Please visit our ‘Help’ section to learn more about our canvas prints.

  11. How should I look after my fine art print?


    Always handle your pictures with care. When carrying and transporting a picture, never pick up frames by one side - grasp the frame firmly on both sides. If you have to store pictures or stack pictures, stand them vertically 'glass to glass' so that the hangers do not touch or damage the frame or glass. For more details and guidance on how to look after your fine art prints please see ‘Tips and Care of Prints’ in the ‘Help’ pages.
