Glamour II Giclée Veneer

We apply this coating to prints on our Canvas and Photo Silk at no extra charge. Glamour™ II has been developed by Breathing Color to protect, preserve and enhance fine art and photographic prints. It is a non-yellowing, water-based, perfectly clear varnish that enhances the color of pigmented inks on matte media and increases resistance to UV light that causes image fading. It will also protect your expensive prints against moisture and abrasion. You can find more information on this product at Breathingcolor.com.

Matte or gloss

We can coat with either matte or gloss Glamour II. We recommend a gloss coating so your lamp will have the deepest blacks and brightest colors with the light off. The matte shows no reflections from lights and windows, but there will be less contrast and dull colors lacking brilliance. The gloss does show glare and reflections but less than that from glass or photo papers.
