Giclée--Final October blow-out sale from Generation Maps

Talk About It Tuesday

 As you probably know, I advocate having a framed family tree in every home, and I love working with Generation Maps.  Other ways to preserve family memories, are to select beautiful family-oriented art and photos for our walls.  I feel this is a great buy, offered by Generation Maps through the end of the month.

Announcement from Generation Maps. FINAL SALE FOR THE MONTH OF OCTOBER..

“October 25th through the 31st Canvas Giclee will be 50% off the last week of October. Submit your picture of your favorite trick-or-treaters, or any other family or family history picture. We'll print you a beautiful art piece to enjoy for many years to come. Just enter the code 3CG103150 at check out.

A giclée(zhee-CLAY) is an individually produced, high-resolution, high-fidelity reproduction done on a special large format printer. Giclée are produced from digital images or scans of existing artwork. Also, since many artists now produce only digital art, there is no "original" that can be hung on a wall. Giclée solve that problem, while creating a whole new vibrant medium for art.

Generation Maps produces your favorite photograph on high-grade artist canvas to create the texture and feel of an oil painting. Giclée are perfect for family history photos because the texture fools the eye and softens a grainy antique picture. They are a truly personalized work of art.

Generation Maps offers three options for ordering and displaying your canvas giclée.

First, you can order the canvas alone, sent to you rolled up in a tube. This option is great if you are planning to do special framing yourself or if you have another option in mind for display. Sizes range from 8x8 inches to 36x48 inches, and come in popular contemporary looking squares or traditional rectangles.”

Remember the promo code 3CG103150.
