|OmniPrints are truly a unique form of limited edition reproductions, done directly on canvas, and a close facsimile of the artist's original painting. A process introduced to produce fine art limited edition reproductions, it is the "closest thing yet" to the artist's original paintings, say dealers and publishers. |
|What is an OmniPrint?|
An OmniPrint is a museum quality fine art reproduction that utilizes traditional high-resolution photography plus imaging technology to faithfully capture and reproduce the depth, the vibrancy, and the uniqueness of an original masterwork—the very soul of it. OmniPrints are created by a team of highly dedicated artisans and technicians who understand that great fine art reproduction requires more than mechanical skills. Omniprints are produced on many surfaces including paper and canvas. Canvas OmniPrints usually bear the texture of the original work of art as well.
|How is an OmniPrint different than others?
- OmniPrints are printed directly from highly specialized photographic negatives, received directly from the archives of the Smithsonian or from the original contemporary artworks.
- OmniPrints incorporate pigmented inks and other permanent materials to match the color, depth, vibrancy, and texture of the original work—the very soul of it.
- All OmniPrints of artwork from the Smithsonian Institution and other museums undergo a stringent color and quality check by the curatorial staff of the museum before the Smithsonian stamp is affixed and the artwork released.
- OmniPrints are reproduced on fine archival acid-free canvas or paper to capture the essence of the original artwork and to create a reproduction that is truly permanent and collectable.
- Backed by our 100% money-back guarantee of authenticity
|How are OmniPrints seen as a value?|
The valuation of a collectible is generally determined by three factors: Quality, Desirability, and Rarity. OmniPrints are the finest quality art reproduction available today. That is the reason why the Smithsonian and others have granted OmniFineArt the worldwide exclusive rights to reproduce artworks from their renowned collection. The desirability of OmniPrints can best be measured by the pleasure that is derived by you and your family and friends. Rarity of a fine art reproduction is determined by its edition size. In this case, OmniPrints in the Premium Collection contain only 799 pieces (plus 26 museum proofs) and the Portfolio Collection contains only 199 pieces (plus 26 museum proofs). Most editions of Platinum photographs have fewer. Some editions have as few as five multiples.
|What is an OmniGuard Authenticity Guarantee?|
The OmniGuard Guarantee is a 100% money back guarantee that assures the edition size and authenticity of each OmniPrint. Backed by insurance reserves, OmniGuard is the world's premiere art guarantee service, providing authenticity certification to leading art publishers, artists, and museums worldwide. As the art guarantee standard, only OmniGuard's Authenticity Guarantee is backed by fiduciary responsibility.
All Smithsonian images are accompanied by a unique, tamper-proof seal affixed on the artwork. Limited edition artwork arrives with a seal corresponding to numbered authenticity guarantee certificates. These items signify that the OmniPrints have been approved by the Smithsonian Institution for their content, color, accuracy, that their design is faithful to the original and that the edition is truly limited.
|How are OmniPrints framed?|
We recommend a frame which is respectful to the framing of the original and truly complements and enhances the OmniPrint to its fullest. Interior designers design our frames and many of our limited editions have their own unique frame. Separate from that, you may of course purchase your print unframed. Our frames, however, represent outstanding value. OmniPrints on paper or photographs are protected with either glass or Plexiglas. All framed artworks will be shipped with hanging wire attached. From shipping box to hanging on your wall—enjoyment is immediate and without hassle. We do it all for you!
|How are OmniPrints packed and shipped?|
Our framed and unframed prints are securely packaged with bubble wrap, boxed, and shipped via UPS Ground. Unframed prints are packed flat, stretched on wooden stretcher bars so they are ready to be taken to your personal framer. Framed prints are shipped with the hanging wire already attached.
Delivery for unframed prints can be expected within 3-4 weeks. Delivery for framed prints can be expected within 4-6 weeks.
|What are Limited Editions?|
Limited Editions are authorized copies of an original artwork where all prints are identical. There are several reproduction limited edition processes, including lithographs, serigraphs, sericels, and giclées. OmniFineArt uses a revolutionary new process to create its OmniPrints. The entire set of authorized reproductions is an edition. Each segment within an edition is a print.
