Many of our artworks are printed using water-based inks with minimum VOC's (volatile
organic compounds). Water based inks are the greenest of the liquid inks.
GICLÉE* ON 100% COTTON CANVAS
Cotton is sustainable, renewable and biodegradable, making it an excellent choice as an
eco-friendly canvas. Our canvas is roller coated as opposed to sprayed in order to avoid
placing an undue and wasteful amount of material into the atmosphere. The protective
coating is a water-based varnish.
GICLÉE ON FINE ART BAMBOO PAPER
Fine Art Bamboo Paper is made from 90% bamboo fibers and 10% cotton and is OBA
free (no toxic, optical whiteners). As opposed to tree-based papers, bamboo is a grass
that grows at a rate making it one of the most sustainable natural materials in the world.
LUXE EDITION ON SUSTAINABLE BAMBOO
Our architectural plywood is made from 100% bamboo. It is a low-resin, open-grain
material that stains and finishes adhere to. It is certified MR 6 by LEED, the primary green
building rating system.
LUXE EDITION ON BRUSHED ALUMINUM
The manufacturer of our aluminum panels utilizes post-production recycling methods,
including incorporating the waste from the manufacturing process and purchasing
recycled material on the open market.
LUXE EDITION ON CLEAR ACRYLIC
Our standard clear acrylic has no "green" qualities due to the extreme difficultly of creat-
ing a clear product from recycled content. We offer a product that is made from 40%
post-consumer recycled content; however the price is considerably higher than our
standard offering. Please inquire with Sylvia Greer Artworks for a custom quote.
*GICLÉE (zhee-clay) – a high quality fine art print produced through an ink-jek printing
process and conforming to industry standards for color fidelity, resolution, and longevity.
