I painted the original in watercolor, then scanned and had it printed digitally on nice heavy paper. It's not archival, but I’ve had some test prints hanging in my studio for several years and they have not faded at all.
***If you are looking for a higher quality print and have a larger budget, you may want to consider the giclee prints in the "Larger Fine Art Prints" section.
What is the difference in quality between a giclee print and a less-expensive laser print? The laser prints look great on their own, and for the very low price they can't be beat. Giclee prints, however, in addition to being archival (kept out of direct sunshine, they should stay brilliant for a lifetime), are sharper, clearer, and more saturated with color. The surface of the paper is slightly textured and similar to watercolor paper, as opposed to the smooth matte finish of the paper we use for our laser prints.
One 8 x 10 print (actually 7 7/8” x 9 7/8”) in a minimal black plastic frame. Ready for hanging.
NOTE: The frame provided with this print is an inexpensive product. It could have a minor flaw, such as slightly scratched glass. These frames allow me to sell my prints ready-to-hang at a reasonable price, and do look great once they're on the wall.
