WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LIMITED AND OPEN EDITION PRINTS?
LIMITED EDITION PRINTS
A limited edition is a series of identical original art prints, numbered and signed by the artist. “Limited” means that there will only ever be a certain number of these particular prints produced, and once they are sold, there won’t be any more available. Some motives are only available in one size and some are available in two or even three sizes. The numbering system for limited edition prints shows the print number over the total quantity in the edition. Print #3 out of 10 would have this written on it: 3/10.
All my limited edition prints are signed and hand numbered by me on the front of the print, and come with a signed certificate of authenticity. The motives are printed in a limited edition of 5-10 pieces per motif and size (plus 3 Artist’s Proofs / size), on 100% archival cotton rag fine art photo paper with a slightly textured surface.
The artist’s proofs are my personal [identical] prints from each limited edition. These prints are also hand signed and numbered, showing the print number over the total quantity of the artist's proofs. Print #1 out of 3 would have this written on it: AP 1/3. Artist's proofs are only sold once the edition itself has sold out.
OPEN EDITION PRINTS
Open edition prints are not signed and numbered and will continuously be in stock. They are printed on archival cotton paper with a smooth surface.
HOW DO I BECOME A COLLECTOR?
Easy: just buy your first piece! And sign up for my newsletter to get exclusive previews of new limited edition prints before they go live online.
CAN THE PRINTS BE CUSTOMIZED?
Some custom options are available on the open edition prints, such as printing in sepia instead of black & white (or the other way around), custom cropping, other sizes, etc. Contact me and let me know what you are looking for. I will get back to you as soon as possible to let you know if I can accommodate your request.
If you are looking for a very large print and don't see the size you want listed, please contact me and let me know what you are looking for. Many of my images can be printed very large and I am happy to do a custom print for you.
DO YOU OFFER FRAMED PRINTS?
Yes! Custom framing is available on open edition prints. To purchase a framed print, contact me and let me know the style and size you are looking for. We will work together to find the perfect frame for you. At this time, framed prints are only available in the contiguous US. Please allow up to 3 weeks for delivery.
Treat your fine art print as if you were a museum curator. Always wash your hands before handling a print, or even better, wear white cotton gloves. Always lift prints by opposite corners, and avoid touching the printed area. When taking a rolled print out of the package, do not be tempted to roll it the other way since it might crease the paper and create scratches. Instead, leave it on a flat clean surface and it will flatten itself, without you having to do anything. If framing your print, please wait and do so when it is completely flat.
