What is a Limited Edition?

Limited edition prints are produced in limited numbers; this scarcity of supply can make them sought after by buyers. Some prints are produced in editions of less than 50. A print is made of original artwork and edition size is decided on by the artist or publisher. After the edition is sold out that particular print will not be published again

All Limited Edition prints on sale in this gallery are always signed by the artist and have a certificate of Authenticity on the back of the artwork

Owning a Limited Edition Signed Print means you are part of an exclusive base who's will only own that print unless it gets sold out.

Limited edition prints exist in a specific quantity determined in advance by the artist.

Are limited edition prints an investment?

Limited edition art prints have a fixed number of prints available. Because they are limited, there is often a higher demand for them – ultimately increasing the overall value of the print. Smaller editions will hold more value than larger editions due to the higher demand.

Can you reprint a limited edition print?

Limited Edition Prints are prints produced in limited numbers, which makes the image more valuable and even the prints will have a higher price than open editions. Once the determined number has sold out the artist is committed to make no other reproduction of that work.

Is an artist's proof worth more than a limited edition?

Artist Proofs tend to sell for more than Limited Edition prints even when the two are identical. With older prints, this was due to their better quality.

What does PP mean on a limited edition print?

Printer's Proof

A Printer's Proof (PP) is similar to an artist's proof. They were originally designed to monitor the progress of printing. They are a print or object that the manufacturer or printer receives as proof of their work.

Sounds, special right?

Well, owning a limited edition print will certainly set you apart from other art collectors, you know. Its rarity can add value and shine a light on the distinct elements of your collection.

No number on any print is worth more than another hence the entire collection will all be priced at the same price from numbers 1-100 or more

If you are to purchase a limited edition print, it should have:

  • Numbered prints: Usually, it will have a number to show its version, like 1/10-10/10.
  • Artist Proof: The number of impressions made by the artist, for example, 2/3.A/P
  • Printers Proof: A prototype of the print before it's been printed. 1/10PP

If you're looking to purchase a limited edition to add value to your collection, then you will undoubtedly want to make sure it's signed. A print that the artist sign will add value.

The majority of the time, a signature is kept in the bottom right corner, which adds to the authenticity

What is a Giclee Print?

A Giclee print is the highest quality print available today. The word Giclee is a French word meaning 'to squirt'. The process is digital printmaking with a printer that uses minute droplets of archival-pigmented ink to create prints that cannot be duplicated by other printing techniques. Because there is no visible dot screen pattern the resulting image has all of the subtle tonalities of the original art. Each dot may have over 4 billion possible colours! This produces exceptional museum-quality prints.

What is an Original Painting?
