Prints explained

Print dimensions

Loose print dimensions are based on the overall size of the print. If a print is described as mounted then to ascertain the actual picture area, reduce the overall width and height specified by 14cm. Mounts are handmade using acid free archival board and are wrapped in clear polythene for presentation and protection. All International orders are dispatched loose un-mounted.

Limited edition prints

limited edition Giclée prints are an exact size reproduction of the original drawing. They are limited by a print run set by the artist, they are titled and signed by the artist. Limited editions are highly collectable and have the potential to increase in value.

Open edition prints

An open edition Giclée print is not restricted to how many times it can be reproduced. The signature and title is a printed copy of the artist original handwriting. Open editions are popular as they are more affordable and smaller than the equivalent limited edition image.

Artist proofs

Artist proofs were traditionally the first prints to come off the press in readiness for reproduction inspection. With modern technology an artist proof doesn’t reflect on the quality of the print but more relates to owning a rare portion of the artist collection. Artist proofs are only available directly from the artist. Artist proofs are titled and signed by the artist, an A/P prefix denotes their status.
