What does “Limited Edition” and “Open Edition” mean?
Most of my printed artworks are labeled as Limited Edition Fine Art Prints which means they are produced in a limited quantity set. When a Limited Edition runs out the prints will no longer be available. The bigger the size of requested artwork is, the less fine art prints are available for purchase. So naturally, the bigger fine art print you are interested in, the more valuable it is. You can find more information about “Edition” (printmaking) here. You can see more information about each artwork’s limited number of prints (e.g. Edition of 30) when choosing the size of the artwork in my Art Shop.
Some of my works are labeled as Open Edition Fine Art prints. They are printed the same way on the highest quality fine art papers as my Limited Edition Fine Art prints too. But because Open Editions have no limit on the number of prints produced, they are more affordable to purchase. Check out my FAQ page for more information.
The “Fine Art” printing
Because every artwork is unique and has various characters, and details, I always choose the best paper for each Limited Edition Fine Art Prints to achieve the best possible piece of art.
For most of my fine art prints, I use the Hahnemühle Photo Rag® Baryta 315 g/m² fine art paper. It produces stunning print results with outstanding reproduction of color, deep blacks, and perfect contrasts. For more information about this fantastic paper click here. For special works I may use fine art papers from the following brands too: Museo®, and Epson®.
All my fine artworks will be printed with pigment ink (Epson UltraChrome™ K3) except special orders. This guarantees long-lasting color and saturation. Epson UltraChrome K3 ink has improved print permanence characteristics that provide lightfastness ratings of up to 108 years for Color and over 200 years for Black and White prints under rigorous industry accepted display conditions.
