Signing Prints and limited edition prints


Do people do limited edition prints? If so, how many in an edition and how much do they cahrge?

More specifically do you sign on the front or back and what ink/pencil type do you use to sign? (is it even possible to sign front?)

Re: Signing Prints and limited edition prints


And to try to suggest something that might be part of a solution ....

?what about having an oversized canvas at the bottom, but which is covered by the mount, that included all relevant info eg

title
photographer
Name of person producing the print
Name printer (eg epson xxx)
camera name
lens details
camera settings
Paper and ink details
Processing software
Etc

This information could then be repeated exactly on a signed certificate

Re: Signing Prints and limited edition prints


At the moment I don't limit prints to an edition but this is something I am thinking about doing this year.

As for cost, this is one of those question which could never reach an answer.

I don't sign the Matte board mainly because this cold be removed and separated from the print.

I sign and date the the rear of the print with an Archival marker pen called a Pigma Micfron 08

Re: Signing Prints and limited edition prints


 Sign the mount board bottom right, issue number on mount bottom left, and to all intents and purposes if for instance its a run of 20 and the first in the run is £100 the next print will be higher and so on until the last print in the run is the most expensive.

Re: Signing Prints and limited edition prints


I like the look of seeing a signature on the mount board but if the mount board is discarded then the signature is also discarded that's why signing the rear of the print is also impportant

This might be of help. There are four parts in total.

Re: Signing Prints and limited edition prints


Thanks Guys

this question arose recently when I printed the 'cley mist' image up to 17" wide on Canson Infinity photographique baryta - It looks amazing if I say so myself ( emoticon )and have had two requests for it , as signed and limited editions.


I think the idea might be to both sign on the rear and on the matting

However on this image, the first one I printed which they saw , I had also printed CLEY MIST and my name under it ( not knowing any better) one person asked to have it signed just above my printed [sign in to see URL] I was wondering if that would be wierd or possible... emoticon

Re: Signing Prints and limited edition prints


Personally I don't think signing the front would be at all weird. Seems perfectly reasonable to me.

Would it be visible or covered by the mount - that would be a matter for the purchased in my view.

Re: Signing Prints and limited edition prints


Im with Martin on this. I was asked earlier today to sign a print. Did exactly as Martin described. I didn't but signing the back is also an option in case the print is remounted.
