Re: Signing Prints and limited edition prints


Simon asked,
quote:

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



Martin replied,

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.



This is usually how it is done. The size of the edition varies from 10-35 prints, and also there are sometimes a few "artists proofs" sold as well for a lower price. Pricing varies considerably. I have seen some that may start around the $100 mark, and some that start around $500, and see the last print finish at $3,500. There are also artist that demand much more than that. Prints are usually mounted, but not framed.

Now Clyde demands a good price for his work. Here is a good example. [sign in to see URL]

So, as Ian said, One of those things you could never reach an answer. emoticon

Re: Signing Prints and limited edition prints


There is no hard, fast rule on how many prints there should be in a limited edition. In the past, I have done as low as 25 and as high as 500 prints per edition. I agree with Ian about signing the print, I normally ad 1/2" of white space around the printed image before matting and this is where I sign.
