Limited Edition Prints
What is a Limited Edition?
A limited edition means prints are commercially available in a finite number for that size. For this reason, limited editions often have a higher perceived value as they will never be printed again.
Will you ever reissue a Limited Edition?
Absolutely not. Once a Limited Edition sells out, it will never be made available as a Limited Edition again for any reason.
Can you tell me about the inks and paper you use?
Sure! You can learn all about that here.
Do you make proofs of your Limited Edition prints?
Absolutely! We work closely with the experienced professionals at Duggal Visual Solutions to ensure our final product meets the highest standards. The process of making a final proof results in a digital file that is used to print the entire edition. It is important to us that every print in the edition is exactly the same.
My Limited Edition package has arrived! What should I do next?
Be patient. Try and resist the temptation to open the tube and remove your print. Avoid damaging your investment, which includes unwanted and unwelcome finger prints. Take the tube to your framing professional and carefully unpack it together.
If I lose my certificate of authenticity, can I get another?
Yes, a certificate of authenticity can be replaced. Please contact us and we can arrange to have a replacement sent to you. Please keep your certificate in a safe place like a safe or envelope on the back of your framed print.

Is my artwork shipped insured?
Absolutely! We insure all Limited Edition prints. We do not insure Open Edition prints as they ship directly from our lab to you.
What happens if my package arrives damaged?
Open Edition prints ship directly from our lab to you. The lab does an excellent job packaging these shipments and the vast majority of the time they arrive undamaged. However, we know that anything can happen in transit. If your Open Edition order arrives damaged, please contact us! We will happily replace it. We will even pay the cost of shipping a new order to you.
Limited Edition prints ship and arrive in large, double-packed, heavy-duty shipping tubes. If the outer box is damaged there is a high likelihood the inner tube, which is bubble wrapped, is fine. If you are concerned about a damaged print, please take several photographs of the tube and contact us immediately. We will get back to you promptly with instructions. Together let’s assess the best course of action. A request to replace a Limited Edition print can only be honored within seven (7) days of the tracking delivery date. Again, if your tube shows up damaged contact us immediately.
Can you ship to a PO box?
