Can I offer Prints for sale?

Yes, you can offer Prints or Limited Edition of your artwork, as long as they are of excellent quality.

What’s the difference between an Open Edition & Limited Edition Print?

Photographic Prints & Prints of original artwork are generally sold as either ‘Limited’ or ‘Open’ Edition. An Open Edition means that there is no limit to the amount of prints, which may be produced from an original. A Limited Edition means that there is a set limit of prints in each edition, which may be sold. Limited Edition Prints are more valuable as they are separately numbered & signed by the creator, with only a set number of prints available.

How should I price my artwork?

You set your price – afterall, it’s your Artwork!

Quick Tip –The Length & Girth Formula

  • The Length plus Girth of a package is calculated by first measuring the three outside dimensions of the package including fractions. The longest of these dimensions is the package length (L). The two remaining dimensions become the package Width (W) & package height (H).
  • The package Length plus Girth formula equals the Length plus two times the Width plus two times the Height.
  • Length + Girth = L + (2xW) + (2xH)
  • If this total dimension includes a fraction, a fraction of ½ or greater will be rounded up; less than ½ will be rounded down to the next whole number.
