What is an original print?

An artist conceives and produces an original print through one or more printmaking techniques. The artist can use either classic printmaking techniques such as lithography, etching, relief and screenprinting or digital imaging to produce an original print.

When an artwork is conceived in another medium, copied (usually through a photographic process) and then printed using commercial processes such as giclee, it is a reproduction and not an original print.

Most original prints are made in limited editions of 10-50 to a maximum of 250, agreed and signed by the artist.
