What is a Limited Edition Print?
A Limited Edition is an edition of identical prints numbered sequentially and individually signed by the artist, having a stated limit to the number in the edition. Our edition sizes can vary dramatically, normally ranging from 35 to 1150. A limited edition print is produced using museum quality inks and pH neutral (acid-free) paper to preserve the life of the print and to prevent discoloration. All limited edition prints are accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.

What is an Artist’s Proof?
Artist’s Proofs are a special subset of the regular limited edition, traditionally totaling about 10% of the regular edition. Although they are virtually identical to the regular edition, Artist’s Proofs are all signed by the artist and numbered consecutively with Roman numerals, for example, AP VIII/XXV (meaning 8 out of 25 prints). Since 2002, all Artist’s Proofs of the paper edition have Mort Künstler's signature embossed in the right hand margin. Because of their smaller editions, Artist’s Proofs are more rare and therefore, higher priced.

What is a Giclée?
A Giclée print is created with digital printers using tiny ink jets that spray microscopic ink droplets onto a sheet of canvas, creating a lush, vibrant and textured art print that has the look of an original painting.

How long will it take to get my Giclée order?
Giclées can usually be shipped within 2-3 weeks of ordering.
