Open Edition Prints

An open edition print is one where there is no limit on the prints availability. These are the most inexpensive way to purchase art as everyone can have a copy.

They are generally printed in high volume on lower quality materials so as to keep the price down.

Artists will often have a catalogue of open edition prints that mean that anyone who wants to buy their work can with the price remaining affordable to all. 

However if a print has been released as a Limited Edition it can never be provided as an open edition.

Open Editions may have a signature from the artist but this is likely to be a printed replica and they will not be numbered.
