Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is a limited edition Serigraph?

    A limited edition is a series of prints which are limited to a one-time printing of a certain number of pieces. The artist typically signs and numbers each print.
    Silkscreening, which was introduced around 1907, is also known as serigraph printing. During the process, a stencil of an image is placed on a taut screen with paper underneath. Ink is then spread on top and forced through the screen onto the paper with a squeegee. Unlike photo-offset, silkscreens (serigraphs) allow the artist to vary the colours and patterns while printing. A different screen is used for each colour in the print, and this results in a print with great colour density and many qualities of the original piece in terms of colour saturation.

  • By their nature of being limited in number, demand for certain limited edition prints can be greater than the number of reproductions produced for the edition. Once the publisher has sold out of the edition, the prints are considered to be on the secondary market. At this point a print often sells above issue price, depending on supply and demand.

  • The price of limited edition serigraphs is a function of the limited supply of each product, and the exceptionally high quality of these prints. Typically, smaller editions will be more expensive. The number of colours used and the popularity of the artist will also determine the value.

  • An artist's proof is a print set aside from an edition for an artist's use. Typically some of the first prints pulled from a limited edition of prints are marked as an A.P.. Artist's proofs normally sell at a premium.

  • A remarque is a personal message or image added by the artist to the design. A remarque increases the value of a limited edition serigraph due to this unique feature.

  • A printer's proof is a print set aside from an edition for a printer's use. Printer's proofs are very low in numbers.
