FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
What is a Limited Edition Print?
"Limited Edition" means the publisher has committed to only producing a limited number of prints and then the lithograph plates are destroyed. Yes, no more will ever be made. Very personalized - these art prints are individually hand signed and numbered by the artist. Please note that ALL hand signed and numbered Limited Edition Art Prints are sold UNFRAMED.
What is the difference between paper size and image size?
Most limited edition prints and posters have a white border around the image. Image
size reflects the dimensions of the image itself whereas paper size includes the white border in the dimensions. Since most artists sign and number their prints just below the image, some of this white border will be visible when framed. Allowing for the artist signature under the image is always something to consider when framing your art print. All Limited Edition art prints are listed with both the paper size and image size so you and your framer can decide how much white edge surrounding the image you prefer to see.
Framed Art Prints
Framed art prints are shipped from USA. Framed art comes assembled. Clear acrylic is preferred over traditional glass for shipping safety. Attached is a separate wall mount bracket, easily to attach and ready for wall hanging in moments. Each Frame is carefully wrapped in bubble wrap and a protective sleeve to ensure optimal protection to your frame and print.
