Excuse me if this is a FAQ covered somewhere on the board, but I was just wondering...

How do most of you output and market your digital art? From what I've read, giclees printed on watercolor paper seem to be the norm for output. Is that right or is some other method the "standard"?

Then there's the question of marketing. Given that there is no "original" when you create a digital piece, how do you market it? Do you print a large amount of copies (like say 50) and market them like fine art prints at a lower price? Or, do you just output one and sell it at a higher price?

Thanks

There are many variants to consider and it depends also on your goals.
Some artists print 1 copy at a large size and sell smaller sizes as limited editions.

Regarding output, I print to watercolor paper and also to canvas. It depends on the final look I want for the piece.

I print my own on an A3+ printer using archival inks and paper. I call them prints since the original is always virtual. If I do copies I number them and give a little cerificate with them.
