Selling Limited Editions & Prints
I am planning to begin offering artwork for sale online through my own website/blog as well as on Etsy. The artwork in question is digital, at least initially, and is 10 inches x 10 Inches.
I wanted to find out what the feeling was on offering both limited edition prints on canvas and open edition prints of the same piece of artwork.
The limited edition prints on canvas would be stretched and mounted as well as be signed/dated and accompanied by a certificate. Since the artwork is digital, I feel that having a limited run of canvas prints would help with the collector aspect as there is no true "original".
The open edition prints would be printed on matte paper and would be signed/dated as well.
Having different pieces of artwork on each would not be a problem either, however, I would like to offer different price points for various pieces of work.
At the moment, the mounted print on canvas is looking to be roughly 4 times the cost of the matte print, so I think some price options are needed.
