An original print is a cleverly hand-crafted design, pressed into a bespoke artwork. For example a screen print, lithograpgh or etching. Unlike art prints, these aren’t reproducible. Simply put, once a piece has sold, there will never be any more like it.
The many names and options associated with art prints can be mind-boggling (like giclee), but here at Turua Gallery, this is all you need to know:
These prints depict either high-resolution images of original artworks, or clever digital illustrations. Depending on the kind, art prints can be open edition (unlimited prints), or limited edition, which ranges in availability from 200 to a competitive 10 prints. Most commonly, these works are printed on high quality archival paper with archival inks, which are known to be long lasting.
